  1. Hyundai’s Santa Fe has been launched on 13.10.2010 in Jodhpur at prices from 20.95 to 22.95 lakhs, as it is being imported as CBUs from Hyundai’s factories in South Korea.

    Hyundai Motor India hopes to sell 100-150 units this year, with bookings opening from 18.10.2010.

    Well, good luck to Hyundai with the Santa Fe !

    Unless Hyundai start assembling the Santa Fe in India, their dream of selling 600-800 units a year in the coming years will vanish like it did with the Terracan & Tucson.

    What needs to be drummed into the thick heads of these multinationals is that there is a huge untapped market for compact SUVs in India, which can be easily captured with the right pricing for these SUVs assembled locally.

    Once this segment catches on in India, even the current SUV market leader, Toyota will be forced to reduce the high price of their locally assembled bestseller – Fortuner and/or even launch its cheaper 2 wheel drive version in India, like Ford did recently with their Endeavour.
