Maruti Suzuki’s exports reach 1.5 million units after nearly 30 years

In late September, Suzuki’s Indian subsidiary Maruti Suzuki announced it has reached the 1.5 million unit mark for its exports from India.

In 1982, Maruti Suzuki was established and started assembling automobiles to the domestic market in India. From 1987, it began exporting its vehicles to Hungary. Thereafter, Maruti Suzuki expanded its exports to markets in Asia and other regions.

Currently, it delivers vehicles to over 100 countries around the world including those in Europe, South America and Africa. The recent milestone was achieved nearly 30 years after commencing its export business.

The top five exports for 2015 and 2016 were the Alto, Swift, Celerio, Baleno and Ciaz (in that order).

Moreover, in 2016 Maruti Suzuki began exporting its Baleno from India to the Japanese market.
