In the factory in Rayong province, Suzuki Celerio is designed to serve the needs of its target groups, which are the customers in working age and students. To ensure the joy of driving, we’ve brought the new standard to this segment by offering spacious passenger compartment and cost efficiency. In addition to its success in Thai market, Suzuki Celerio expands its export to Asian and European market and is especially well received in Europe. This is such a great pride for Suzuki because the cars that meet the international standard are produced by Thai people. Furthermore, being globally accepted is a chance to expand the distribution channel and generate income for the country.”

The Company also aims to annually export about 30,000 cars to Europe. In response to eco-car project, Suzuki will increase its capacity to 100,000 cars per year in 2016.

Furthermore, the Company aims to increase the showrooms to 100 across the country within 2014.
