Japanese car maker Suzuki will produce only cars fitted with hybrid engines from this year for EU markets at its plant in Esztergom (N Hungary), the company told MTI on Monday.
Communications chief Zsuzsanna Bonnár-Csonka said Suzuki had invested millions of euros in preparations for launching the new hybrid models.
As a result, hybrid models will account for 70 percent of the Esztergom plant’s output in 2020.
Some 85 percent of the vehicles will be exported.
Magyar Suzuki employs 3,200 workers. It had revenue of 1.95 billion euros in 2018, including domestic revenue of 280.4 million euros.
