Next year will see the Elite i20 realize its full year sales potential.

Commenting on the price hike, Mr. Rakesh Srivastava, Sr. Vice President, Sales and Marketing said that the price hike was due to “adverse market conditions, increase in input costs, high cost of imports due to higher rupee depreciation and high cost of sales.”

India’s second largest carmaker has quite a few products in its pipeline for 2015, apart from the scope of realizing the full potential of the strong selling Elite i20 next year. Hyundai’s Elite i20 has been performing strongly since launch and is currently the best selling model for the brand.
