Maruti Suzuki will add yet another major market to its existing roster of international locations that it supplies vehicles to in the form of Thailand. The Japanese automaker has announced that it will wind down its factory in the Southeast Asian nation and instead switch to a CBU route for supplying vehicles. The automaker has cited restructuring of global production operations as the main factor in this decision.

India is one of the major production hubs in terms of global supply for Suzuki as a whole. Maruti is now building an additional plant close to its existing facilities in Gurgaon. The plant is expected to double its capacity over the next few years as India will also don the role of supplying the eVX for global markets, Thailand included.

Suzuki Thailand’s line-up is the same as what is offered in India starting with the Swift and topping out with the XL7 hybrid, which has the same formula as the XL6 but with bench seats for the second and third row. We also expect the Grand Vitara and the five-door Jimny to be added to this line-up in the future.
