Hyundai has inaugurated its Global Quality and Technical Centre at Haryana, which will house the India Quality Centre (INQC), a first for India.
Hyundai intends to give a boost to global quality and new product development in the backdrop of its plans to launch eight new products in India by 2021. The carmaker recently inaugurated its Global Quality and Technical Centre at Haryana. This centre will be a home to the India Quality Centre (INQC) which will also house the sixth skill development and service expertise centre in India.
The India Quality Centre will play a significant role in development of new products for the Asia-Pacific markets. The Centre shall also develop new technology products ranging from mild to full hybrid, Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) and a turbocharged petrol engine that will power its new models. Hyundai has to achieve high levels of localisation for making these initiatives cost-effective considering the price-conscious Indian buyer, hence comes the decision of locating the Quality Centre in India.
The R&D centre at Hyderabad and the Global R&D centre at South Korea will also contribute to the India Quality Centre in its operations, as all the talent is spread out. Hyundai also confirms, any technology will not be developed by any one centre and this too shall be an integration between the R&D centre at Hyderabad and the Global R&D centre at South Korea.
To ensure everything happens as planned, Hyundai has sent a bunch of Korean vendors to assist the Indian engineers working at the India Quality Centre in analysis, product development, and also understanding Indian consumers. Hyundai also reveals that the Quality Centre has attracted an investment of Rs. 30 crores.
