Hyundai observes double-digit sales growth in 2021, expects growth to continue
Hyundai Motor India has reported a double-digit increase in the total wholesales in 2021 as compared to the year 2020. The company also expects the sales momentum to continue this year as well with the support of positive factors such as improvement in the availability of semiconductors.
Hyundai Motor India Director (Sales, Marketing and Service) Tarun Garg told PTI that the company is entering 2022 with cautious optimism. “There are more positives than negatives and we are looking to a better year with so much of the customer booking backlog. Besides, our product line-up is refreshed," he said. He also added that the sales of the CNG trim also continue to grow year on year.
