SS Kim, MD & CEO at HMIL, states that Hyundai has always believed in customer support and is now delivering on community support. "In these challenging times, our Global Vision – ‘Progress for Humanity’, holds us firmly rooted to core values of community service," he said. "Hyundai is committed to support India in this fight against the Covid-19 crisis and we are advancing our CSR initiatives that are aimed at enhancing support and care of society and communities."

Hyundai has also reached out to its customers and has extended warranties which were due to expire in the period of India's 21-day national lockdown.

Hyundai is not the only automaker to have taken CSR initiatives and extended warranties. Companies like Maruti Suzuki, Tata Motors, Mercedes, Skoda Auto Volswagen, among others, are not just helping in monetary terms but also providing vital aid to healthcare workers in the frontline of the battle against coronavirus.
