South Korea's Hyundai to launch more EVs in India

It will also grow its charging stations to 439 by 2027.
Kia will start producing small EVs in 2025 and develop EV charging infrastructure as well as double its sales network, aiming to boost its domestic market share to 10 per cent eventually, from 6.7 per cent currently, Hyundai Motor Group said in a statement. Hyundai has already laid out plans to invest $2.45 billion to beef up EV production in the country and is bullish on the local appetite for EVS.
"The country is becoming an increasingly important centre for electric vehicle production and sales," Hyundai said.
