According to company officials, the increase in output will come about during this month. Previously, the company has been producing around 7,200 units of the model, but decided to increase it in the wake of strong demand with waiting period exceeding over 3-4 months depending on variants. The model is available in three engine options of 1.6-litre and 1.4-litre in diesel, and 1.6-litre in petrol.

HMIL said the Creta has received over 70,000 bookings and 3,40,000 enquiries in India and over 15,770 orders globally since its launch in July this year. The model has received an overwhelming response in global markets such as Latin America (Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru and Panama), the Middle-East (Oman, the UAE, Saudi) and Africa (Egypt, Morocco and Nigeria), it added. "Hyundai will continue to maintain its leadership position in the export market with the strong sales of Creta and export to new markets soon," the company added.
