The company entered the export market with minor shipments to Bangladesh and Nepal in 1986. Then in September 1987, Hungary received its first significant shipment of 500 automobiles. In order to consistently raise the caliber of the goods and services offered in the Indian market, Maruti used exports to the developed markets to evaluate its performance against international standards.
Maruti since then, has gradually increased its footprint abroad with assistance from its parent firm, Suzuki Motor Corporation. Today, Maruti Suzuki exports to over 100 countries & regions with the Middle East, Latin America, Asia, and Africa as its key export markets. Speaking on the milestone Mr. Hisashi Takeuchi, Managing Director & CEO of Maruti Suzuki India Limited said:
“The landmark export of 2.5 million vehicles stands as a testimony to India’s manufacturing prowess. This feat demonstrates Maruti Suzuki’s resolute commitment to the Government of India’s flagship Make-in-India initiative, and furthering Government’s efforts to enhance vehicle exports. This was possible because of the strong support of our parent company, Suzuki Motor Corporation, who not only provided strong technical support but also helped us leverage their vast global network to achieve this milestone. I would also like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our teams who played an important role in realizing this feat. We thank our global customers and our overseas distributors for their support and trust.”
