SUV Suzuki Jimny embarked on a conveyor in India – DRIVE

The off-road vehicle in Gurgaon has a separate Jimny Line production line. Maruti Suzuki CEO Kenichi Ayukawa noted that the Jimny launch contributes to the “Make in India” program promoted by the Indian government.

Three-door Suzuki Jimny The fourth generation (JB64W / JB74W), produced only at the Kosai plant in Shizuoka since 2018, has been produced by Maruti Suzuki in Gurgaon since January 20. In terms of characteristics, the Indian Jimny is identical to the Japanese one and is manufactured “exclusively for export” to Latin America, Africa and the Middle East. In India itself, the all-terrain vehicle is not available and is expected in about six months.

Maruti Suzuki says global demand is “far beyond the capabilities” of the Japanese plant, so additional capacity was required. The first export consignment, including 184 Jimny, recently departed from the port of Mundra (pictured) to Colombia and Peru.

The Indians are hoping to get an as-yet-defunct five-door version. According to Autocar India, the Jimny 5-door is under development and will be based at the Maruti Suzuki plant in Gujarat. All differences from the three-door will be reduced to the increased size. There will be no surprises under the hood: there will be a petrol aspirated 1.5 (102 HP, 130 N • m) with a five-speed “mechanics” and a four-band “automatic” with all-wheel drive AllGrip Pro AWD. Note that in Russia in 2020, 1287 SUVs were sold (+ 131%) at prices ranging from 1,709,000 to 1,919,000 rubles.
