Hyundai has officially revealed that the new Santro has received over 23,500 pre-bookings in just 13 days. The company had started taking pre-orders for the tall-boy hatchback online on the 10th of October, 2018. Thanks to the overwhelming response, Hyundai Santro commands a waiting period of around 4 months in certain cities.
The Korean giant is aiming to produce around 10,000 units of the new Santro per month. However, production of the car has already been started. In fact, the small car has already been dispatched to dealerships. This suggests that the dealerships have decent stock to meet the high demand. However, the booking numbers are increasing at a rapid pace and Hyundai will need to further increase the production to meet the rising demand. Also See – Hyundai Santro Vs Tata Tiago
