To clear pending orders, the compact sedan will now also be rolled out from the Gurgaon plant.
Back in July, we had reported that Maruti Suzuki had ran out of stock of its popular Swift hatchback and the Swift DZire compact sedan, following the lockout and complete halt of production at the company's plant in Manesar.
Today however, the company has reported that the pending orders for its Swift DZire sedan has crossed the 65,000 mark. And as a correctional step, Maruti Suzuki has now announced that it has started manufacturing the model at the Gurgaon plant bedsides rolling it out from the troubled Manesar facility.
Earlier, the company was rolling out the old version of the sedan from the Gurgaon plant, while the Manesar plant was producing the new Dzire.
"Now the Gurgaon plant has also started manufacturing the new Dzire after the lockout at the Manesar plant was lifted," MSI chief operating officer, supply chain, S Maitra said.
Still recovering from the impact of workers' violence in July at the Manesar plant, the company also said it is looking at 10 per cent increase in overall production this fiscal.
