Company might boost production capacity.

DaimlerChrysler is considering boosting its production capacity in India, a company spokesman said on Nov. 8. Such a move was being examined, but a definitive decision had not yet been taken, the spokesman said.

Indian press reports have suggested that DaimlerChrysler was considering building a second assembly hall at its plant in Pune in Maharashtra. The move would represent an investment of $55 million.

DaimlerChrysler has been active in India since 1994. It builds more than 2,000 of its C, E and S-Class Mercedes cars in Pune each year.

India is one of the fastest-growing car markets, but demand there is primarily for smaller cars.
