Good news for Hyundai lovers the waiting period for the diesel i20 has been reduced to one month and to about 2-3 months for the diesel Verna. Hyundai Motor India Pvt Ltd have announced that the company has enhanced the supply of it’s popular diesel i20 hatchback and Verna models starting this month, which will in-turn reduce the waiting period of these two models substantially. The waiting period for the diesel Hyundai Verna will drop from six months to about two to three months, while the waiting period for the Hyundai i20 hatchback will drop to about a month.
The total production of diesel variants of both the models has been bumped by up to 50 per cent from the existing 7,000 units per month to 10,500 units per month. The decision to ramp up the production of diesel cars follows the Union Budget 2012-13, which concluded last month that left the anticipated tax on diesel cars untouched.
The company has been able to enhance the supply of ramping up diesel engine imports from South Korea. “Our customers have shown great patience, they have waited for many months, we owe it to them to deliver our cars at the earlier.” Mr Arvind Saxena, director of marketing and sales, Hyundai Motor India Ltd said.
