Suzuki to launch serial production of Vitaras in March
Japanese carmaker Suzuki is scheduled to launch the serial production of the new Vitara model in March at its Hungarian plant, Magyar Suzuki communications director Viktória Ruska told Hungarian economic daily Napi Gazdaság today. The communications director added that production and investment details would be made public at a later date.
Last November CEO Ryoichi Oura foresaw that the launch of serial production of the new model would take place in January, according to Hungarian news agency MTI. He said the Hungarian unit will start selling the new model next spring and will export the cars to all Suzuki markets, MTI added.
In accordance with last November's projections, Hungarian Suzuki’s sales of new vehicles reached 5,000 by the end of last year, rising by a year-on-year 27%. Magyar Suzuki sales rose by a year-on-year 11.6% to €1.567 bln in 2013.
