Shorter wait for Maruti cars soon as Guj plant

to supply 250k units in FY19

Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) expects easing of the waiting period pressure on its

popular models as it is slated to receive 250,000 units in 2018-19 from parent

Suzuki's Gujarat plant, a senior company official said.

In the ongoing financial year ending March 31, the company will get 150,000 units

from the Gujarat plant, from where the popular premium hatchback Baleno is

being rolled out.

"Currently it (the plant) is on full swing in A and B shifts and in 2018-19 it will give

us full production across the year. So, that would be 250,000 units," MSI Senior

Executive Director (Marketing and Sales) R S Kalsi told PTI.

He further said: "This financial year we will receive 150,000 units because the

second shift operations (at the Gujarat plant) started only in October."

the increased supply from gujarat has helped

The increased supply from Gujarat has helped in reducing waiting period of

popular models such as Baleno and compact SUV Vitara Brezza, Kalsi added.

"At one point of time Baleno used to have a waiting period of around six-eight

months. Now it has come down to about 8-10 weeks. So to that it extent it has

helped us," Kalsi said.

Similarly, Brezza has also come down to 8-10 weeks now, he said, adding extra

capacity from Gujarat has enabled the company to adjust production at its

Manesar and Gurgaon plants for other models in demand.

"There was a certain element of discomfort that we are making our customers

wait for such a long time for our products. So from that point of view, the

discomfort factor that we faced earlier now isn't there," Kalsi said.

The company's new Dzire sedan has also received a robust response from the

market and became the second-best selling model after Alto in December.

The upcoming all-new Swift will also be rolled from the Gujarat plant and MSI

expects demand to be more than the average of 15,000 units a month that the

old version was clocking.

MSI, a subsidiary of Japan's Suzuki Motor Corp, produces 1.5 million cars from its

two plants in Haryana.
