After launching the much awaited Eon in India, Hyundai is all set to introduce its small car across the border at Nepal. The car is expected to hit the Nepalese street by January 2012. Laxmi Intercontinental, the company’s local dealer at Nepal will look after the retailing of the brand new Alto-competitore from the house of Hyundai.
According to Mr. Abhishekh Dhungana, Marketing Officer of Laxmi Intercontinental, the company is primarily targeting entry level customers who are in search of their first car. The car will bear a price tag of NPR 1.5 million. Hyundai sells its Santro too in Nepal at a cost of NPR 1.7 million.
However, the firm has not yet revealed how many variants are set to be launched in Nepal. Mr. Abhishekh predicts that the firm will launch 3 out of the 7 variants that are launched in India and is very much confident about healthy sales figures due to the fact that no other car offers features and luxuries like an MP3 player with USB, keyless entry, airbags and air-conditioning, power steering with tile function and power windows at a similar price.
