Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) and Laxmi Group have announced the commencement of local assembly for the Hyundai Venue in Nepal, marking a significant milestone as Nepal's first four wheeler assembly plant. The inauguration of this plant took place on May 10, 2024, in Nepal, with the Hon’ble Prime Minister of Nepal, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, and Tae-Young Park, the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea, in attendance.

This initiative comes after Hulas Motors, the previous vehicle manufacturer in Nepal, ceased operations due to pollution concerns. Although there have been several two-wheeler assembly plants established since then, Hyundai's assembly plant is the first for four-wheelers in the country. Unsoo Kim, MD & CEO of Hyundai Motor India, announced that the plant has an annual assembly capacity of 5,000 units, with the Hyundai Venue being the first model to be locally assembled.
