South Korean Carmaker, Hyundai Motor India has announced that the company has crossed the 80 lakh unit production milestone in the country. The company achieved this milestone after beginning of production of facelifted 2018 Creta. The company is the country’s second-largest automaker and has been present in India since 1998. To celebrate 20 years of presence in India, Hyundai will be launching a series of activities and campaigns to commemorate this.
As we has posted earlier on our Publication regarding the facelift of Hyundai Creta, it may be noted that again the biggest change in the front fascia of the 2018 Hyundai Creta facelift is wider hexagonal chrome grille that reaches to the corners of the headlamps. Note the new fog lamps with LED surrounds. The rear of the car gets new tail lamp detailing, a new dual-tone rear bumper with the aluminium finish inserts. In this time, the company has produced 53 lakh units for the domestic market, while the 27 lakh units have been exported globally.
