Rakesh Srivastava, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, HMIL, said, “Hyundai continues to sustain strong growth trajectory, volume of 41,201 units with growth of 12.9 per cent on the strength of strong pull performance of Grand i10, Elite i20 and Creta in a market showing improved customer sentiments led by good monsoons, low inflation, reduced interest rates and dropping fuel prices.”
Hyundai’s domestic sales show a double-digit growth owing to their strong product line-up. The latestCreta SUV has tasted a fair bit of success ever since it was launched in July last year and continues to pull up sales numbers for HMIL. The Korean manufacturer will soon launch the new Elantra that will replace the current sedan sold in the Indian market. We can expect it to be launched by the end of this month.
