Default Maruti Suzuki rolls out 15 million cars

Maruti Suzuki has rolled out 15 million cars from its plants in India. The company has achieved this milestone in 31 years and 5 months. The first car was rolled out in December 1983. The 15 millionth car is a Dzire VDi sedan (chassis no. MA3FJEB1S00740865), rolled out from its Manesar facility.

Maruti is now aiming to cross the 20 million mark. Its medium term goal is to clock sales of 2 million vehicles per annum by 2020. The company claims that it is expanding its product portfolio, foraying into new segments and strengthening its sales and service network to achieve this target.

Here is a look at Maruti's total cumulative production over the years:
  • March 1994 - 1 million units
  • April 2005 - 5 million units
  • March 2011 - 10 million units
  • May 2015 - 15 million units
Here is a break-up of the cumulative production of some of the high-selling models that have been produced:
  • Alto (including K10) - 3.1 million units
  • 800 - 2.9 million units
  • Omni - 1.7 million units
  • Wagon R 1.6 - million units

Pardon my ignorance,

But is it the 15 millionth car for domestic market that rolled out? (In which case the actual number of cars produced is much more as MSIL exports a lot of cars)

OR

Is this figure of 15 million with export cars combined? (In which case lesser number of Maruti cars are sold in India)

In my opinion, this is a production milestone of 15 millionth car. It would include production for domestic consumption as well as exports. Maruti seems to be more focused on domestic when compared to some other players (say, Hyundai which exports 1/3rd of its production in India).

Another old news relevant in this context could be this:

Maruti Suzuki's new milestone? One million vehicles exported so far

New Delhi Last Updated: May 3, 2012 | 12:48 IST

Maruti Suzuki India (MSI), the country's leading passenger car manufacturer, has added another feather in its cap. The company on April 30 dispatched its one millionth vehicle - a red coloured hatchback A-star - for delivery in Denmark.

On a side note, the number of 15 million will not include CBU imports like Grand Vitara & Kizashi (however small they may be)
