Maruti is building 1,200-1,500 units of the Jimny per month for export markets.
As we have reported earlier, Maruti Suzuki has started producing the Jimny for export markets in India. Around 1,200-1,500 units of the 3-door Jimny are being built per month.
We are now being told that Maruti has started dispatching the Jimny to the Mundra port. With this the first made-in-India Jimny crossovers are headed to international markets.
For India, Maruti is said to be working on a 5-door version of the Jimny that is codenamed YWD. Drawings have been finalised and requests for quotations (RFQs) will be submitted to domestic suppliers within January 2021.
The Jimny will be powered by a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine. Maruti aims to launch the car in July 2022.
