On March 23, 2010, Maruti Suzuki rolled out the one millionth car of the year 2009-10. This feat takes the company into a very select group of global automakers with such volumes.

Maruti Suzuki is now expanding its production capacity to reach 12,50,000 units (1.25 million) by 2012. In March 2010, the company announced an investment of Rs 1,700 Crore for expansion of the production facilities by 2.5 lakh units at its Manesar plant.

A spate of new launches and product refreshments during 2009-10 helped the company to clock sterling performance in the fiscal. These included Maruti Suzuki Ritz (May 2009), all-new Grand Vitara (July'09), new Estilo with K-series engine (Aug'09), new SX4 with VVT engine and SX4 with automatic transmission (Oct'09) and Eeco (January 2010).
