Hyundai Cars in India

Chung Ju-Yung founded the Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company and later in 1967 founded Hyundai Motors limited. Hyundai as a word means modernity, which truly reflects in Hyundai car designs and technology. Hyundai entered Indian market quite late as compared to other carmakers. In 1996, Hyundai came to India and established a production plant in Irrungattukotai near Chennai. Hyundai’s first product made in India was Hyundai Santro that was a huge success. The tall-boy small car features impressed Indian crowd and still is the most successful car from Hyundai. Hyundai has two manufacturing plants in India located at Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu. Both plants have a combined annual capacity of 600,000 units. In 2007 Hyundai opened its R&D facility in Hyderabad. Getz was not as successful as Santro, the car didn’t do well on the Indian grounds but Hyundai came back with a bang and launched i10 and i20. Hyundai Accent and Verna are another two successful cars in A3 segment that are popular amongst Indian crowd.

Santro was the first product from Hyundai India. It is the most successful car that charmed Indian Crowd. The best thing about Santro is tall-boy small car features that made Indians go ga ga over it. It was launched in direct competition with Maruti Suzuki Zen.
