On 6th May, 1996, Hyundai India laid its foundation for its facility in India and began operations on September 1998 by commissioning its first integrated car manufacturing plant outside Korea in Sriperumbudur near Chennai. Hyundai Santro, which has been the iconic tallboy car by the brand  was the first car in India to be based on the MPFI engine as against the prevailing carburetor based engines favoured by competition.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. YK Koo, MD and CEO, HMIL said “This is a very important milestone for us.  20 years ago we only had a dream of transforming the Indian auto industry by introducing contemporary products and today that dream has come true. We were also the first proponents of “Make in India” and showcasing India’s manufacturing prowess to the world. That vision is validated with HMIL and India remaining at the heart of HMC’s global operations and a key hub for exports. We have received tremendous support from the Indian customer and I am confident that this support and co-operation continues, going forward”

As part of the yearlong celebrations, HMIL has also launched a new logo to illustrate its 20 years of success and togetherness in India. As a gesture of appreciation and goodwill, HMIL will organize a grand carnival for its employees at the factory premise, over the weekend.
