Maruti Suzuki India’s MD Kenichi Ayukawa has urged the local parts manufacturers to start making electric components and other key auto parts in India.

He stated that developing R&D centers in India will not only bring the vehicle costs down but will also help other car manufacturers as well.

He emphasized his focus on Make-in-India and said that though setting up in-house R&D is a long process, however, it’s the local component makers who will benefit the most in the long run.
