Hyundai Motor Co. could raise as much as $3.5 billion from the eagerly anticipated initial public offering of its Indian unit, people familiar with the matter said, easily making it the biggest to ever take place in the country.

Hyundai Motor India Ltd. plans to start gauging investor interest in the coming weeks, with a listing likely in September or October, the people said, asking not to be identified as the information isn’t public.

The carmaker is targeting a deal size of at least $3 billion, potentially rising to as much as $3.5 billion, the people said. Details such as the size and timing of the offering are still under discussion and may change, they said.

A representative for Hyundai India declined to comment. IFR and India media have previously reported the IPO could raise about $3 billion. An IPO of that size would break the record set by Life Insurance Corp. of India, which raised 206 billion rupees ($2.5 billion) in 2022. It would also be one of Asia’s biggest IPOs in recent years.

Hyundai filed a draft red herring prospectus with the market regulator in mid-June, saying it would sell a 17.5 per cent stake, or 142.2 million shares. The unit isn’t selling new shares in the IPO and the proceeds will go to the parent, it said. Almost $5 billion has been raised via IPOs in India this year, more than double the amount by this stage last year, data compiled by Bloomberg show.
