Hyundai has since inception focussed on 'Make in India' products, made for the world," Y.K. Koo, managing director, was quoted as saying in the statement issued by Hyundai Motor India."Hyundai is the largest exporter and largest premium car manufacturer in India, catering to the growing needs and demands of the aspirational Indian customer.

Hyundai has witnessed success as the fastest growing sales milestone and we assure our commitment to the Indian car market," he added.Nineteen years ago when most multinational car companies were focussing on the mid-segment car market, Hyundai took on market leader Maruti Suzuki with its small car Santro.Santro was India's first "tall boy" design car that rode into the new car buyers' market.

The South Korean company also made India its major car sourcing point for its global market.For quite sometime, nearly 50 percent of the production from the Indian plant located near here was shipped out.The firm currently exports to around 85 countries across Africa, Middle East, Latin America, Australia and the Asia Pacific.
