The first lot of Maruti Baleno hatchbacks has been exported from the Mundra Port in Gujarat, reports Rushlane. These cars are heading to Japan, which marks the first time that a domestic car maker is exporting to the island country. The Baleno will be exported to over 100 markets worldwide.

This marks the first time that a domestic car maker is exporting to the Japanese market.

The Baleno was launched in India in October, and the Japanese specification was showcased at the Tokyo Motor Show the same month. Positioned above the Swift and retailed via the NEXA outlets, the car competes with the Hyundai i20 and the Honda Jazz, both of which has been outsold by it.

The Baleno exported to Japan comes with a 1.0-liter Boosterjet engine which develops 110 hp and 170 Nm, along with a 1.2-liter Dualjet engine with SHVS technology. Power is transferred via a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.
