Suzuki PH to source Jimny units from Japan again

Suzuki Jimny

Suzuki Philippines Inc. (SPH) will source its Jimny units again from Japan instead of having their examples from India.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What is the SPH's rationale in sourcing its Jimny units in Japan again?

    Based on the information given to Carmudi Philippines, the reason for getting Suzuki Jimny units in Japan again is to cut down costs in bringing the vehicles here.
  • What is the Suzuki Jimny's latest retail price in the Philippines?

    The Philippine-spec Suzuki Jimny is priced from P1.258 million up to P1.33 million.
  • Based on the information shared to Carmudi Philippines, the local distributor decided to get its supplies from the brand’s home country was not to increase the possible number of units to be shipped to local shores, but to cut down the costs in bringing it here, which, in turn, will help mitigate the possible abrupt rise of its latest sticker price.

    The source explained that getting the Suzuki Jimny vehicles from Maruti Suzuki India Limited would be much more expensive since global fuel prices drastically rose in the recent past and that the vehicle’s parts have to be shipped to India from Japan, putting additional stress on expenditures in the process.

    The aforementioned move from SPH will surely be a welcome development to purists in the country since the nameplate will be procured directly from Japan.

    To note, SPH started to have its Suzuki Jimny units in May 2021.
