While this number is 6% below January 2023’s 50,106 units, it has enabled the Chennai-based carmaker to drive past the half-a-million sales milestone in the first 11 months of FY2023.

The Creta midsize SUV, the second best-selling utility vehicle in India, remains the company’s best-selling product and is estimated to have sold over 140,000 units in the first 11 months of the ongoing fiscal year.

According to Tarun Garg, Chief Operating Officer, Hyundai Motor India, “The newly launched Hyundai Ioniq 5, Tucson, Grand i10 Nios and Aura continue to create excitement in the Indian market space and receive tremendous customer response.
