The Baleno hatchback is one of the top selling model for the automaker in India. The Indian counterpart expects to receive around 10,000 Baleno units this fiscal from the parent company, Suzuki facility in Gujarat. Production at Suzuki Motor Corp’s first wholly-owned facility in Hansalpur, Gujarat will begin early next year.

Speaking about it, MSI Chairman R C Bhargava said, “The whole project (Gujarat) is on schedule. We will be selling cars from made in Gujarat from February. That remains, there is no change in that. During this financial year about 10,000 cars from Gujarat will be produced and delivered to us for sale.” Suzuki estimates the total investment of around USD 1,400 million on the facility which will have two vehicle assembly lines that can produce 2.5 lakh units per annum each and an engine plant.

 Suzuki’s plant will supply vehicles and components exclusively to Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) which holds nearly half of the share in the Indian market. MSI’s two production facilities in Gurgaon and Manesar have a total production capacity of 1.5 million units annually. The Japanese automaker has also revealed the new Swift that is likely to be launched in India sometime by the end of 2017. The automaker has also offered the ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard to ensure child safety in the vehicle.
