After 26 long years of existing in India, Maruti Suzuki is all geared up to roll out its millionth vehicle on the 23rd of March, this financial year. Suzuki Motor Corp’s chairman Mr. Osamu Suzuki is keen to be a part of the celebrations which is why he will soon be on his way to India. It may not be great news for international biggies like Toyota, GM and Suzuki itself since they are wide spread in the international market. It is rather an achievement for Maruti Suzuki since most of its major operations take place in the Indian Market only.
“It (the roll out of the millionth vehicle) is indeed a very satisfying feeling, as it marks the culmination of a journey that started 26 years ago,” said Maruti Suzuki chairman RC Bhargava. “Maruti Suzuki will now rank among a select few companies which would be producing a million units in a year,” he added.
Maruti Suzuki was born when the country witnessed the production of mere 40,000 cars in a year. The firm’s first car, Maruti 800 which was launched in 1983 proved to be a legend which brought success for almost two decades.
