This book focuses on the small car segment of India's automotive industry to explain the emergence of lead markets. The authors contend that the current understanding of lead markets does not sufficiently explain the business practices that are born out of the intensified globalization of innovation.

The authors question the conventional wisdom and propose updates and extensions to the lead market theory to better reflect the changing ground realities on ground.Table 8.11 Hyundaia#39;s installed capacity in India (FY 2010a2011) Passenger cars Utility vehicles Engines (petrol) 630, 000 ... 69 $7, 137 $12, 019 4 i20 3, 940 1, 396 100 $9, 130 $16, 074 Product overview on company website as of 26.03.2012; all prices are ...
