Hyundai Palisade launch under assessment.
Hyundai is evaluating the launch of the right-hand drive Hyundai Palisade in India. The Palisade is the flagship and most luxurious SUV of the Hyundai lineup. Primarily Hyundai focused on the left-hand drive market that loves full-size luxury SUVs. As an exception, Hyundai is also evaluating to launch the right-hand drive version on respective countries. India is one of them and Australia is also in the queue. However, India is not a focused market for Hyundai to launch its premium luxurious SUV. But they are waiting for a chance by considering that Indians love big size SUVs.
Hyundai is thinking a lot about the launch. If they import the Palaside then import duties will cost a hefty amount. As a result price of Palisade goes higher. Which becomes an advantage for the rivals.
