Car Sales December 2020: Hyundai Motor India registers highest ever December sales
Hyundai Motor India, the country's second-largest carmaker, has registered sales of 47,400 units last month, making this its highest-ever figure for the month of December. This is a 24.89 per cent increase over December 2019's 37,953 units. The company also secured its highest ever production numbers in a single month with 71,178 units.
Among other milestones achieved by Hyundai India this month, the Korean brand has now become the best-selling SUV brand in the country for 2020 with 1,80,237 units of this body type sold in CY 2020. This is largely down to the strong showing of models like the Creta and Venue. Other successful launches for the brand have been the new Hyundai i20 and the facelifted Hyundai Verna. Exports have also been lucrative for Hyundai India, these increases by a significant 58.84 per cent to 12,182 units.
Speaking on his firm's performance, SS Kim, MD and CEO of Hyundai Motor India said, "The world has witnessed multiple challenges in 2020. However, as the most innovative brand, Hyundai has emerged stronger out of this crisis, leading the way for economic revival. Right from the introduction of innovative initiatives such as Click-to-Buy and Hyundai Mobility Membership to the launch of Aura, Creta, Verna, Tucson and the all-new i20 coupled with multiple powertrain options, we have redefined experiences to give customers superior products & services in every segment. This clearly reflected in our domestic sales that achieved new horizons, with Hyundai managing to increase market share for the second year in succession."
