Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) may increase its Manesar plant production capacity by one lakh units to cater to the enhanced demand before its Sonipat facility commences operations in 2025, a senior company official said.
The country’s largest carmaker may also look at expanding production capacity at its Gurugram-based manufacturing facility to cater to the rising demand for its products.
Currently, MSI has a cumulative production capacity of 15 lakh units per annum at both Manesar and Gurugram plants. It additionally has access to 7.5 lakh units from parent Suzuki Motor’s facility in Gujarat.
The company has already commenced work at the new facility in Kharkhoda in Haryana. The plant is expected to be operational by 2025 with an installed production capacity of 2.5 lakh units in the first phase.
