Hyundai Motors has announced that the company has registered 12,583 units of sales in the Indian market during the month of May 2020. Out of the total sales registered 6,883 units came from the domestic market while the remaining 5,700 were from exports.

The South Korean brand is the second-largest car manufacturer in the Indian market. The company resumed operations in mid-May, after having been shut down for more than a month due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hyundai had previously reported that they had registered over 5000 bookings and over 15,000 enquiries within the first two days of restarting sales and service operations in the country. Hyundai has reopened most of its dealerships across India, apart from those in the containment zone.

All dealerships are following safety and social distancing guidelines and protocols set by both the government and the brand themselves. This is to ensure the safety of both the workforce and the visiting customers to the dealerships.

Hyundai also stated that the sales during the previous month were mostly led by the latest-generation Creta, the Venue and the Grand i10 NIOS; all of which have been received extremely well in their respective segments.

Hyundai even launched the Verna facelift in the Indian market recently. The new Hyundai Verna comes with a major update to its design, especially at the front. Positioned in the executive sedan segment, the new Hyundai Verna is a strong competitor among its rivals, which includes the recently updated Volkswagen Vento, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the upcoming Honda City.

Tarun Garg, Director (Sales, Marketing & Service), Hyundai Motor India Limited said,

"In an extremely challenging market environment, HMIL made a humble beginning towards normalcy by registering cumulative sales of 12,583 for the month of May 2020. This performance was made possible on account of strong customer interest and demand-pull generated by trendsetter brands like the all-new Creta, new Verna, Venue, Elite i20 and Grand i10 NIOS."

"Drawing strength from Hyundai's vision of 'Progress for Humanity', we have prepared ourselves to welcome our customers back in this 'New Normal' while ensuring adherence to safety guidelines at our showrooms and workshops and expedite economic recovery."
