Hyundai Motor India has cumulatively sold over 1 Million SUVs in domestic and export markets. Hyundai Motor India’s growth in the SUV segment was accelerated by the launch of CRETA in 2015. Venue, Creta, Tucson and Kona EV now propel SUV sales for Hyundai in the Indian market along with Creta.
Hyundai today announced the achievement of over 1 Million ‘Made in India’ SUVs sold cumulatively across domestic and export markets.
Commenting on the achievement, Mr. Tarun Garg, Director (Sales, Marketing & Service), Hyundai Motor India Ltd., said, “We are extremely grateful for the love and trust our customers have presented in Hyundai branded SUVs. As frontrunners in the introduction of revolutionary technologies, we continue to establish new milestones and redefine benchmarks across segments. With over 1 Million cumulative SUV sales in domestic and export markets, we have reiterated the promise of Make-in-India over nearly two and a half decades of our presence in India. This achievement also epitomizes our manufacturing excellence and the unconditional admiration for the Hyundai brand in India. Our journey towards SUV leadership was initiated by brands such as TUCSON, SANTA FE and TERRACAN. Now we have witnessed exponential growth in the segment with the launch of contemporary brands like CRETA and VENUE that have quickly gone on to become well-established household names.”
To commemorate the achievement, Hyundai has launched the ‘No.1 SUV Maker’ national campaign.
Launched in 2015, CRETA was an instant hit amongst the masses. Over the years since launch, CRETA has been a best seller for Hyundai India, recording cumulative sales of over 5.9 lakh units in the domestic market and over 2.2 lakh units in the export market.
