Hyundai Eon LPG production underway
Hyundai Motor India has started production of the LPG version of its recently launched Eon hatchback. The cleaner and greener Eon is expected to be unveiled at the Auto Expo, with a likely launch in the following months.
The car will now get a factory-fitted LPG kit in addition to its 32-litre petrol tank. As with the recent i10 Blue Drive, the Eon’s LPG kit is likely to be ARAI-certified and impact resistant as well.
In another development, Hyundai has also commenced exports of the petrol Eon from its Chennai plant, starting December 2011. The first export market for the made-in-India Eon is Algeria.
