Suzuki also informed that it has revised its annual production plan for the ongoing fiscal to about 25.79 lakh units. This is 2.99 lakh units less than initially planned. In the previous fiscal year, it manufactured about 26.51 lakh units. “The initial plan for automobile production is an in-house plan that does not take into account the effects of semiconductor shortage and Covid-19 pandemic in India," stated the company.
