Maruti Suzuki said in a statement: “Due to semiconductor shortages resulting in limited supply of electronic components, the company expects that Haryana and its contract manufacturing company Suzuki Motors will be adversely affected in September car production. Gujarat Pvt. Ltd. (SMG) is located in Gujarat. Although the situation is very dynamic, it is currently estimated that the total vehicle production at the two locations may be about 40% of the normal production.”

Maruti Suzuki India’s two plants in Gurgaon and Manesar in Haryana have a total capacity of 15,80,000 vehicles, while the Suzuki Motor Gujarat plant has a capacity of 5,000 vehicles. This adds up to slightly more than 2 million units (20,800,000) per year. Together, the monthly output of these three factories is estimated to be slightly higher than 1,73,000 units.
