Maruti Suzuki attains one million cumulative exports mark
The Millionth car, an A-star, goes to Denmark
Algeria crosses 100,000 exports mark
New Delhi, April 30, 2012: Car market leader Maruti Suzuki India Limited exported its one millionth vehicle here today. The glistening red colored A-star left the Mundra coast line along with 2,200 other vehicles for various international destinations including Switzerland, Malta, Sweden in Europe and Algeria, Egypt and Morocco in the non European destinations. The millionth car will be sold in Denmark.
On the achievement, Mr. Shinzo Nakanishi, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, "A million cars in overseas markets is a significant milestone for us. Two years back, Europe was a strong destination for us. We have aligned our exports strategy in line with the changed scenario in exports market. The market for us has shifted significantly from Europe to
non-European countries. While the A-star, marketed under 'Suzuki Alto' and 'Suzuki Celerio' badge in international markets was doing well, we also worked on identifying alternate non European markets. This strategy worked in our favour and helped us retain our export numbers after European nations withdrew the scrappage incentives. We are happy that cars manufactured at Maruti Suzuki India have found good customer acceptance in overseas markets."
