The company has not disclosed plans for the export markets though sources have told that overseas shipments could be underway in 2012.

Coming back to the numbers, Hyundai is not ruling out LPG and CNG variants but says there are no plans for a diesel engine. Following the Eon LPG, the i10 LPG could be introduced.

The Eon is an excellent alternative to the Santro and Alto as it scores better in style, fuel economy and features. Over the next couple of years, Hyundai should gift the Eon with a larger motor (1.0L 3cyl Kappa engine from the export-spec i10). The Santro's presence must not stop Hyundai from upgrading the Eon.
