Maruti Suzuki is aiming to achieve 20 per cent growth in vehicle exports in the current financial year. The largest car manufacturer in India is aiming to export 1.2 lakh units before March 2015.
The company has exported 92,000 units to over 100 countries till date, in the current financial year. It will soon add the Ciaz in its export line-up to Mexico. Maruti Suzuki said that this was achievable due increase in sales in non-European markets like Africa, Latin America and Middle East.
Other than compact small cars, the company has also exported vehicles like the Swift, DZire, Ertiga and the Celerio to various markets. The top five export markets for the company so far in the current fiscal have been Algeria where it sold 8,991 units, followed by Chile where the company dispatched 7,456 units. The company exported 5,736 units to Angola, 3,618 units to Peru and 2,328 units to Indonesia.
"We are likely to close the financial year with around 1.2 lakh units, a growth of around 20 per cent. December was good month for us. We added markets like Sudan and Mexico and launched the Ciaz in Egypt. Ciaz has been well received in the Egyptian market and will be launched in Mexico shortly," said a Maruti Suzuki spokesperson.
