Hyundai plans diesel i10

Korean carmaker Hyundai is planning a diesel engine variant for its i10 compact hatchback to enhance sales of the car, which is currently available only with a petrol engine.

With an increasing demand for diesel cars, the company is trying to get a diesel engine for the i10, Hyundai Motor India Managing Director and CEO B S Seo told reporters on Monday.

The company already sells the i10 with a 1.1 litre diesel engine in Europe, a modified version of which may be considered for India, he said.

Responding to a question whether the company plans to set up a diesel plant in India, Seo said that the company is still studying the option and a decision is yet to be taken.
