During a media interaction, Maruti Suzuki’s top management had announced plans to set up a diesel engine manufacturing plant in Gurgaon. Some sections of the media had taken this to mean that Maruti Suzuki would shut down production of cars in the Gurgaon plant and shift car-making to Gujarat. The company has clarified that there is no plan to stop production of cars in the Gurgaon plant, and car-making operations at the Gurgaon plant will continue.


A statement from Maruti Suzuki said, “The company will reduce the number of cars produced at the Gurgaon plant and make available space for expanding the engine manufacturing capacity, including a new diesel engine plant. The company will continue to increase production at Manesar, where a third plant with an annual capacity of 2.50 lakh units is coming up. Once the capacity in Manesar is fully utilized, the company plans to set up a new facility in Gujarat. Together, the facilities at all three locations – Gurgaon, Manesar and Gujarat – will be used by the company to manufacture vehicles to meet market demand.”
