Hyundai moved into this larger, more posh new office earlier in April of this year, which was a delayed start due to intermittent construction inactivity due to Covid last year. Its former head office was located in Jasola, New Delhi, which is now expected to be retained as a central regional office.

The new building stands along the Gurgaon-Jaipur Highway (NH-8), next to DLF’s World Tech Park.

The company has acquired two plots in the area, with the office built on a 3-acre lot, while another adjacent building is expected to be built by 2023 and also house a branded experience center. HMI has planned a total investment of around Rs 2,000 crore, including the two buildings.

In addition to R&D operations, for which it has an R&D standard in Hyderabad, the company has transferred all of its key functions, including sales, marketing, after-sales, finance and human resources, to this new location.

Echoing his commitment to the Indian market, Kim added, “Hyundai Motor India will work hand in hand with the government to ensure the prosperity of the Indian people.
