Hyundai Motor India Ltd. (HMIL) will showcase 'global products' at the Auto Expo 2016, scheduled to take place in the first week of February 2016. Speaking to the Hindu BusinessLine, Bo Shin Seo, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, HMIL, said that these products will be "less [of] India-specific".

He added that HMIL will have a big line-up of products at the show, which will also showcase the design and technology of the brand. He stated that the company was undecided on showcasing the future MPV at the biennial event.

At the global scale, Hyundai has products such as the three-door i20, the Veloster, the i30 range, the all-new Sonata and the premium Genesis which are unavailable to Indian buyers. The South Korean manufacturer also has the new Tucson, which was revealed this year at the Geneva Motor Show.
