Indica, Indigo SW, Safari Dicor, Xenon (pick up)

Mahindra sells the Goa and Bolero

There may be a Hyundai plant in Mexico (not sure) but intial model Atos came built in Korea and current one is Indian built.I dont think newer(revised)Santro( Atos prime) is built anywhere else in the world.
Chrysler is planning to replace Atos though with a Chinese car soon (Cherry something)
Two references I found on google search.
The Hindu Business Line : Hyundai all set to ship Santro to Mexico
The Hindu Business Line : Santro will continue to sell as Dodge Atos in Mexico

Default Re: What Indian cars are available abroad?

I'm not sure if this is the right place where this belongs.

Saw this M800 in Budapest, Hungary in one of the TopGear episodes. Season 10 Episode 10 to be precise.

I am not sure if they were sold there or if this was a one off export, like some Ambys in the UK.

This is not an Indian car, available abroad. It is a late 1984, 5th gen. Suzuki Fronte. Originally, it had a 3 cyl. 543 cc engine, but by 1986, one could also get a DOHC and a turbo.

Two years later, Suzuki licensed Maruti India to manufacture this body in 1986 in India, as the Maruti 800. It had a 796 cc, non-DOHC, non-turbo engine with the wheels from the old 1983 Omni van.
