Maruti Suzuki, one of the oldest manufacturers in India, has just crossed an historical landmark. The company has now sold more than 10 million units since its inception. The 10 millionth vehicle, a Red Swift Vxi, was sent to its proud owner in Coimbatore from the Manesar factory.
Established in 1983, Maruti Suzuki has served the nation for more than 28 years with its highly reliable and fuel efficient cars. The Indo-Japanese czar can be truly credited for putting India on four wheels.
