Maruti Suzuki begins Baleno shipments  to Japan

The country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) has dispatched the first shipment of its premium hatchback Baleno to Japan, where it will be launched next month.

It is for the first time that a model manufactured by Maruti Suzuki is being exported to Japan, where its parent Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC) is based.

The first consignment comprised 1,800 units and was shipped from Mundra Port in Gujarat, where SMC is setting up a manufacturing plant to supply cars to its Indian arm.

Recently, around 200 dealers from Japan visited the Manesar plant to closely look at the manufacturing process of the product. Maruti also plans to export the Baleno to over 100 global markets.
