The next-gen Maruti Dzire will be manufactured at the company’s Manesar plant in Haryana. Along with this, the car is also expected to enter production at their new plant in Becharaji, Gujarat. The new plant is a wholly owned by Japanese parent company Suzuki which has invested INR 2,500 crore on the project.
Swift and Dzire together generate over 30,000 units of sales for Maruti Suzuki India. This in spite of the fact that many new cars have been launched in the segment. The much needed new generation variants will give Maruti Suzuki an even platform to compete with new age rivals.
Reports suggest that Maruti has asked its vendors to make new investments and expand capacity to keep pace with the growth rate. The small car specialist is confident of meeting its target of selling 2 million units a year by 2020. Meeting the target would require increasing the production capacity significantly. The Gujarat plant is expected to receive another INR 2,500 crore investment in 2018-19 so that it can enter the second phase of operations.
