A Hyundai India spokesperson told Republic Business that the car manufacturing unit acquired last year by Hyundai from General Motors (GM) in Maharashtra’s Talegaon would be made functional during the calendar year 2025.

The spokesperson did not comment on the exact number of production enhancements expected from the soon-to-be-operational Talegaon plant but added that work was in full progress at the facility, which includes setting up state-of-the-art machinery there.


“Hyundai continues its focus on investing in India. There has been a substantial increase in our volumes and network in India’s fast-growing automobile market,” said the spokesperson.

Betting big on India 

Notably, Hyundai in India registered domestic sales of over 6.14 lakh units in FY 2023-24 and saw exports of over 1.63 lakh units during this period, said the spokesperson. Hyundai’s production since its inception in India has touched 777876. The automaker had touched the 10 million production milestone two years back.


Commenting on Hyundai’s outlook for FY25, the Hyundai spokesperson said even as the ongoing year will see general elections in India, hinting at the cautious approach most manufacturers, especially automakers are expected to adopt while setting production and sales targets.

“We have been in constant touch with the Government of Maharashtra which has been quite supportive. Stepping into the auto hub of Maharashtra is encouraging for us and helps us explore an altogether new manufacturing geography,” added the spokesperson.
