Owing to growing demand for Maruti cars, Maruti plans to produce 1.2 million cars in 2011. “We are looking at producing 1.2 million vehicles in FY’11, as compared to 1 million vehicles produced in FY’10,” Maruti Suzuki Managing Executive I V Rao told. “Following the productivity improvement, we are now manufacturing 1 lakh vehicles per month for the last five months,” Rao said. The company’s manufacturing capacity will increase further when its second unit at Manesar commences production next fiscal, he said.
Apart from the increase in production, Maruti is also setting up test track and plans to hire 1000+ engineers to produce its future cars completely in India.
