The plant, expected to be up and running by 2015, would cater mainly to export markets and have an initial capacity of 2.5-3 lakh units and is likely to build the A-Star, Estilo and Swift as per the report.

As Sanand is also a home to Tata Motors’ Nano plant, the report says quoting government that the project is an attempt by the state government to develop a cluster of top auto companies on the lines of Detroit, US. Apart from the Tatas and now Maruti, General Motors has a light commercial vehicle plant at Halol in Gujarat.

    GREAT NEWS FOR GUJARAT. MOREOVER MARUTI CAN EFFECTIVELY COMPETE WITH HUNDAI & FORD WHO ARE IN PORT CITY OF CHENNAI. BUT GUJ IS THE PORT FOR WHOLE OF NORTH INDIA. FURTHER THIS PLANT CAN CATER WELL TO WESTERN & SOUTHERN INDIA, & ALSO MOVE CARS BY BIG SHIPS TO SOUTH INDIA & EASTERN INDIA FROM GUJ PORTS.
    THIS WILL MAKE IT ECONOMICAL FOR MARUTHI.& LESS POLLUTION .

    This is certainly a very positive development for Gujarat, and it will give a major boost to automobiles industry in the state. In addition to good infrastructure and proximity to middle-east and European markets, business friendly environment and proactive governance that Gujarat offers today is perhaps unparalleled. Let’s leave no stone unturned to ensure that plans of Maruti Suzuki fructifies and they get the required support from every sphere in the state.
