Hyundai Motors India becomes the No. 1 UV manufacturer of the country as the automaker dispatched 12,833 units of Creta and Venue last month.
Hyundai Motors is India’s second-largest carmaker and is quite popular in the SUV segment of the country. Hyundai Creta is the top-selling mid-size SUV in our market. The SUV was launched back in 2015 with a tagline ‘The Perfect SUV’. Recently, Hyundai launched the new-gen model of the mid-size SUV with an all-new tagline ‘The Ultimate SUV’. Moreover, back in 2019, the carmaker also launched its first sub-compact SUV named Venue with a tagline ‘The Connected SUV’. Both these SUVs pushed Hyundai to the top of the SUV sales chart in the country.

Also, note that the figures mentioned above are the units which are sent out by the carmakers to the dealerships. The dealerships are not able to retail cars in the country due to the 21-day nation-wide lockdown. The Indian automobile industry is going through a huge loss because the carmakers have halted the manufacturing at their production facilities and are concentrating more towards producing medical equipment like face masks and ventilators.
