Maruti Suzuki India Ltd.

Company Background

Maruti Suzuki India, the country's No. 1 automaker, controls more than 40% of the domestic passenger car market.


The company started out as a state-run entity called Maruti Udyog in 1981. The following year, with the government actively promoting foreign investment in India, Japan's Suzuki Motor came on board as a joint venture partner.


The Japanese automaker gradually increased its stake in Maruti Udyog and turned it into a subsidiary in 2002. In 2007, the Indian government unloaded all of its remaining shares and the company was renamed Maruti Suzuki.


Although Maruti Suzuki is widely thought of as an Indian company, Suzuki owns a majority stake.


The company runs two factories in the northern state of Haryana. It has capacity for more than 1500,000 vehicles. Suzuki, meanwhile, is setting up an auto plant in the western state of Gujarat, scheduled to come onstream in 2017. This facility will be operated by a new, wholly owned Suzuki unit, rather than Maruti, but its output will be marketed by the Indian carmaker.


Although it focused on compact hatchbacks for years -- its Maruti 800 became an icon -- Maruti Suzuki now has sedans and sport utility vehicles in its lineup as well.

Business Summary

Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. engages in the manufacture, purchase and sale of motor vehicles, components, and spare parts. It includes facilitation facilitation of pre-owned car sales, fleet management and car financing. The company was founded on February 24, 1981 and is headquartered in New Delhi, India.
