Live Mint reported that Toyota Motor Corp has agreed to produce Suzuki Motor Corp.’s cars to utilize the idle capacity at its Bengaluru factory, widening the alliance between the two companies in India. Three people familiar with the matter said that the decision was taken after discussions between the two Japanese auto makers.

The people said that Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd, the local unit, is currently studying the feasibility of making Suzuki cars at its second factory on the outskirts of Bengaluru, the people cited above said on condition of anonymity. The study would also help decide on the Suzuki models that would be produced by Toyota.

If Toyota goes ahead with the plan, the company will be able to boost capacity utilization at its second factory, said the people cited above. That plant currently produces the Etios Liva and Etios cars, whose sales have remained lacklustre.
