The export of popular Suzuki compact off-roader Jimny from India has begun by Maruti Suzuki India Limited. The first 184 units are on their way to countries like Columbia and Peru from the port of Mundra. The famous Suzuki Jimny will be exported from India to Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.
The all-terrain vehicle is considered to be the “authentic off road vehicle,” and has been catered for customers around the world for over 50 years. Suzuki Motor Corporation in Japan introduced the new generation of Jimny in 2018 which became a famous model worldwide. Consumers like its urban driving appeal too. In the 2019 World Car Awards declared at the New York International Auto Show, the Jimny received the coveted World Urban Car Award.
Suzuki aims to strengthen the stature of Maruti Suzuki`s production with India as a production base for Jimny. Since there is worldwide demand for this model well beyond Suzuki Japan, Indian production will be able to complement this global demand.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “Jimny will fulfill aspirations of customers throughout the world. Jimny manufactured at Maruti Suzuki’s Gurugram plant shares the same specification as the export models produced at the Suzuki Motor Corporation’s Kosai plant in Japan. We are confident with Jimny we will be able to enhance our overall exports.”
The Maruti Suzuki Jimny measures 3,645 mm in length, 1,645 mm in width and 1,720 mm in height. It is powered by a 1.5 litre petrol motor mated to a 5-speed MT or 4-speed automatic transmission.
