Bhargava said that the company’s fourth unit will kick off the production by the end of 2017 and will facilitate the auto maker to increase its exports to Middle East and Europe.

Both of these units are helping the company to remain parallel with the demand of domestic buyers and exports as well. However, with new sights for expanding the production capacity indicates that the popularity and demand for MSIL vehicles is not just increasing in the Indian auto market, but also in rest of the world.
