Hyundai Motor India (HMIL) on Tuesday said it has received a record initial export order of 10,501 units for the Next Gen Verna from the West Asian market.

The Next Gen Verna will be known as the Next Gen Accent in the West Asian markets, the company said.

“This is the single largest order for the Next Gen Verna that the company has received since inception and is a big jump compared to the earlier generations of the Verna and Accent,” it said.

HMIL had invited 33 distributors from West Asia (including Saudi Arabia, Oman and the UAE) and other Asian countries (including Vietnam, the Philippines and Sri Lanka) to the Chennai-based production facility on September 21.

They were given a detailed plant tour, a presentation on the product, its quality parameters and the plant capabilities, which finally culminated in an exclusive drive experience of the Next Gen Verna.

Commenting on the record achievement Y. K. Koo, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, HMIL, said, “The Next Gen Verna has received an overwhelming response from domestic and export markets. It is in perfect harmony with Hyundai’s commitment of ‘Make in India, for the world’ and also is in line with the Indian government’s ‘Make in India’ vision.”

The Next Gen Verna will also be exported to South Africa, other Gulf and Asian countries from the beginning of 2018 and will be a shining star in the Hyundai product portfolio across the globe, he said.

The Next Gen Verna has received more than 18,600 bookings and more than 1.43 lakh enquiries in just two months since its launch in India on August 22. These additional new orders will be shipped in December, along with the delivery of 20,000 units by end-December in the domestic market at a special introductory price, as committed during the product launch, the company added.
