The Exter was launched in July this year at a starting price of Rs 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
Hyundai has received over 75,000 bookings for the Exter. With waiting periods reaching up to 9 months, the carmaker has decided to ramp up its production.
According to Hyundai, the top-spec variants of the Exter are witnessing a higher demand. Initially, the carmaker was building 6,000 units per month and has now increased this number to 8,000 units.
Hyundai’s Chennai factory also serves export markets. Media reports suggest that the carmaker is now diverting some of the volumes meant for exports to cater to the domestic demand. Production capacity is likely to be increased further sometime next year.
The Exter was launched in July this year at a starting price of Rs 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom). It is available in 5 variants: EX, S, SX, SX(O) and SX(O) Connect.
