Commenting on the company’s sales, Rakesh Srivastava, Vice President (Sales and Marketing, Hyundai India) said, “The market was subdued on account of macro-economic factors. For Hyundai the year has started on a positive note with growth in its domestic and export sales. The change in price differential between petrol and diesel prices has increased interest in petrol cars, reflecting in the waiting period of models like Eon, i20 and Verna petrol. Marketing initiatives in the rural markets are bringing volume growth.”
