Jimny Exports Start, India launch in 2021 to Rival Thar
Breaking - Maruti Jimny Make in India Exports Begin, India launch in 2021 to Rival Mahindra Thar?
One of the biggest known mysteries has to be the fact that the Jimny (New Gypsy) is coming to India or not. However now, Maruti has at-least officially confirmed that it is making the Jimny for India even though it is not for the Indian market currently. Maruti Suzuki has started exports of the Jimny to other countries like Peru and Columbia. The first lot of 184 Jimny SUVs have been exported and more countries will get the made in India Jimny. Made at Maruti Suzuki’s Gurugram plant, the Jimny is built to the same specs as the car made at the Japan plant. The reason why the Jimny is made here is to leverage the production base that Maruti has in India plus to reduce the demand pressure that the Jimny has.
While the Jimny being exported is the left hand drive variant, the question is when India gets the Jimny? Not right now as India will get the 5-door version as that will make it a more practical choice. The international spec Jimny with the 3-door model would be too impractical as the car would cost from Rs 10 lakh onwards.
In India the Jimny would be having the same 1.5l petrol and maybe the new BS6 1.5l diesel cause by the time the Jimny comes, Maruti will anyways have a 1.5l diesel in its range. We expect the Jimny 5-door by 2022 only with features like climate control, steering controls plus a standard 4x4 system. The new Jimny would compete with the Mahindra Thar in India as even Mahindra is readying its 5-door version of the Thar.
