Hyundai Motor India (HMIL) rolled out the 5 millionth car from its Chennai plant on 17 October. HMIL achieved this feat in 15 years after launching Santro, which rolled out from the plant in September 1998. Hyundai’s Chennai plant has capacity to manufacture 6.8 lakh cars annually. It exported 38 per cent out of the 5 million it manufactured.
Commenting on the occasion, B S Seo, MD and CEO, HMIL, said, “The 5 million car roll-out is an important milestone and a symbol of Hyundai’s long-term commitment to the Indian market. As we reach this significant landmark, I would thank our valuable customers, founding partners, employees, dealers and suppliers for their support and commitment.”
