The covid-19 scare has grappled the entire society. The number of people affected and casualties have been on the rise in the country. In these testing times, many industrialists and companies have come forward to lend a helping hand to the people amidst this worldwide crisis. Hyundai Motor India has been a part of the group and among other initiatives, has handed over COVID-19 Advanced Diagnostic Testing Kits to Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). The globally proven Diagnostic Kits worth Rs 4 Crore have been imported from South Korea and offer high levels of accuracy, catering to the testing requirements of over 25,000 individuals. These Diagnostic Kits are also being exported to the USA, Europe and other countries.
As part of its road map of giving back to society, Hyundai has developed a series of initiatives to assist the Government in the battle against COVID-19. These range of initiatives include:
- Donation of Rs 5 Crore to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Relief Fund
- Augment the supply of ventilators and other respiratory aids such as the in-house developed Ambu Bag Actuator
- Distribution of PPEs, masks and other safety kits

HMI will offer extended support of 2 months to those customers who were unable to avail vehicle’s Warranty/Extended Warranty/Free Service due to Health Emergency or Dealership shutdown in affected cities.
