Maruti Suzuki crosses 2.5 crore production mark
The output of Maruti Suzuki has reached a new high point. The automaker has accomplished a cumulative production of over 2.5 crore units, making it the first Indian business to do so.
Beginning its operations in 1983, Maruti Suzuki released the Maruti 800 (SS80) from its first manufacturing plant in Gurugram. In Haryana's Gurugram and Manesar, the automaker now operates two cutting-edge plants with a combined manufacturing capacity of 1.5 million vehicles annually. Additionally, the business purchases some automobiles from its Suzuki Motor Corporation-owned plants in Gujarat.
The M800 era of the brand has long ago passed. Presently, it makes 16 models, which are offered on Arena and Nexa, two retail channels. Additionally, the automaker exports to almost 100 countries globally.
Hisashi Takeuchi, managing director and CEO, Maruti Suzuki said "2022 marks 40 years of Suzuki's partnership with the people of India. Crossing of 25 million cumulative production milestone this year is a testimony of Suzuki's continued commitment and partnership with the people of India. Anticipating growing demand for passenger vehicles, we have also started work on setting up a new manufacturing facility in Kharkhoda, Haryana."
