Commenting on the global success of Creta, Rakesh Srivastava, Sr. VP, Sales & Marketing, HMIL said, “The Hyundai CRETA launched in July as the perfect SUV is a trendsetter in the Indian market. CRETA heralded a new chapter in Hyundai’s success story across the world showcasing HMIL’s success of ‘Make in India’ manufacturing initiative. Now the CRETA goes global and we have received strong response from world markets. Our goal is to maximise our production to make 10,000 units of CRETA to meet the global customers’ demand while maintaining our leadership position in the domestic market. With another success story of CRETA, Hyundai reassures its commitment to the Indian market and promises to develop truly world class products.”
Hyundai is a new age brand and under the modern premium brand direction has set benchmarks in the SUV segment. With Creta, HMIL has strengthened its position in the SUV segment in India and has demonstrated excellence of ‘Made in India’ products as per global standards.
The Creta has received an overwhelming response in the Indian market and also in global markets such as Latin America (Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru & Panama), Middle East (Oman, UAE, Saudi) and Africa (Egypt, Morocco & Nigeria). Hyundai will continue to maintain its leadership position in the export market with the strong sales of Creta and will export to new markets soon.
The Creta is available in three engine options – 1.6 Gamma Dual VTVT, 1.6 U2 CRDi VGT, 1.4 U2 CRDi – and each has been tuned for best performance and fuel efficiency.
Based on Hyundai Motor’s evolved Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 Design philosophy, Creta demonstrates all the essential attributes of dynamism, comfort, safety and style making it a revolutionary product in the Indian car market.
