Made in India car from Maruti Suzuki

India's No. 1
Saw this press report…
  • ‘MADE IN INDIA’ Car from Maruti Suzuki, finally ! – bahut der kardee?! Should have been done much earlier considering India is one of the key markets for Suzuki and the power of Indian brain!
  • As a part of the company's strategy to develop and design future models in India- “the company is yet to fix a specific timeline for it," let us hope the timelines finalised so that we can see the project fructify and we can drive a Made in India car, not only in India, but here in Middle East & beyond
  • recruited top engineers from US auto companies in Detroit- power of Indian brain…reverse brain drain. Hope they come back with strong environmental consciousness!

The R & D centre-the first outside Japan-is coming up at Rohtak at an investment of Rs 1,500 crore. Spread over 700 acre of land, the first phase of the project is estimated to be completed by 2012. The company had stated in August 2009 that Maruti Suzuki is going to design and roll out a car that would be totally developed in India – Wow ! I hope they would come up with something closest to a zero pollution vehicle!
