The Suzuki Swift, New Zealand’s best selling small car, has achieved an international milestone. Production of the most successful car ever produced by Suzuki recently topped the one million barrier and continues to increase. The Swift surpassed the one million level three years and eight months after the first unit rolled off the line in Japan.

A truly world car, the compact hatchback is built not only in Japan, but also in Hungary, China, India and more recently Indonesia and Malaysia. Swift production for the New Zealand market is sourced from Japan where 361,676 of the first million units were produced.

Year to date sales of new Swifts in New Zealand are up 37 per cent compared to the same period in 2007. The Swift is third best selling new car overall in year to date sales.
Swift has been a major factor in Suzuki realising record sales in New Zealand, and the model is on target to exceed 3,000 units in 2008.

Inspired by European design and driving manners, the Swift has been a hit in every market where it is sold.

Soon after the launching in Japan home market sales figures for the model were twice original forecasts.

More than 306,000 of the current generation Swift have been built at the Suzuki plant in Hungary which supplies most of the European markets. More than 37,000 Swifts have been sold in the United Kingdom and demand for the model has boomed in India where local production has topped 241,000 and the car has been a best seller.
