In what is being regarded as a coup of sorts, Hyundai has already managed a massive 54000 bookings for the Creta in India, following a launch just this July.
With more than 80 per cent of bookings for the diesel variant of the car, the Creta has clearly been hitting the right notes with the Indian public. There were quite a few bookings even before the launch of the car and with 6783 units being sold in July as well as 7473 units being sold in August, customers are queuing up to get a car that can fulfil their crossover needs.
Hyundai has responded to this massive rise in bookings with ramping up the production. The company has moved from producing 5000 units per month to 6500 units each month to meet the rising demands and is looking to deliver the car to customers as soon as possible. With the waiting period having increased to about six to eight months and customers still lining up to buy the car, it shows the popularity Hyundai has managed to generate with this offering.
By no means though is this the first taste Hyundai has had of immediate market success. Hyundai had done similarly well with the launch of the Xcent, Grand i10 as well as the Elite i20 and has firmly established itself as a leader among most car makers in India today with a portfolio that is one of the best selling in the country.
