Suzuki’s Hungarian subsidiary has produced its two millionth car on its 20th anniversary

Suzuki’s Hungarian subsidiary Magyar Suzuki has produced its two millionth car at the company’s Esztergom plant.

The two millionth vehicle was a Suzuki Swift, driven off the production line by vice president of the Hungarian Olympic Committee Zsolt Gyulay.

The landmark figure for the company also coincided with Magyar Suzuki’s 20th anniversary.

CEO of Magyar Suzuki Hisashi Takeuchi said, "I feel privileged being the head of Magyar Suzuki when this unprecedented achievement is realised, something that we can all be really proud of".

Magyar Suzuki Corporation was established by its parent company in 1991. The first model produced was the first-generation Swift. The plant has since then produced all generations of the Swift, as well as the Wagon R, Ignis, SX4 and the Splash.

All models currently manufactured in the Esztergom plant are Euro 5-compliant.
