Hyundai Motor plans to introduce commercial vehicles in India.

It already makes and sells compact cars in the country and now is planning high-end and premium trucks.

Commercial vehicle marketing executive JD Lee told Press Trust of India (PTI): "There are lots of possibilities to launch commercial vehicles in India...we are currently studying the Indian market... So, we are planning."

Lee added: "We are trying to launch high-end and premium trucks... As far as the models that we have, I think it is not a problem. We have many models all over the world."

Lee said it took time for Hyundai to enter the Indian CV market as low-cost vehicles used to be most attractive there but that is changing.

"Premium model truck is attractive [now] for the Indian market but we think bus is also profitable."

Hyundai had not yet decided which models to introduce.
