The company sold 43,316 units in the year-ago period. In the domestic market, the company’s sales increased by 11.86 per cent to 33,900 units from 30,306 units in the same month last year, Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) said in a statement.

Exports of the company went up by 22.99 per cent to 16,001 units during the month under review from 13,010 units in the year-ago period, the statement said.

“The year seems to have started on a positive note, domestic sales are showing some buoyancy. But we will have to cautiously watch how this momentum picks up in the months ahead,” HMIL Director (Marketing and Sales) Arvind Saxena said.

In the A2 segment (Eon, Santro, i10 and i20), the company sold 44,960 units, while in the A3 segment (Accent and Verna), sales stood at 4,797 units.
