Maruti to launch new Swift by end 2011

Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) said that it will launch an upgraded variant of the Swift by the end of next year. The 3rd generation Suzuki Swift was unveiled earlier this year in Hungary.

Maruti said that it will reorient the production of ‘Swift’ and ‘DZiRE’ in its two facilities at Gurgaon and Manesar to enhance output.

The company will shift the entire assembly of its sedan ‘DZiRE’ to the Gurgaon plant by around July next year. It will also shift the production of hatchback ‘Swift’, which is currently being produced at both the plants, entirely to Manesar sometime in future.

Currently, the company manufactures about 10,000 units of DZiRE and 12,000 units of Swift every month.
