Suzuki Building Second Factory in India
Suzuki announced it will construct a new production facility in Gurgaon, India.
The new facility, slated to open 2014, will produce models specifically for India, whose two-wheeled market scooped 13 million units in 2011 and likely more this year.
Suzuki already has a facility in Gurgaon which opened in 2006, producing the Access and Swish scooters as well as the Sling Shot Plus and the GS150R (pictured above) motorcycles. The existing factory produced 350,000 units in 2011 and the new plant, once it is completed, is expected to produce 500,000 units a year, with room for expansion.
The new plant will be built on land owned by automaker Maruti Suzuki, a subsidiary of the Japanese company.
