Maruti Suzuki: Brand overview

Founded:24 February 1981
Founder:Government of India
New Delhi, India
Maruti Suzuki India Limited’s origins trace back to 1981, when it was conceived as a collaborative venture between the Government of India and Suzuki Motor Corporation. Just two years after its inception, in 1983, the company put down roots with its first production facility in Gurugram, Haryana. The same year witnessed the birth of the Maruti 800, a car emblematic of Indian automotive culture, often hailed as India’s inaugural “people’s car.”

By 1987, Suzuki Motor Corporation had amplified its commitment to the Indian market by securing a majority stake in the company, leading to its rechristening as Maruti Udyog Limited. The 1990s proved to be a transformative era for the brand. With India’s middle class rising, Maruti responded by diversifying its offerings with several new vehicle launches.

A reflection of its growing stature, 2007 saw the company inaugurate additional production capacities in Manesar, Haryana. With this expansion, the firm adopted its moniker, Maruti Suzuki India Limited. Currently, Maruti Suzuki’s influence on the Indian automotive scene is undeniable. Capturing a commanding majority, over 50%, of the Indian passenger vehicle segment, the brand rolls out more than 1.5 million cars each year.

Vehicles like the Alto, Swift, Baleno, and Brezza are not just products but have become an intrinsic part of the Indian automotive narrative over the years. Maruti Suzuki stands tall as India’s premier car manufacturer, a testament to its consistent delivery of vehicles that resonate with the Indian populace – reliable, economical, and fuel-efficient. Beyond manufacturing, the company has been instrumental in steering India towards a broader automotive horizon.
