Hyundai To Bring 6 SUVs To India In The Next 24 Months

South Korean carmaker Hyundai is all set to unveil the all-new connected Venue SUV later this month. Now, a new report by ET Auto has stated that after the carmaker launches the Hyundai Venue in India, it will bring in five more utility vehicles into the sub-continent.

The Hyundai Venue will be India's first-ever connected SUV to be launched in India. Hyundai will unveil the Venue simultaneously in India and at the 2019 New York Auto Show on the 17th of April. The next month on the 23rd of May, Hyundai will launch the all-new Venue and reveal the prices of the Venue connected SUV that will rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the newly launched Mahindra XUV300.

ET Auto's article states that Hyundai will launch 5 more utility vehicles in the 24 months after the launch of the Venue in India. The first of these utility vehicles will be the Hyundai Kona electric SUV that is expected to arrive in India before the festive period in the second half of the year. The Kona will draw power from a single electric motor that will crank out either 134 or 201bhp along with 395Nm of torque. The battery pack will  be offered in two sizes —39.2 or 64kWh — which offer ranges of 300 and 415 kilometres respectively.

The Kona will not be the only SUV to follow the Venue into India this year. Expected to arrive next is the next-gen Hyundai Creta. The all-new Hyundai Creta is expected to arrive only after the launch of the Hyundai i20 Cross hatch (Active). Hyundai is also working on a 7-seater version of the Creta though that SUV is expected to arrive a bit after the next-gen SUV enters India sometime next year.

Among the other SUVs on the cards for India from Hyundai is the next-generation Santa Fe. Hyundai is expected to launch the next-gen Tucson in both five and seven seater guises onto the roads of India. The last of the SUVs slated for India is expected to be a micro SUV that will sit under the Venue in the Hyundai lineup. Not much is known about this SUV as of now.
