Hyundai Creta: Order backlog decreased, updated delivery schedule and new information

Hyundai India’s Creta continues to maintain its stronghold with a total of 65,000 pending orders this month. Ever since the launch of the Creta facelift in India in January, the midsize SUV’s popularity has soared to new heights. The demand for the Creta has been so high that there is currently a backlog of 33,000 units waiting to be delivered.

Key points about the Hyundai Creta:
1. Creta currently offers two petrol and one diesel engine option.
2. The waiting period for the Creta and the sporty Creta N Line is around 10 weeks.
3. Hyundai plans to launch the Creta EV by January 2025.

In June 2024, the pending orders for the Creta have decreased slightly from April, dropping from 35,000 to 33,000 units. Despite the decrease, the Creta still accounts for more than half of Hyundai’s total pending orders this month. The average monthly sales for the Creta stand at 15,000 units, with a significant increase in first-time buyers from 14% in 2021 to 28% in 2024.

The Hyundai Creta faces tough competition in the midsize SUV segment, rivaling popular models such as the Kia Seltos, Maruti Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, and Honda Elevate.

The Creta is priced between Rs 13.48 lakh to Rs 24.47 lakh (ex-showroom) and is available with three engine options: 115hp 1.5L NA petrol, 160hp 1.5L turbo-petrol, and 116hp 1.5L diesel.

Hyundai is gearing up to introduce the Creta EV and give the Alcazar a mid-life makeover. The Creta EV will compete with other electric SUVs like the Maruti eVX, Tata Curvv EV, and MG ZS EV. The Alcazar will receive updates later this year, including new designs, features, and ADAS, along with discounts of up to Rs 70,000.

With its impressive sales figures and exciting new developments in the pipeline, the Hyundai Creta continues to be a top contender in the competitive SUV market.
