Hyundai India has achieved yet another milestone for its most awarded and admired brands crossing 1.3 Million Sales Volume. The troika of Grand i10-Creta-Elite i20 has clocked domestic sales of 1.01 Million units and exports of 0.29 Million units with cumulative sales of over 1.3 Million units. For those asking, Hyundai Grand i10 was awarded the Indian Car of the Year (ICOTY) Award in 2014, while the Elite i20 grabbed this accolade in 2015 followed by the Creta SUV in 2016. Hence, the South-Korean automaker has collectively named these three vehicles as 'Super Performer Brands'.
Commenting on HMIL’s Super Performer Brands, Mr. Y K Koo, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India said, “We thank our Customers, Channel Partners and Vendors for their contribution in Hyundai’s success in the country. This milestone reflects the strong connect and confidence that our stakeholders have on brand Hyundai. Grand i10, Elite i20 and Creta are trendsetters and winners. The 1.3 Million milestone is testimony of Hyundai’s sharp and undeterred focus on creating customer delight and unique experiences.” The Super Performer brands have set a new benchmark in their respective segments with class-leading features and unmatched performance in every aspect including safety, performance and product quality.
“Grand i10, Elite i20 and Creta are winners of J D Power APPEAL Award 2016 demonstrating excellence of ‘Made in India’ products as per global standards”, he added. The continued success of this troika has further strengthened Hyundai’s position as a Premium Car Manufacturer in India. Meanwhile, the company is all set to launch the 2017 Verna facelift in the Indian market on August 21, 2017. The new and updated sedan has been already spotted several times as test mule with camouflage. It would be locally built at the company's production facility in Chennai, while pricing is expected to start at Rs. 8 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom). 2017 Hyundai Verna facelift would challenge the likes of Maruti Ciaz, Honda City, Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid in the country.
