Over 500,000 units of the locally manufactured Hyundai Solaris have been sold in Russia in 4 years and 6 months.

The car, manufactured at the South Korean company’s factory in St. Petersburg, is sold both in hatchback and sedan versions in the country. Prices for the four-door sedan starts at 495,000 rubles (INR 4.97 lakh) and for the hatchback at 485,000 (INR 4.87 lakh). Hyundai had produced 500,000 units of the Solaris in St. Petersburg by August 2013, about 30 months since production commenced, for Russia and exports.

After its launch in February 2011, the Russian model has got several updates and facelifts, the latest of which was early last year, and a motorshow premiere at the Moscow International Auto Salon 2014. While the interior in this update didn’t get any noteworthy changes, Hyundai concentrated more on external changes with new bumpers, lights and grille.
