Hyundai Motors India Limited is planning to introduce its recently launched i20 in diesel version by end of this year. Hyundai i20 currently comes in only petrol version, a 1.2 litre kappa engine, same as the one seen under the hood of its smaller sibling, being the sole powerhouse. Hyundai i20 sales have caught up India, and the Hyundai has increased the number of staff to cope with it.
Hyundai Motors is already selling the i20 with 1.4 liter and 1.6 liter diesel engines in International market. Bringing the Hyundai i20 with a 1.4 liter diesel engine will qualify the company for the small car excise norms.
