“Current automobile market is very much tough, so we had many kinds of feasibility studies, and decision about negative days was also very much difficult. But I think that we should provide good product in any case, despite the entire economic situation. So the reason we decided to have an inauguration today,” said H.S Lheeh, MD, Hyundai Motors India Ltd.
