Suzuki launches production of Vitara in Hungary
Japanese car producer Suzuki today launched production of its new Vitara model at its Hungarian plant in Esztergom in northern Hungary, the company announced at the opening ceremony today.
"Suzuki places Magyar Suzuki as a significant strategic hub, and will continuously expand its production," Suzuki chief executive Osamu Suzuki said. Suzuki started preparations for the Vitara production more than two years ago, spending approximately €160 mln in the process, the CEO added.
The carmaker established its unit in Hungary in 1991. Since then, Magyar Suzuki has turned out eight models, including the Swift and the Splash. Accumulated production reached 2.5 mln units last year.
