Toyota, Suzuki reach basic agreement toward mutual supply of hybrid and other vehicles in India

Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) and Suzuki Motor Corporation (Suzuki) have concluded a basic agreement toward the mutual supply of hybrid and other vehicles between the two companies for the Indian market.

Specifically, Suzuki will supply the Baleno and Vitara Brezza vehicle models to Toyota, while Toyota will supply the Corolla vehicle model to Suzuki. Details on each model, such as the schedule of the start of supply, number of supplied units, vehicle specifications, and supply pricing, will be considered at a later stage.

The vehicles will be sold by respective subsidiaries of Toyota and Suzuki based in India through their sales networks.

Since 6 February 2017, when Toyota and Suzuki concluded a memorandum toward business partnership, the two companies have been exploring concrete projects for collaboration in areas including environmental technology, safety technology, information technology, and the mutual supply of products and components. The November 2017 announcement of a memorandum of understanding between Toyota and Suzuki to consider a cooperative structure for introducing battery electric vehicles in the Indian market in around 2020 was one outcome of the joint exploration into the partnership.

This latest announcement is another outcome. For the vehicle models covered by the basic agreement, the two companies will enhance their efforts to procure components locally to the extent possible toward the achievement of the “Make in India” initiative promoted by the Indian government. Toyota and Suzuki say they remain committed to the widespread acceptance and use of less fuel-consuming vehicles to help India reduce its environmental footprint and enhance energy security.

India being the next very large market for vehicles (of all types) it should be duly considered as the near future fast growing local and export market for all interested majors.
