Maruti Suzuki launched the much-anticipated Jimny in an all-new 5-door avatar in June, with a starting price of Rs 12.74 lakh. Now, the new Jimny has gone global after only a few months on the market. The premium carmaker has officially announced that it has started shipping the Jimny, made in India, across Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. According to Maruti Suzuki, it’s in line with the Government's 'Make in India' initiative. According to reports, the new Jimny's powertrain will remain the same for exports, with the exception of a few region-specific changes. While the off-roader will be available in many other nations, it will not be offered in Europe, according to reports.
