Maruti Suzuki is one of the largest auto exporters in the country. The company registered its highest-ever exports in the 2022 calendar year with 2.6 lakh vehicles shipped overseas. The automaker aims to strengthen its position further in passenger vehicle exports. Maruti's major competition comes from Hyundai with respect to exports. The Korean auto giant exports 1.48 lakh units in CY2022, growing by 13.7 per cent year-on-year.

Maruti's exports are set to grow further with at least two new launches confirmed to join the stable soon. The Jimny 5-door and the Fronx are both global models as much as they are intended for India. Both offerings are expected to arrive in the next few months with the Fronx likely to arrive by April and the Jimny by May-June this year. The Jimny and Fronx will be sold by the premium Nexa dealerships.
