Maruti Suzuki Jimny Export
Soon, African and Middle Eastern countries will also join the list

Maruti Suzuki has began the export of made-in-India Jimny compact off-roader and the first consignment of 184 units have left for Latin American countries.

Last year, the top brass at Suzuki Motor Corporation decided to utilise the manufacturing facilities of Maruti Suzuki in India to build the very popular 3-door Jimny as its Japanese plant in Kosai was unable to meet global demand.

By the latter half of 2020, Maruti had begun producing the 3-door Jimny, slated only for export, at its Gurugram plant and test mules were spotted plying on public roads as well.

Now, Maruti Jimny export has officially begun with 184 units of the small SUV leaving from the Mundra Port in Gujarat to Latin American countries such as Colombia and Peru.

Soon, the India-made 3-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny will also be exported to countries in Africa and in the Middle East and Maruti is confident that with the Jimny it will be able to enhance its overall exports.

Measuring 3645 mm long, 1645 mm wide and with a height of 1720 mm, the Jimny is a compact off-roader that comes powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine that is mated to either a 5-speed MT or 4-speed AT, while 4-wheel-drive is offered.

Soon, Maruti will be producing the 5-door Jimny and unlike the version with fewer doors, India will be the sole manufacturing hub for the SUV that will compete in the niche lifestyle off-roader segment.
