Hyundai records zero domestic sales in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The nationwide lockdown was supposed to be lifted by May 4 but seeing the current scenario, the government has further extended it to May 17.
Hyundai managed to export 1,341 units in the month of April. According to the company, export shipping was conducted by following the guidelines set by the government and export regulating authorities. Hyundai Motor India is not the only manufacturer who has faced this situation. Maruti Suzuki also reported zero domestic sales in the month of April and could only export 632 units under the same rules.
In other COVID-19 news, Hyundai Motor India came forward to support the Governments of Delhi, Haryana, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra. The company distributed PPE kits, masks (3-Ply & N-95), sanitizers and dry rations worth more than Rs 9 crore. Also, Hyundai has donated incinerators to hospitals in Tamil Nadu for the safe disposal of all medical waste.
Commenting on the initiative to help the Government, SS Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. earlier stated, "Being a longstanding partner in India's growth over two decades, we stand united with the Government of India through these trying times and offer assurance of our utmost commitment. In the battle against COVID-19, our initiatives are aimed at lending support to our frontline champions, medical staff, support workers and those sections of society that have been severely impacted by this crisis."
This is not the first time Hyundai has come forward to lend a helping hand. The company recently donated Rs 7 Crore to the PM CARES Fund for the COVID-19 crisis, Rs 5 crore to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Relief Fund and handed over imported COVID-19 advanced diagnostic test kits worth Rs 4 crore. The company even partnered with Air Liquide Medical Systems recently to scale-up the production and supply of ventilators.
Thoughts About The Zero Domestic Sales In The Month Of April
Well due to the COVID-19 crisis the sales of many manufacturers for the month of April remain almost the same. We hope that after the lockdown, the sales number will gradually increase.
