Car Sales November 2020: Hyundai India records highest ever numbers for the month
On the back of achieving its highest monthly sales ever, Hyundai India has now seen its highest ever sales for the November month.
The Korean brand dispatched 48,800 units for domestic sales and 10,400 for export, for a total output of 59,200 units. This is a 9.4 percent increase over the same period last year. The new Hyundai i20 has been the major driver for the brand the past month, having garnered over 20,000 bookings within 20 days of its launch. The Venue and Creta SUVs have retained their popularity as well.
Prices for the i20 premium hatchback start from Rs 6.80 lakh for the base petrol variant and go up to Rs 10.60 for the top-end diesel-manual. Prices for the turbo-iMT variant start from Rs 8.80 lakh with the turbo-DCT priced from Rs 10.67 lakh. Prices for the diesel Hyundai i20 start from Rs 8.20 lakh. These prices are ex-showroom India and applicable up to December 31, 2020.
The 2020 Hyundai i20 is powered by a set of familiar engines, already seen on cars like the Venue and facelifted Verna. At the base of the range is the 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated Kappa four-cylinder petrol which makes 83PS when paired with a five-speed manual and 88PS when paired with the CVT. Torque output is 114 Nm. The 1.0-litre three-cylinder T-GDi makes an appearance here too, in its highest 120PS and 172 Nm form. This pairs with either a seven-speed DCT or a six-speed iMT. There is no manual option but Hyundai claims a 0 to 100 kmph time of 9.9s with the turbo-iMT. The diesel engine option is the 1.5-litre four-cylinder U2 CRDi diesel. Seen here in its non-VGT 100PS and 240 Nm, this motor pairs only with a six-speed manual.
