I believe they want the Venue to be a global product, if true, strong sales could mean an increased potential for upgrades in some of the earlier model years. If not i'll be disappointed. It would be great for the Venues competitive edge.
In its first full month of sales, the Hyundai Venue compact crossover has managed to clock sales of 8,763 units which is just 108 unit shy of the Brezza’s tally. Though SUVs like Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300 managed to create a niche for themselves in the promising segment, none came this close to dethroning the popular Maruti SUV.
If the Hyundai Venue continue its strong run in the subsequent months, it has a very high chance of derailing Maruti’s segment leadership in one of the Indian auto market’s most promising sub-segments. The latest kid on the block is sitting on over 35,000 bookings with waiting period extending up to six months in certain cities. In comparison, the Maruti Brezza’s sales witnessed a YoY decline of 17% last month.
Thanks to the Venue’s strong sales performance in June 2019, Hyundai India managed to mitigate the general slow down in the market. The automaker ended last month with a sales decline of 7.3% in the domestic market and things could have been worse without its newest product.
That makes sense, any particular reason why you're going to wait?If a Venue PHEV happens I will not jump into owning one right away. 6+ months out, maybe.
That's fair, I've heard the Ioniq isn't the quickest car out there, but that could also come down to personal preference.I heard Hyundai PHEV's and EV's can be sluggish and that's often only discovered in reviews.
That's very true, I don't expect that kind of performance but I know people who think that every EV can perform like a Tesla.Or actual needs which for the average driver it meets. Just don't expect a Model 3 performance.
It looks like Hyundai is already starting that with a Veloster N electric race car.Who knows, maybe Hyundai's N Performance brand starts to include EV's and Hybrids?
If Hyundai wants to stay relevant, it will be necessary.
