Presently, the South-Korean automaker has four vehicles in its SUV portfolio namely Venue, Creta, Tucson and Kona Electric.

Hyundai has sold 1 Million locally made SUVs cumulatively across domestic and export markets with the Creta spearheading the line-up. Being firstly launched six years back in 2015, the Creta is the most successful Hyundai SUV ever with domestic sales of more than 5.9 Lakh units. In fact, the company has exported a whooping 2.2 Lakh units of the SUV to various global markets.

Commenting on the landmark achievement, Mr. Tarun Garg, Director (Sales, Marketing & Service), Hyundai Motor India Ltd., said, “We are extremely grateful for the love and trust our customers have presented in Hyundai branded SUVs. As frontrunners in the introduction of revolutionary technologies, we continue to establish new milestones and redefine benchmarks across segments. With over 1 Million cumulative SUV sales in domestic and export markets, we have reiterated the promise of Make-in-India over nearly two and a half decades of our presence in India. This achievement also epitomises our manufacturing excellence and the unconditional admiration for Hyundai brand in India. Our journey towards SUV leadership was initiated by brands such as TUCSON, SANTA FE and TERRACAN. Now we have witnessed exponential growth in the segment with the launch of contemporary brands like CRETA and VENUE that have quickly gone on to become well established household names.
