Hyundai Motor India will increase the production of the Creta looking at the good demand for the car. From a current 5,000 units a month, the manufacturer will increase this number to 6,500 per month to reduce the waiting period of the car.
Ever since Hyundai started bookings for the Creta, there was a beeline of prospective buyers at the dealerships. Even prior to its launch on July 21, the Creta generated a good amount of buying interest and the bookings continue to grow. More than 30,000 units have been booked till now.
Judging by these numbers Hyundai might consider the Creta a successful product. Now, looking at the demand, the carmaker is mulling plans to ramp up the production to help reduce the waiting period for the car by some months. At present, the Creta has a waiting period of about six to eight months depending upon the choice of the variant; 80 per cent of the bookings being for the diesel model.
After the Grand i10, Xcent and the Elite i20, the Creta crossover is the fourth product from Hyundai to achieve such a milestone in such less time. Earlier, it was the Grand i10, which had received 10,000 bookings in 20 days. This was followed by the Xcent that had registered 11,000 bookings in 30 days and then the Elite i20 that is still raking in sales for the company. Hopefully, with the ramped production, the waiting period should go down in the coming months.
