Even as the Indian car industry is going through a phase of slowdown, it seemingly hasn’t put the brakes on the slew of new launches slated to happen in the next couple of months. We now have word coming straight out of the Hyundai factory grapevine in Chennai, that the Hyundai H800 is being readied up for a launch as early as September, this year.
The factory floor seems to be reverberating with the buzz surrounding the Hyundai H800′s launch, which is touted to become the best selling Hyundai due to the combination of a low price and Hyundai’s brand value in India. The Hyundai H800 is a small car that will rival the likes of the Maruti Alto and the Chevrolet Spark and is all set to be Hyundai’s least priced car in the Indian market.
The Hyundai H800 will arrive with a three pot petrol engine displacing around 800cc. The engine is expected to be a class leader both in terms of performance as well as fuel economy. As of now, the Hyundai H800 is expected to arrive only in petrol guise to India with no plans of a diesel engined variant yet. The car will also feature the new “Fluidic” design from Hyundai which is said to be the new design philosophy that all future Hyundai cars are set to arrive with.
So, we expect the Hyundai H800 Hatchback to be a good looking car, a welcome respite from the Ugly Hyundais of yore. The price of the Hyundai H800 Small Car will be under 3 Lakh Rupees. With the Hyundai H800, Hyundai India is also trying to make inroads into the rural Indian car market, with an aggressive dealer expansion plan that will focus on selling low cost cars like the Hyundai H800.
