The first car that came out of Hyundai Motor India’s stable in Indian automotive market was the Santro. The small car also accounts to be one of the most successful cars in small car segment. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Santro redefined the concept of small cars among Indian customers. It was a small car based on tall boy platform and was endorsed by one of the biggest Bollywood star - Shah Rukh Khan.

Executive Management And Indian Operations

Mr. Bo Shin SEO is currently the CEO and Managing Director of HMIL (Hyundai Motor India Limited). Other people holding key responsibilities in this company are Puneet Anand and Devdatta Mulchandani (Deputy General Manager) and Mr. Sekar S (Senior Manager). The company is headquartered at a small place near Kanchipuram district, Sriperumbudur, in Tamil Nadu. The Korean car maker has two major manufacturing plants in India. The first one is located in Chennai and takes care of capability tests, quality tests, and advance production.  In order to meet the increasing demand for its vehicles, Hyundai raised its second manufacturing facility in 2008. The new facility bears potential to roll out 300, 000 units per annum. The two plants have a joint capacity to produce 6.75 lakhs vehicles in a year. Hyundai has also established a R&D facility in Hyderabad which is known as Hyundai Motor India Engineering. In last one decade, the company has managed to export more than 10 lakhs vehicles across the world. Hyundai’s Indian subsidiary is presently exporting its cars from India to more than 120 nations in the world.

Products And Services

The second largest car manufacturer, Hyundai Motor India, holds a strong grip over urban as well as semi-urban regions of India. The Korean car maker maintains a very strong dealership and service network across the nation. In terms of figures, HMIL has more than 1000 service points and 450 dealers spread across India. Hyundai plans to increase this figure in coming years.

The models equipped with this facility are Hyundai i10, Grand i10, and Eon. To move ahead in this respect, the company is planning to add CNG and hybrid power trains with all its cars in coming years.

Founder And First Car

Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company was founded by Chung Ju-Yung. In 1967, the same man laid foundations of Hyundai Motor Company. It logo, the letter “H” represents the automaker’s unending association with its customers. It was year 1968 when Hyundai Motor Company launched its first car mode, the Cortina, in association with the American car maker, Ford Motor Company. However, it export business started when it began exporting its Pony car to Canadian automotive market in 1983. The car was exceptionally successful and received high response from critics as well as customers

USP

One of the major reasons responsible for Hyundai Motor Company’s success in India is its strong service and dealership network. Moreover, Hyundai car models in India are loaded with features and latest technologies. An aggressive pricing strategy is another added benefit that has turned it into a masses favorite car maker. Almost all Hyundai cars have made a mark for their fuel efficiency but the most admired ones include Eon, Elitei20, Grand i10, and Verna. Though almost all the Hyundai cars are known for offering high mileage, the most fuel efficient Hyundai Cars are - Grand i10, i20 Active and Eon.

Resale Value

Higher fuel economy and lower maintenance costs are the two prime reasons why Hyundai cars have gained special place in buyers’ aspirations and inspirations. Higher localization of its components has led to competitive pricing of its products and has offered it an edge over other brands. It is true that the South Korean car maker is now earning a fair place in premium cars market; it has earned its market share on the basis of its fuel efficient models that have higher resale value in used car market.

Competition

Maruti Suzuki India has ruled Indian automotive market from last three decades undisputedly. Its total market share stands at 44 per cent which is pretty high compared to any other brand in Indian market. Hyundai stands on second position with 20 per cent market share which is a pretty higher figure but comparatively lower as compared to its prime competitors Maruti. In this respect, Hyundai still has a long way to go before it stands eye-to-eye with Maruti and tries to claim its throne. It is also facing a close threat from Mahindra and Honda who are on 3rd and 4th position respectively and are registering a constant growth in market.
