10th million Maruti

Recommended Posts


MSIL today rolled out its 10

millionth car from its Gurgaon plant, thus joining a

select club of global car makers to achieve the feat.

"As we reach this historic

landmark, we thank our founding partners who laid a solid foundation of

values and practices," MSI Managing Director and CEO Shinzo Nakanishi

said in a statement.

Suzuki  had earlier planned to

celebrate the occasion but decided against it, following the tragedy in

Japan due to the earthquake and tsunami last week.

"With this landmark achievement, Maruti Suzuki becomes the

only Indian car company that makes its entry into the select club of

automobile manufacturers across the globe who have crossed this

milestone," the company said.



joins global majors like Toyota, General Motors, Ford, Volkswagen,

Renault, Honda an its own parent Suzuki Motor corporation who have already achieved the feat

in the past.

Really a matter of proud for an Indian car manufacturer(better considered as Indian subsidary of Suzuki Corp, Japan) who believed in Quality, Technology, Affordability & Reliability with every consecutive car launched than believing in churning more & more products with same base.

& thankfully Maruti & Suzuki are almost Inseparable now, unlike HH to retain its Image for long time.


Hats-off to Maruti Suzuki for achieving this '1 Crore cars' Milestone.smiley32.gif

The EIGHTH One-Crore-Car-Maker.  From India.

Nice and proud to note this unique achievement.

I am sure, the next one crore will roll out much faster, as they have

a 2 lakh+ capacity per annum at their two plants.  With a booming

market and people willing to buy more than one car, their next

one crore car can come in less than four years or thereabout.

Stupendous feat.  Congratulations to MSIL. 

And, all those who bought cars from them.  ( Self included )

Maruti's production may be affected due to earthquake and Tsunami as I have heard that it is Maruti's practice to keep inventory of components imported from Japan to sustain production for 2 weeks.

May be Kizashi's delivery will hit badly.

@ Rameshbabu.n, this quote of yours '2 lakh+ capacity per annum at their two plants' is by mistake or have I misunderstood it.

                                    Anyways great feat by Maruti. They have been the leaders, in a sense the backbone of the Indian car industry since last 2+ decades. Its only due to the efforts of MS in the initial years that we Indians have got top class products at great prices. If I'm not mistaken MS' turnover from being less than 10% of Suzuki's total turnover a decade back now accounts for about 45-50% of Suzuki's turnover. MS has come a long way and we Indians really 'do go home in a Maruti'.
