Boasting of futuristic look and having several features of cutting edge technology the Fluidic Verna Sedan in its new avtar had recently been launched to create a new benchmark of upper mid-size cars in India, said Mr Rajiv Mitra, General Manager, Corporate Communications, Hyundai India.

Speaking to newsmen after the 100-odd-km test drive, undertaken by a select group of journalists through the busy city roads and its neighbourhood, Mr Mitra said the new Verna pioneered a host of premium and futuristic design elements based on 'Fluidic Sculpture Design Philosophy'.

He said the new Verna also boasted of a number of features which were specially developed for the Indian edition of the car. Among these was the feature of 'cluster ioniser' which was aimed at improving the quality of air inside the vehicle by producing ion-plasma which trapped bacteria and other impunities while the Air conditioning system was on.

Asked about the safety features of the new car, Mr Mitra claimed that Verna was now packed with an array of world class effective safety technlogies to enable the occupants to enjoy the benefits of travelling in one of the safest mid-size sedan.

He said the new car which would be brought to India in a knocked down condition would be assembled at its state-of-the-art plant near Chennai which following its huge demand in the market had recently been upgraded and modernised further at a cost of Rs 3,000 crore.

Following the recent expansion Hyundai India's production capacity had touched the 600,000 mark per annum from this year, Mr Mitra said replying to another query.
