Maruti to export Ertiga MPV to Indonesian market through CKD route

The country’s leading car maker Maruti Suzuki India Limited has said that it is eying to export its cars to the emerging Asian countries like Thailand and Indonesia. The company announced on Tuesday that it will be taking the CKD (completely knocked-down) unit route to dispatch these cars to these foreign markets. Initially, it will be exporting the MPV Ertiga, which is yet to be launched in the Indian auto market. With exports to these new destinations in Asia, Maruti aims to become the top supplier of cars to its Japanese parent Suzuki Motors Corporation (SMC).

The exports of Maruti cars through CKD route will include the dispatch of a number of essential engine components including the part of suspension & steering, engine & transmission, wheel rim, fuel tank, brakes. These parts will be dispatched from the company Manesar based manufacturing plant.

In the Indonesian market, while the import of completely built units (CBU) of cars invites an import duty of 26 percent, the import through CKD route attracts a considerably lesser import duty of 10 percent. The Ertiga MPV will be fighting for space with the likes of Daihatsu Xenia and Toyota Avanaza.

The car will be launched in both petrol and diesel versions in India, where its diesel version is expected to receive a staggering response from the Indian buyers. The Ertiga MPV will be shelved in the price segment of Rs 7 to 8 lakh, where it will be competing with the likes of Toyota Innova, Mahindra Xylo and Tata Aria.
