In the corresponding month last year, the figure stood at 50,313 units. On a Year-over-Year basis, it is a decline of 34.2 per cent.

Talking of exports, Hyundai shipped a total of 12,704 units in September this year, whereas the carmaker exported 9,600 vehicles in September 2020. Interestingly, it makes for positive YoY growth of 32.3 per cent. In total, the brand dispatched 45,791 units from its Chennai-based manufacturing unit. Sadly, the number in September last year was recorded at 59,913 units. Resultantly, it is a YoY decline of 23.6 per cent when compared to the total units sold in the domestic and export markets in September last year.
