History

Hyundai Motor India Ltd is a fully owned subsidiary of the South Korean automaker Hyundai Motor Company. It is the second largest car manufacturer and the largest passenger car exporter in the country. The company made its entry into the Indian automobile market in 1996, and is known for offering affordable yet stylish cars.

Hyundai Motor India’s first product in India was the Santro, which is also Hyundai's most successful car to date. The Santro managed to attract buyers, thanks to its tall boy small car. Ever since its inception in the Indian market, Bollywood's superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been associated with Hyundai India as its brand ambassador.

Indian Operations and Executive Managements
Mr. Bo Shin Seo is the Managing Director and CEO of the Hyundai Motor India Ltd. The other management people are Devdatta Mulchandani & Punert Anand (Deputy General Manager), and Sekar S (Senior Manager).  The company's India headquarters is situated in Sriperumbudur, Kanchipuram district, Tamil Nadu. Hyundai Motor India Limited has two manufacturing facilities in the country. Its production facility near Chennai is known for advance production, quality and testing capabilities. The company introduced its second production plant in February 2008 to meet the rising demand in the country. The new production unit is capable of developing 300,000 units per annum; while the HMIL's both units have a total production capacity of 6.75 lakh units per annum. Hyundai has also set up an R&D (Research & Development) facility, named Hyundai Motor India Engineering, in Hyderabad. The company has managed to export over 10 lakh cars in just over 10 years. Hyundai India is currently exporting cars to more than 120 countries across the globe.

Products & Services
Hyundai Motor India, the country's second largest carmaker has a strong hold in both semi-urban and urban regions in India. The company has a strong dealership network and service network spread across the country, which is continuously increasing to meet rising demand. Currently, HMIL has more than 450 dealers and more than 1000 service points across the country.

Environmental Initiatives
Hyundai Motor India is offering a series of LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) cars in the Indian car market. Hyundai cars that come equipped with LPG kit are Hyundai i10, Eon and Grand i0. In order to offer more environmental friendly vehicles, the South Korean automaker is planning to add more CNG and hybrid cars in its Indian portfolio.

Founder & First Car
Chung Ju-Yung founded Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company, who later founded Hyundai Motor Company in 1967.  Its tilted 'H' logo refers to the company’s collaboration (Shaking hands) with its customers.

Hyundai’s first model, the Cortina, was introduced in alliance with Ford Motor Company in 1968. The export business started in 1983, when the company initiated exporting its Pony car to Canada. The vehicle received many buyers and positive response from critics in Canada because of its aggressive pricing and features.

USP
The major reason behind the great success of Hyundai Motor in India is its strong dealership and service network. Moreover, Hyundai car models in India are feature loaded and offers aggressive pricing tag. Though almost all the Hyundai cars are known for offering high mileage, the most fuel efficient Hyundai Cars are - Grand i10, i20 Active and Xcent.

Resale Value
With low maintenance cost and high fuel efficiency, the resale value of Hyundai Cars in India is pretty decent. The use of high level of local components also plays an important role to keep prices competitive in the market. While the premium cars from the South Korean brand are quite popular in the used car market, most popular ones are the fuel efficient Hyundai Cars. 

Competition
Currently, Maruti Suzuki India is ruling the Indian auto market with over 44 per cent of market share. However, the South Korean automaker, Hyundai Motor India, is the fastest growing big brand in the country as it had over 20 percent market share in the last financial year. Other than Maruti Suzuki India, Mahindra & Mahindra and Honda Cars India are growing rapidly, and thus are close rivals for Hyundai Motor India.
