The Hungarian car industry and Magyar Suzuki Corporation has reached a significant anniversary in 2021. After a 50-year hiatus, car production revived in Hungary in the spring of 1991. About 3.6 million Suzuki cars were made in Esztergom since the company’s foundation three decades ago. If we lined up so many cars in a row, we would get from Suzuki in Esztergom to the Hamamatsu plant of the Japanese parent company. Moreover, we could also start our journey back. So far, Vitara has been manufactured in the highest volume. The 3.5 millionth Suzuki also became a hybrid version of the crowd-favorite model last year. Magyar Suzuki started series production of hybrid vehicles in December 2019. From January 2020 onwards, the company is selling hybrid cars in the European Union markets.
A new Managing Director will take over Magyar Suzuki Corporation, Masato Atsumi replaces Yoshinobu Abe on 1 May, who will continue his career in the Global Automobile Marketing Division of Suzuki Motor Corporation.
It is a huge success in the history of Magyar Suzuki Corporation that Suzuki Vitara also won the first prize and the audience prize of the Hungarian Car of the Year competition announced for the second time by the Motorist Great-Coalition and Járműipar.hu. 22 brands submitted their 48 nominations for the competition, and all the three domestic car manufacturers nominated cars for the award this year.
