With the success of cars in a key market like Mexico, the company can further increase its scope of export to other countries in the near future, he added.

'The primary focus of the company has been on the domestic market in India. However, with the decision to enter export markets, we have put our operations here in India on a broader and economically sustainable base,' Goransch said.
