Suzuki Motor Corporation and Toyota Motor Corporation officially came together in November 2017 under a partnership. The two manufacturers had been in talks since October 2016 about a collaboration.
Since then, both automotive giants have shared multiple projects with one another hoping to strive in areas including environmental technology, safety technology, information technology, and the mutual supply of products and components.
In March 2018, both names entered the Indian market with a cross-collaboration. According to the details, Toyota will manufacture Suzuki cars in India whereas Suzuki, on the other hand, will develop ultra-high-efficiency powertrains with help from Denso Corporation and Toyota.
Maruti Suzuki has geared up to introduce a new vehicle in the market called Suzuki Altis. A 1.5-litre K-Series engine with a mild hybrid system on the upcoming Ciaz facelift. Toyota is currently rumoured about planning this engine for its next-gen Corolla Altis.
According to Car Spirit, Toyota is likely to use its factory in Bangalore to manufacture Maruti Altis Hybrids.
Suzuki models would also be exported from international markets and will be sold through both Toyota’s and Suzuki’s outlets.
