3.5 million Suzuki models were manufactured in about 30 years at the Esztergom (NW of Budapest) plant of the Hungarian subsidiary of the Japanese company – and sold to people in 123 countries.

The international automotive company has come a long way in Hungary from its 1991’s beginnings to the jubilee reached recently, having been the first company to bring car production back to Hungary after half a century, and becoming the 10th largest company in the country for today.

Magyar Suzuki says the 3.5 millionth car was a hybrid version from the audience-favorite Vitara model. The company is producing exclusively Vitara and SX4 S-CROSS models equipped with the new 48V ISG technology for the European Union countries including Hungary in 2020.

The 3.5 millionth model rolling down the production line recently in Esztergom - Suzuki’s third-largest plant after Japan and India – was a snow-white, hybrid-powered Vitara. The most Esztergom made vehicles were Vitaras, followed by SX4 S-CROSS-es, with first-generation Swifts – Suzuki’s first home-made model – on the third stage of the podium during the nearly 30 years of existence of Magyar Suzuki Corporation. Of the 3.5 million Hungarian Suzukis made so far at the Esztergom plant, a great number run on the roads of the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, or Vanuatu located in the southwestern region of the Pacific Ocean, among others. In addition to domestic sales, the company served a total of 123 export markets last year with about 180,000 vehicles produced. 88% of the total production was for export.
"Such a milestone is always a great celebration for us, and all our employees have a role to play in this success. In addition, we have several colleagues who have been involved in the production of all the 3.5 million Suzukis, either working by the production line or in the office,” Yoshinobu Abe, managing director of Magyar Suzuki Corporation said on the occasion of the significant event.

Magyar Suzuki produced 1,000 vehicles in 1992, and today, an average of approximately 700 cars rolls off the production line in two shifts per day. Iconic models such as the three generations of the Swift (1992, 2005, 2010), the Wagon R+: Hungary's first minivan (2000), the Ignis (2003), the SX4 (2006), the Splash (2008), the SX4 S-CROSS (2013), or the most popular model to date: the Vitara (2015) left the Esztergom factory during this time.
