Why the Suzuki Jimny Being Sold in Vietnam Is Imported from Japan and India

 According to Suzuki, the "mini G-Class" Jimny will not be produced in Southeast Asia because demand is not high enough.

Suzuki Jimny is a car model suitable for compact off-roaders, both 3-door and 5-door variants are of interest to customers. However, because it is only produced in Japan and India, the waiting time for delivery is quite long. Currently, customers who order a Suzuki Jimny 5-door in Indonesia have to wait an average of 2 months. Many people ask that Suzuki should bring the Jimny to production in Southeast Asia, but the company's opinion is different.

Mr. Joshi Prasetya - Suzuki Indonesia's strategic planning director revealed the reason the Jimny is not produced in Indonesia is because demand is not high enough. In just 3 weeks, the company received 1,800 orders for the 5-door version. This is quite a good achievement for a newly launched car model. However, even though it is a hot car model, a few thousand orders are not worth the company spending money that could amount to millions of dollars to expand capacity and build a factory.


However, based on increasing consumer interest in the Suzuki Jimny, the Japanese car company does not completely rule out the possibility of bringing production to Southeast Asia, more specifically Indonesia. It all depends on demand and actual sales of the Suzuki Jimny in the next few months.
