Key Highlights at Hyundai Motor India Pavilion: 

Localization has been pivotal in Hyundai Motor India's journey since its inception. As the foremost exporter of "Made in India" cars globally, Hyundai's specialized localization zone exemplifies the extensive utilization of parts from Indian manufacturers, showcasing the nation's engineering prowess. In its ongoing commitment to enhancing localization, Hyundai has achieved 100% localization in key components such as tyres, panoramic sunroof, alloy wheels, and more. The company is also working towards enhancing the localization ratio for manufacturing vehicles in India, including key car components, ECM-based Inside Rear View Monitor (IRVM), higher grade AGM technology batteries, and a wide range of other components. Reinforcing its commitment towards localization, a dedicated team has been established to intensify its efforts, particularly for high-volume models, aligning with the government's "Make in India" initiative. The zone not only highlights Hyundai's advanced manufacturing facility in Sriperumbudur but also showcases the R&D facility in Hyderabad, the corporate office in Gurugram, and the recently acquired Maharashtra facility, firmly establishing Hyundai's presence on the Indian map. The comprehensive zone is complemented by a film illustrating Hyundai's manufacturing excellence, emphasizing the company's dedication to delivering the highest quality vehicles globally. 

Since its inception in 1996, Hyundai Motor India has consistently demonstrated a commitment to India, becoming the first OEM to export "Made in India" vehicles worldwide and holding the position of the largest passenger vehicle exporter from India. Hyundai has pioneered the Indian automobile industry, introducing global technologies and features, and standardizing 6 airbags and 3-point seatbelts across its entire range. 

Aligned with Hyundai's global CSR guideline of 'CONTINUE,' the Hyundai Motor India Foundation, initiated in 2006, has undertaken various social initiatives, including Art for Hope, Telemedicine clinics, Sports labs, Dhyan-Do, Drive for Progress, BeTheBetterGuy, and more, focusing on community development, healthcare, education, vocational training, and promoting safe mobility practices.

In 2024, the company declared an additional commitment of INR 6,180 Crore, including INR 180 crore towards 'Hydrogen Valley Innovation Hub' in collaboration with IIT Madras. Additionally, the Company has signed an MoU with the State of Maharashtra for a long-term investment of INR 6,000 Crore for infrastructure upgradation and capacity expansion for its 1 million capacity goal.
