Hyundai India is here to make commitments for the Indian market and this time it is big!
As we are moving forward, we are realizing the importance of the natural resources available on earth and now that we have already started shifting towards green technology, we are developing a new way of living life as well as driving cars.
India has a diversity of people and there are different people demanding different
needs, cars and with the increase in the use of people who can afford cars, there is
also an increase in the price of diesel/petrol. Electric cars have already started taking up the charge but there is a long way to and I am sure this shift is going to take time.
Just when we all were busy wondering how and when electric cars would come into existence especially in countries like India, Hyundai has been at the forefront of the electric mobility revolution in India, with the introduction of India’s 1st Electric SUV – KONA Electric in 2019.
Hyundai has always been delighting its customers with the most innovative and technologically advanced mobility solutions and it is back again with a boom.
