Suzuki Motor Corp will increase its engine output capacity in India by about 30 percent to more than 1.25 million units a year by setting up a new line dedicated to low-pollution models, the Nikkei business daily said.
Suzuki will invest nearly 10 billion yen (USD 108.2 million) to install a production line capable of churning out 300,000 units annually at a manufacturing base near New Delhi this year, the paper said.
The line will be dedicated to producing so-called K-series low-emission models, which are mainly mounted on small cars with 1 to 1.2-liter engines, the Nikkei said.
The investment, which will lift production capacity of low-production engines in India by 60% to 800,000 a year, is in response to stricter emission regulations adopted the country, the paper said.
