Introduction –
Suzuki Motor Corporation (Japanese: スズキ株式会社, Hepburn: Suzuki Kabushiki-Kaisha) is a Japanese multinational corporation headquartered in Minami-ku, Hamamatsu. Suzuki manufactures automobiles, four-wheel drive vehicles, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), outboard marine engines, wheelchairs and a variety of other small internal combustion engines. In 2016, Suzuki was the eleventh biggest automaker by production worldwide. Suzuki has over 45,000 employees and has 35 production facilities in 23 countries, and 133 distributors in 192 countries. The worldwide sales volume of automobiles is the world’s tenth largest, while domestic sales volume is the third largest in the country.
View / Review –
Suzuki Canada Inc. will end its 30-year run of selling vehicles in Canada next year, the final withdrawal of Suzuki Motor Corp. from markets it once thought so important that it manufactured vehicles here.
The trigger for Suzuki’s move out of Canada – although it will still sell motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and marine products – was the U.S. Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by its sister company, American Suzuki Motor Corp., last November.
Suzuki will join Pontiac, Saturn, Hummer, Mercury, Plymouth and Daewoo on the list of brands that have disappeared from new-car lots in recent years. Its demise is likely to give a modest boost to other Asian manufacturers such as Hyundai and Toyota.
It is all but impossible for auto makers to sell vehicles only in Canada because this market represents only 10 per cent of U.S. sales and is simply not large enough for global auto makers to sustain operations on a go-it-alone basis.
The revenue from selling about 5,500 vehicles, as Suzuki did in Canada last year, do not come close to covering the costs of designing and developing vehicles for a market this size, along with meeting regulatory requirements that are different than those of the company’s other large markets such as Japan and India.
Data Collection –
For testing the likes of Suzuki cars a survey was conducted where 30 users were asked to fill a simple survey questionnaire where they were asked to rate their favorite Suzuki car.
