Hyundai Motor India on Tuesday announced it has entered into a corporate partnership with ITC Agro Business Division (ABD) to strengthen its brand presence in rural markets. The carmaker will promote its model line-up on ITC’s extensive and vibrant Agro and rural platforms to enhance brand recall in rural pockets. Through the partnership, Hyundai will collaborate with Choupal Saagar and the e-Choupal platforms in rural hinterlands.

The Indian car market is booming with sales reaching giddy highs. According to data from Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA), car sales last month was up by 11 per cent vis-a-vis February of 2022 and an even more impressive 16 per cent when compared to the pre-pandemic month of February of 2020. But FADA also noted that sentiments have not quite picked up in rural markets. When it does, Hyundai appears determined to be in a position of formidable strength.
