Hyundai sold 6,783 units of the Creta in July and 7,473 units in August, with the prospective buyers still making a beeline for the Hyundai dealerships to pursue bookings. There was a good amount of bookings before the car was launched and the number increased with the launch on July 21. More than 54,000 units have been booked till now and 80 per cent of these bookings are for the diesel model.
However, with the increase in the number of bookings, the waiting period for the delivery of the car has also increased to six to eight months across India. This period varies depending upon the choice of the variant and the region. Nevertheless, Hyundai Motor India has increased the production of the Creta, looking at the good demand of the car. They ramped up the production of 5,000 units per month to 6,500 per month with an aim to reduce the waiting period of the car.
The Creta crossover is the fourth product from Hyundai to achieve such a landmark. This comes after the success of the Grand i10, Xcent and the Elite i20, which had achieved similar milestones in little time.
