Small car to cost approx INR 9.5 lakh due to high import duty
Hyundai will launch its new small car Eon in Nepal, in January 2012. Due to the steep import duties on CBU (Completely Built Unit) in Nepal, the small car is expected to be priced around INR Rs 9.5 lakh or 15 lakh Nepali Rupees. The car will be sold through Hyundai's Nepal distributor, Laxmi Intercontinental, and the entry-level model will be positioned below the Hyundai Santro Xing, as in the Indian market. Hyundai is expected to offer only three variants in Nepal: a base, middle and top variant instead of all six variants offered in India.
The Hyundai Eon will be the cheapest car in Nepal next to the Nano and the company is confident of strong sales in the coming months. We think that Hyundai will shortly offer this car to all of India’s neighboring countries like - Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Bangladesh etc, as the entire region has right-hand drive vehicles.
