Maruti Suzuk rolled out its ten millionth car today, which was a Metallic Breeze Blue coloured WagonR VXi. The car rolled out from the Company’s Gurgaon plant. With this, Maruti Suzuki becomes the only Indian car company that makes its entry into the select club of automobile manufacturers across the globe who have crossed this milestone. 

Starting with the handing over to the first Maruti 800 to the first customer in December 1983, the company produced the millionth car in 1994. The cumulative production reached Two million in 1997. The next big landmark of five million was reached in April 2005, almost 22 years after the first car was rolled out.

Big day for Maruti Suzuki. Thoughts, complaints? Speak out in the comments below.
