This can't be good for Suzuki in the US. I doubt we will know the full story about this.

Actually, the headline is wrong!

The article states that Suzuki is closing an office in China, not a plant.

Looks to me like they are moving a lot of production to India - the new China! Labor is cheaper there and it is an emerging industrial nation now. Could be a good move for Suzuki.

However the Kizashi isn't selling as well as expected. That is the main cause for concern. As I stated we don't know the full story here. That can't be the reasons.
