Hyundai’s “Tech­nolo­gies of To­mor­row”

Car India - - BULLETIN -

Hyundai Mo­tor In­dia have huge am­bi­tions for the very near fu­ture, most of which are well-ful­filled al­ready thanks to their state-ofthe-art man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity in Chen­nai. The Smart Plant, spread over 535 acres in Sripe­rum­budur, has been op­ti­mized over the years with retro­fit LED light­ing, four ponds for rain­wa­ter har­vest­ing, and is al­most run­ning at its full pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity of 7.13 lakh units. And it shows: Hyundai In­dia rolled out their eight mil­lionth car in a record time of 19 years and nine months. This, too, is set to see an ex­pan­sion to 7.5 lakh units.

The tar­get is to “make in In­dia for the world” and roll out 10 mil­lion (one crore) cars in the first half of 2021. The six pil­lars un­der­lin­ing their ef­fort to achieve this aim are safety, qual­ity, clean­li­ness, morale, and, of course, cost and weight re­duc­tion. The Smart Plant is gearing up to pro­duce elec­tric ve­hi­cles and is al­ready equipped to meet norms for BS-VI emis­sion class as well as car and pedes­trian safety. Airbags and ABS will be of­fered as stan­dard in all mod­els. Eight new mod­els will be launched in the next two years, in­clud­ing the new Kona, which is ex­pected to ar­rive as early as next year.
