TOKYO -- Suzuki Motor will stop producing vehicles in China, the world's largest car market, amid flagging sales and the rise of electric vehicles, a field the Japanese carmaker has not waded into.

It will instead focus its resources on the growing Indian market and the relatively unexploited market of Africa. Suzuki earlier pulled out of the U.S., and has now abandoned the world's top two markets.
