Hyundai Motor India rolls out 7 millionth car

From coming to India as a totally unknown brand to becoming India’s second largest car manufacturer is a feat to be recorded in the history books. And still continuing to make history, Hyundai just rolled out its seven millionth car from the Sriperumpudur plant in Chennai.

With this, HMI achieved the distinction of being the second best position amongst its overseas peers, only after China, in Hyundai Motor Group and the first auto manufacturer, in India to achieve this feat in a record time within 18 years of commercial operation. HMIL rolled out its first million car, a Santro, in 2006 just 8 years after commencement of commercial production in 1998. Thereafter, production picked up momentum, with the next million milestone being achieved within an average of 18 -19 months. The 5 millionth car was flagged off in October 2013 by HUYNDAI’s brand ambassador Shahrukh Khan.

At an intimate event, congratulating employees on this very significant achievement, an exuberant Mr. Y.K Koo, Managing Director and CEO, Hyundai Motor India Limited said, “ HMIL has always  set new benchmarks in terms of quality and  customer delight by introducing new products with new technology and design to the Indian market, demonstrating  superior manufacturing prowess.  Our ‘Made in India’ products have impressed global and Indian customers alike. We now have to move to realize our vision as announced during our 20th year of foundation on May 6th 2016, of being the Market Leader, great place to work, most loved and trusted brand with modern premium brand essence to touch 10 million units within the first half of 2021. I thank each one for his commitment towards making HUYNDAI, the most loved and trusted brand in India.” He further expressed on behalf of HYUNDAI, his sincere appreciation and gratitude  to the government of Tamil Nadu for their contribution in Hyundai’s  success.
