‘EON’ – means eternity. The car will be manufactured in India at Hyundai Motor India’s manufacturing facility located at Sriperumbudur near Chennai.
The EON will bear Hyundai’s latest design philosophy of ‘Fluidic Sculpture’. EON has design elements and features that have been specifically developed for Indian conditions. The car is targeted at first time buyers who want to buy a spacious and stylish car that is high on fuel economy.
The car has been designed at Hyundai’s Namyang R&D centre located in the Gyeonggi Province in South Korea. HMIL’s advanced R&D facility in Hyderabad worked in coordination with Namyang R&D to develop the EON. There was a regular exchange of experts between the two centers. The Namyang R&D center is equipped with world class facilities in terms of design, power train, wind tunnel, crash and other driving test facilities. The aim was to develop an entry level car that is spacious and stylish, something that has never been offered in this segment before.
