The Korean company received an exceptional response from the Indian market. It even struggled to maintain pace with the high demand in the country. In August 2019, Puneet Anand, Group Head — Marketing, Hyundai Motor India, said, “We have received more than 300 bookings. Last month we did 88 wholesales. We are sold out for five months. It is a very niche product and we do not have too many deliveries from our parent company. That’s why we are now looking at augmenting our volumes.” 

Additionally, the company handled this situation in a professional and ethical manner. Hyundai produced more and hence now have the availability of the Hyundai Kona Electric.
