Gallery: India's insane Suzuki factories
By the time you've read this story, this plant will have made 40 cars

Why don't they use the train? Two issues here: the train network isn't geared up for this sort of capacity. Also, the railway doesn't go anywhere near the Gurgaon plant. It doesn't even go to the modern Manesar factory. In China, you get the feeling that the local government would simply bulldoze a railway to the factory's front door, but India is a democracy. And in a democracy, people get a bit shouty about losing their land to a train track.
So the road it is. And congestion is the main worry for our transport friend - with 3,500 cars a day spilling out of the Gurgaon factory, and a car park with a capacity of just 5,000, things could get sticky very quickly.
