Maruti Suzuki India, the largest passenger car manufacturer has announced that it has crossed total exports of 15 lakh vehicles. The company had started exporting cars to Europe as early as 1987- 1988 and currently it exports to over 100 countries in Latin America, Africa and Europe. Maruti Suzuki began its export business way back in 1987-1988 when a small number of cars were exported to Hungary. Thereafter exports have grown significantly with the launch of Maruti Zen. The Maruti Suzuki Alto, A-Star and 800 further helped the brand to set its footprint across the globe.

Earlier this year Maruti Suzuki has started exporting the Indian made Baleno hatchback to Suzuki’s home ground Japan. This export made the Baleno the first car to be exported to Japan from India. Alto which is India’s most popular car has a sizable presence in the other markets and it has clocked over 3,90,000 sales in total.

According to the Managing director and CEO of Suzuki, the premium hatchback Baleno made exclusively in India is the first car to be exported to India from Japan. It has become the symbol of the Make in India mission of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and taken India’s export story to a whole new level.

In 2015-2016 the company's top exported models are Swift, Alto, Celerio, Baleno and Ciaz. Countries like Sri-lanka, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Philippines are the main destination for the exports. Recently, Maruti Suzuki has started exporting its first light commercial vehicle, the Super Carry to countries like South Africa and Tanzania and would be exported to SAARC countries soon.

So its clear that India’s largest passenger car manufacturer is taking its business to a higher altitude, be it on home turf or in abroad which eventually is strengthening India’s economy. With some upcoming launches on the cards, one can expect Maruti Suzuki to grow further in terms of sales in India and in terms of exporting cars abroad.
