Maruti plans new unit at Sonipat, to invest Rs. 11000 crore
Maruti Suzuki will spend Rs 11,000 crore to set up a new manufacturing facility in Haryana, its third in the state and spread over an 800-acre area, as the country’s largest carmaker looks to add a fresh 10 lakh units to its capacity from the location over the coming years.
The company, which currently has an annual installed capacity of 22.5 lakh units across its existing two plants in Haryana (Gurgaon and Manesar) and one in Gujarat (owned by parent Suzuki), will start with an initial capacity of 2.5 lakh units at the new location at IMT Kharkhoda in Sonipat district from 2025. This will thereafter be scaled up to 10 lakh units progressively, as the market expands.
“The first plant with a manufacturing capacity of 2.5 lakh vehicles per annum is expected to be commissioned in 2025, subject to administrative approvals,” the company said.
