Suzuki is dealing with its backlog of Jimny orders globally by adding it Gurgaon Plant in India to the SUV's production roster.
The carmaker says the Jimny assembled in India shares the same specification as the export models produced at the Kosai Plant in Japan.
Currently, its production facilities in India boast the largest production capacity for the carmaker. It builds Swift, Baleno and Ignis in India.
The fourth-generation has proved to be popular with the company not able to handle the demand, this has led to long waiting lists and back orders in many markets, including South Africa.
Suzuki says an increase in production will assist in shortening the long waiting list and get eager customers into their new Jimny as soon as possible.
The Guragaon plant is used to handle high-volume production and is an integral part of the company's production network it says. In 2020, the Jimny marked its 50th birthday with celebrations from Suzuki distributors and fans across the globe.
