Maruti Suzuki India Focusing on Small Car Market

Earlier we had reported about Maruti Suzuki making claims that A-star achieved a top mileage of nearly 27 kms to a litre. The Indian automaker has been known to roll out cars that are small and offer a good value for money, something that the population here looks out for.

Small cars are their strength, many analysts have apparently said that, and ET is reporting that MSI will now be focusing on the small car market here. The car maker will expand their production capacity in the coming to financial years to an extra two lakh cars. An executive from the company informs that this is being done to cater the small car market, which is buoyant.

Shinzo Nakanishi is the managing director at Maruti Suzuki India. Nakanishi commented, “As demand has increased and will only grow further, we would require additional capacity beyond the current nine lakh cars a year to cater to the small car market. We will increase volumes to meet rising domestic demand and higher export orders.”

The company, apparently, is planning to invest Rs 1,800 crore to expand their capacity. Currently, the Indian carmaker has the capacity to make six lakh cars in Gurgaon. They have sold some 7.9 lakh cars in the last fiscal, domestically as well as abroad. Maruti Suzuki also has a plant at Manesar, where the newer, globally strategic models such as SX4, Swift and A-Star are produced.
