From its two export facilities in Mumbai & Gujarat, Maruti Suzuki has cumulatively exported over 18,00,000 (1.8 million) units, to date.
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has just breached the million mark of its car exports from Gujarat's Mundra port. The millionth vehicle to leave Mundra, an Oxford Blue Dzire, started off its journey to Chile. Serving as Maruti Suzuki's second terminal port, the Mundra port began Maruti Suzuki's export operations in 2009 & it serves as a gateway for exports to regions like Latin America, Far East & Europe. It's worth mentioning that Maruti Suzuki exports its vehicles to as many as 125 countries and, in total, it has exported over 18,00,000 (1.8 million) units, to date.
Sharing his thoughts on achieving the milestone figure, Mr Kenichi Ayukawa, MD & CEO at MSIL said, 'Within a decade of commencement of exports from Mundra, we've achieved the significant milestone of shipping out our one-millionth car. At Maruti Suzuki, we have always aligned our exports strategy to keep pace with the changing market scenario. Maruti Suzuki's exports are aligned with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s flagship vision of “Make in India”. The efforts by Maruti Suzuki reflect India’s capabilities of manufacturing cars that meet global standards of quality, safety, design and technology.'
At present, Maruti Suzuki's export range includes 14 models, with the Alto K10, Celerio, Baleno, Ignis & Dzire representing a prominent share of the export pie. Not too long ago, the homegrown carmaker also celebrated the one million sales milestone of its Utility Vehicles (UVs). The brand's UV range consists of the Vitara Brezza, Ertiga, S-Cross & the newly-launched XL6 premium MPV.
