Hyundai rolls out 3 Millionth Car in India

Exactly 8 months after the roll-out of it's 2.5 millionth car out of the Indian operations, Hyundai Motor India today celebrated the Roll-Out of it's 3 Millionth Car from Indian soil. Being Hyundai India's best seller by volume both in domestic and export markets, a decorated red i10 deservedly did the honors for the company in the presence of the top management officials. This day (04-Aug-2010) will go down as a red letter day in the company's history as Hyundai is only the second automobile manufacturer in the country after Maruti-Suzuki to achieve this milestone and also did so in a record time of less than 12 years.

Ever since Hyundai started operations in India in 1996 by setting up it's plant in a record time of just 17 months, it has always been a trend-setter in the country. Starting from the Santro in 1998, Hyundai continued it's successful onslaught in India with the Accent and Sonata in 1999 and 2001 respectively. This was followed by Terracan, Getz, Elantra and Tucson, all of which turned out to be less successful. Hyundai came back with a bang with the i10 in 2007, which garnered an entire gamut of awards and smashed all sales records. This was followed in 2008 by the hugely successful i20 model. Going forward, Hyundai is expected to launch the Santa Fe before the end of this year to try it's luck again in the SUV segment.

Here's wishing the company all success in it's future endeavors and to cross many more milestones.
