Hyundai says it has postponed its plan to export Creta from India by a few months as it strives to meet stronger than expected local demand.

Earlier, the company had planned to begin exports from September. This has been deferred to November-December, ET reported.

The automaker has received bookings for 32,000 Cretas. It plans to increase the model’s production to 7,000 units per month in order to bring down the waiting period, which ranges from three to nine months depending on location and variant.

Hyundai Motor India senior vice-president, sales and marketing Rakesh Srivastava said, “We are delighted. We are increasing production to reduce waiting period.”
