Maruti Suzuki has started export of Suzuki’s compact off-roader Jimny from India with the first shipment of 184 units leaving from Mundra port to Latin American countries like Colombia and Peru.
The three-door Suzuki Jimny will be exported to Latin America, Middle East, and African markets from India, the company said on Wednesday.
Known as the ‘authentic off-roader,’ the all-terrain vehicle has a legacy of over 50 years, catering to customers worldwide. The current generation of Jimny was launched in 2018 by Suzuki Motor Corporation in Japan and has emerged as a popular choice globally.
With India as a production base for Jimny, Suzuki aims to leverage Maruti Suzuki’s global production stature. As there is a large customer demand worldwide well beyond Suzuki Japan capacity for this model, Indian
manufacturing will supplement capacity to meet this global demand.
As per sources, India-spec Jimny is expected to launch in the country in 2021. It could get a price tax of approx Rs 10 lakh onwards, and will most likely be sold through the NEXA chain.
