Right now, the carmaker is aiming to breach the 10 million units mark by early 2021. And the expansion of its production capacity is one of the key measures in achieving that target. In addition to that, the company also mentioned that keeping up with the Government's vision to bring electric vehicles in India, Hyundai's smart plant is now gearing up to produce electric vehicles as well, and its first electric SUV, most likely the Kona Electric, will come by 2020.
