Mumbai, Dec 24: Maruti Suzuki, car maker, said on Wednesday, Dec 24 that the company had plans of cutting production costs if the markets did not improve. The company has been negotiating contract manufacturing deal for its A-Star model with Nissan. It is expecting to start exports for the Japanese car maker by around February-March next year. Maruti Suzuki India Managing Director Shinzo Nakanishi said that across the world there has been a slowdown in demand, including China, India and other BRIC countries.

"I hope not but if we are obliged then we will do it," he told reporters here when asked if the company would go for a production cut.

On the company's planned export of the A-Star for Nissan, an agreement on the volume has not been signed as yet but shipment to Europe is "expected by about February-March next year," he said.

"Our focus is on the network stocks. If the network stock is overflowing, then the company would take appropriate measure," he added.
