Maruti Suzuki has exported two million vehicles from India, the popular automaker said in an announcement. The export goal achieved by the automaker is in line with the goal of the Make-In-India initiative of the government.
The export milestone achieved by the Indo-Japanese automaker comprised a batch of S-Presso, Swift, and Vitara Brezza. The company exported the vehicles to South Africa from the Mundra Port in Gujarat.
Maruti Suzuki uses the Mundra Port for the export of models to Latin America, the East, and Europe. The Indian automaker began producing and exporting Suzuki Jimny last month.
“Maruti Suzuki has been exporting vehicles for the past 34 years much before India became a prominent player in the global automobile business. This early global exposure helped the company enhance its quality and attain global benchmarks. Currently, we export 14 models, nearly 150 variants, to over 100 countries. Vehicles manufactured at our facilities in India have found high acceptance owing to global standards of quality, safety, design, and technology,” Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited said.
“Going forward, the company has aligned itself with the evolving needs of customers in African and Latin American nations. With a flurry of new models in the pipeline, Maruti Suzuki will attract customers in new segments to enable the company to accomplish bigger milestones at a much faster pace,” he added.
