Hyundai Motors maintains its 2nd largest car manufacturers in the Indian market with sales reaching up to 59,203 units for April 2021, which is a sum of domestic units sold which stands at 49,002 units combined with the total units exported by the company stands at 10,201 units for April 2021. Despite the great sale numbers, Hyundai doesn’t come even halfway close to the number 1 position holder Maruti Suzuki which sold a total of 1,59,691 units.
The YoY growth for the month of April can not be compared to the previous year as that time was the year’s 0 sale month where all the industries came to a halt due to the COVID19 pandemic, and yet again the virus has struck back this country and this time with even greater force, and due to this companies have now stopped their productions are now only supplying industrial oxygen converted to medical oxygen to wherever there is need. Although, this is a great cause, but due to this production halt the car makers are again heading to the same situation as of last years after a great recovery.
Hyundai has even postponed the launch of its new 7/6-seater car Hyundai Alcazar which was meant to be launched at the end of April 2021, but due to the ongoing conditions, will not be launching sometime in May 2021.
The new Alcazar will be comparatively different from its 5-seater cousin Hyundai Creta and will be offered with 2 engine options – first being the 2.0-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine producing a max power output of 159 PS and second being a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine producing an optimum power of 115 PS, and both these variants will be available in manual as well as automatic transmission gearbox.
