  • Toyota and Suzuki announced to concrete collaboration in new fields
  • Suzuki to provide two compact vehicles built on Suzuki platforms namely Ciaz and Ertiga to Toyota
  • Toyota to provide HEV technologies in India through local procurement of HEV systems, engines, and batteries.

Toyota Motor Corporation and Suzuki Motor Corporation announced their agreement to further begin considering concrete collaboration in new spectrums. Earlier, both the companies join their hands by signing a memorandum of understanding on February 6, 2017. Both the companies have decided to come out with their vision in the global market including India.

Speaking on this, Toyota President Akio Toyoda said, “When it comes to vehicle electrification, which is expected to make further inroads, hybrid technologies are seen as playing a huge role in many markets, as from before. Widespread acceptance is necessary for electrified vehicles to be able to contribute to Earth’s environment. Through our new agreement, we look forward to the wider use of hybrid technologies, not only in India and Europe, but around the world. At the same time, we believe that the expansion of our business partnership with Suzuki—from the mutual supply of vehicles and powertrains to the domains of development and production—will help give us the competitive edge we will need to survive this once-in-a-century period of profound transformation. We intend to strengthen the competitiveness of both our companies by applying our strong points and learning from each other.”

Suzuki Chairman Osamu Suzuki said, “At the time we announced our scope of cooperation in May last year, I spoke that we will strive for success globally. I have seen progress in the partnership since then, and it is my pleasure to be able to make this announcement today regarding the status of partnership on a global basis, including Europe and Africa. In addition, we appreciate the kind offer from Toyota to let us make use of their hybrid technology. We will continue our utmost efforts.”

Toyota will use its strength provide its electrified technology and electrified vehicles such as its widely spread hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) technologies in India through local procurement of HEV systems, engines, and batteries, whereas Suzuki will provide compact vehicles and powertrains and it will supply two compact vehicles built on Suzuki platforms namely Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Ertiga MPV to Toyota in India.
