Outpost of Australia is currently the source of all Suzuki models from Japan, made in India except Alto. As with almost all other Japanese manufacturers, Suzuki looking to Thailand to produce a cheaper product that can take advantage of a free trade agreement with the kingdom of Asia many countries, including Australia. When asked whether Australia would be source of Thailand Suzuki Swift, now a new plant was up and running, the communications manager Andrew Ellis : “We definitely talk to them.” Mr. Ellis said the plant was still in the early prime up phase, and may not be in a position to export until next year.

However, European-targeted Splash five-door hatchback – made in Hungary and India – have also been mentioned in news production to Thailand at some point.
In size and prestige, Splash slot in between the Alto and Swift. Since it has been in existence for four years in Europe, another generation may be in the wings for release, probably next year. If Alto goes into production in Thailand under the state’s scheme of ‘eco-car manufacturers appreciate the variety of benefits, for Suzuki Australia will be tempted to switch the source of the Suzuki Maruti plant in India today.
Suzuki Australia has just lost hundreds of sales Alto for a prolonged attack on India plant. This year, sales of Alto were depressed until last month, returned to near normal levels in March when the company’s dealer network of 340 units delivered. Easy delivery, reputation for quality and free trade agreements would be another reason for Suzuki Australia may consider changes to the plant, must Alto / Splash touches down in Thailand. If Suzuki Australia does not apply to the production of Thailand, it will join Honda, Ford, Nissan – and from later this year Mitsubishi – for a small car or a light source of the country.
Toyota Australia has also expressed a desire to shift production of small cars from Japan to Thailand to cut costs, production slots have become available.
Toyota Hilux and nearly every other one tonne ute sold in Australia (except for up-market, Nissan Navara D40 Spanish-sourced and Volkswagen Amarok) also come from Thailand. Meanwhile, the Chinese joint venture Changan Suzuki Automobile is building a second plant in western China city of Chongqing. Which will be opened in the third quarter of 2013, the new plant will double the production of Suzuki in China to 500,000 units per year. However, Suzuki expects all the cars that will be devoured by the Chinese domestic market.Brand: suzuki
