I had seen the 800 nee Alto in Amsterdam in 93.
And in Rome I spotted a LHS Maruti. Marutis were exported to Italy then.

I've seen a Bajaj Pulsar in Singapore and a Honda Dio in France. Of course, it wasn't called the Dio. It had a numerical name and the Honda wing was quite prominent on it.

Among the properly Indian car/bikes, I think it is the Bajaj Pulsar, the Tata Safari and the Mahindra Goa (as the Scorpio is called in most foreign markets) that are the most popular.

The Safari and the Goa, do have an image of a no-nonsense decent cheap SUV in Europe. I think it is Italy where a large number of them get sold.

But the most prolific Indian automobile that you will find out side India is probably the ubiquitous Tata trucks, racking up around 4thousand export numbers every month.

These are some of my spottings in Dubai. I have also seen many swifts & altos, but I dont consider them as "Indian" cars.

In the year 2006, I made multiple voyages to Malta. I had seen good amount of Tata Safari there then. Also quite a few Indicas were there.
Earlier to it, in 2003 I made multiple voyages to Malaysia and Indica was quite popular there. Tata trucks too were plying in huge numbers. All those moments made me feel proud.
Today I am at Doha awaiting ship and I happened to spot a scorpio here bright red. It feels nice.

I just wish that all these true Indian vehicles mature into still better products so that the entire world finds appeal in them just like they find in Jap and korean cars nowdays.

Rgds.

Shucks,going by the title I came here to report my spotting of a former Miss India in Amsterdam!
Anyways, the Dio (not sure what its called) is quite popular and I have seen it a few times in a few European countries.

I am pretty surprised to see so many Indian cars/two wheelers in foreign nations, one just could say Indian automobile companies have raised the bar for other automobile competitors.

The Suzuki Ritz is re-badged as the Vauxhall Agila. It's basically the same car, but is sold as the Ritz in our market and as the Splash in other markets. Suzuki and GM had tied up earlier, you see.

Another example is the Fiat Sedici which is the hatch-crossover version of the Suzuki SX4 sedan that's sold here.

The Agila's rear seems better than the Indian Ritz's. May be due to the tail lights and graphics, and also the number plate being housed on the rear bumper.

Wow, an Indica! Can't make out if it was driven from some other country or if it was fitted with LHS steering control. Believe Spain follows the continental Europe RHS driving.

It is a LHD car, as can be seen in the pic, which shows the position of the steering wheel.
