Maruti Suzuki will shift production of Swift DZire, to its Gurgaon facility from Manesar. Maruit Suzuki will carry out layout changes at its Gurgaon plant, which has escaped any major industrial dispute in the past decade, to facilitate the sedan’s rollout.
Swift Dzire is the top selling sedan in india with sales crossing 8,000 units per month.
Maruti will be launching the new Swift by end of August and the new Dzire will be launched later. There are news about the shortened version of the Dzire to be launched which will help attract tax incentives as the car will be less than 4 metres.
Launched in 2008, the car currently has a waiting period of almost six months. The Gurgaon plant, which produced the company’s first car in 1983, rolls out the Alto, WagonR, Estilo, Eeco and Ritz models, besides the older Omni and Gypsy. It accounted for the bulk of the 1.27 million cars the company produced last fiscal.
