We are optimistic about traction building from metro cities,” Brijesh Gubbi Suresh, Group Head and Assistant Vice President, New Business Strategy, HMIL, said.

“Aligned with our Business Slogan ‘Future Ready’, we are introducing the next generation of online car buying with ‘Click to Buy’ that enriches customer experience with first-in-industry features to offer a seamless and convenient online purchase journey. With the entire automotive ecosystem evolving around us, digital car buying platforms such as ‘Click to Buy’ will become the new normal,” WS Oh, Executive Director – Corporate Planning, HMIL, said.

Since the launch of ‘Click to Buy’), the company has received over seven lakh visitors on the platform and have recorded over 15,000 registrations in two months,” he added.

All Hyundai models, including all new Creta and new Verna, are available on Click to Buy website and this would act as an additional sales channel for over 600 Hyundai dealerships, the company said.
