Of the four women cricketers who are now brand ambassadors of Hyundai Motor India, Smriti Mandhana is the vice-captain of Indian Women’s Cricket Team. Jemima Rodrigues is the world’s No. 12 T20 batter while Taniya Bhatia is one of the five best breakout stars in women's cricket ranked by ICC as well as World’s No. 2 T20 Batter. Shafali Verma is the youngest cricketer to play all three cricket formats.

Hyundai has had a long standing association with sports in India and the company is also partnering with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as an associate sponsor for all international matches at the home grounds.

Separately, Hyundai India is looking at playing the electric game with far more gusto and has confirmed plans of driving in as many as six BEV (Battery Electric Vehicles) in the country by 2028. This will likely include the Ioniq 5 EV.
