New Delhi : Hyundai Motor India Thursday unveiled its concept multipurpose vehicle (MPV) — Hexa Space — at the 11th edition of Auto Expo here and said it expects single-digit growth in the Indian car industry in 2012.
“We are showing our new concept MPV Hexa Space for the first time. It is too early to say when it could come in the market but it will take three to four years,” Arvind Saxena, director (sales and marketing), Hyundai Motor India (HMIL), told reporters.
