India's largest carmaker, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, on Tuesday rolled out its 10 millionth car, a blue Wagon-R. Celebrations were muted on account of the tsunami devastation in Japan, the home country of its parent company Suzuki.

Maruti became the only company in India to achieve this feat, and joined a select club of global car makers including Toyota, General Motors, Ford, Volkswagen, Honda and Suzuki.

"As we reach this historic landmark, we thank our founding partners who laid a solid foundation of values and practices," said Shinzo Nakanishi, MD and CEO, MSIL.

Maruti's stock took a battering at Bombay Stock Exchange on tsunami worries, dipping 3.6%.
