Based on the theme ‘Mobility for All’, the Hyundai Motor India Pavilion in Hall No. 6, Pragati Maidan, presented the company’s vision for India and highlighted its commitment to India.
Commenting on Hyundai Motor India’s participation at Bharat Global Mobility Expo 2024, Puneet Anand, AVP and Vertical Head, Corporate Affairs, Hyundai Motor India, said, “We would like to congratulate the Government of India and Ministry of Commerce & Industries for envisioning this unique Bharat Global Mobility Expo 2024.
“It gave us an opportunity to showcase our products & technologies to the audience. As Hyundai Motor India, we take pride in our journey of localization, epitomising the ‘Made in India, for the World’ spirit.

Hyundai’s journey in India is more than just automobiles; it’s a narrative of progress, community development, and a relentless pursuit of innovation, reflecting our enduring commitment to India’s future.”
Localisation has been pivotal in Hyundai Motor India’s journey since its inception. As the foremost exporter of ‘Made in India’ cars globally, Hyundai’s specialised localisation zone exemplifies the extensive utilization of parts from Indian manufacturers, showcasing the nation’s engineering prowess.
In its ongoing commitment to enhancing localisation, Hyundai has achieved 100 per cent localisation in key components such as tires, panoramic sunroof, alloy wheel, and more.
The company is also working towards enhancing localisation ratio for manufacturing vehicles in India, including key car components, ECM-based Inside Rear View Monitor (IRVM), higher grade AGM technology battery, and a wide range of other components.
Reinforcing its commitment towards localisation, a dedicated team has been established to intensify its efforts, particularly for high-volume models, aligning with the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative.
The zone not only highlights Hyundai’s advanced manufacturing facility in Sriperumbudur, but also showcases the R&D facility in Hyderabad, corporate office in Gurugram, and the recently acquired Maharashtra facility, firmly establishing Hyundai’s presence on the Indian map.
The comprehensive zone is complemented by a film illustrating Hyundai’s manufacturing excellence, emphasising the company’s dedication to delivering the highest quality vehicles globally.
Since its inception in 1996, Hyundai Motor India has consistently demonstrated a commitment to India, becoming the first OEM to export ‘Made in India’ vehicles worldwide and holding the position of the largest passenger vehicle exporter from India.
