Volkswagen and Suzuki became partners

Concern Volkswagen and the Japanese company Suzuki Motor signed an agreement about strategical partnership. As Gazeta. Ru reported, the partnership started from output of new compact car. The model range of every manufacturer will be enlarged by new model of small capacity, which will be constructed at common platform. Before Suzuki had an agreement about production of such car together with GM. However after the procedure of bankruptcy of GM, this agreement was liquidated. Suzuki Motor needed a new partner. On account of this union VW will get access to rather closed Japanese market, - supposes the analyst of Okasan Securities Yasuaki Ivamoto. According to opinion of the Japanese specialist, Suzuki Motor needs investments for development of the model range and technologies.
As the German edition Manager Magazin reported, Volkswagen reckons on getting 10% of shares of Suzuki instead of money means.
Foreign experts estimate positively the outlooks of joint production. At the majority of young markets of Japan Suzuki is popular on account of high rate of sales of small cars. So, the Japanese compact cars constitute over a half of all sold cars in India. This number includes a small hatch back Swift and a small SUV Jimmy. WagonR and Carry became bestsellers of Suzuki at domestic market. In Japan only Toyota is leaving behind Suzuki by number of sold compact cars. In opinion of experts, asked by Bloomberg, Suzuki is one of few Japanese companies, which will finish the financial year with proceeds.
Volkswagen is one of manufacturers, which have almost not suffered of the current economical crisis. Despite the fact that sales and proceeds of the car manufacturer decreased, its share of sales at global markets and cost of shares are growing. Since the end of 2008 VW is constantly on the third place by number of sold cars in the world. It is left behind only by Toyota and GM. After restructuring of the last VW, on totals of the current year, VW may become the second car manufacturer in the world.
