Maruti Suzuki India announced the launch of its 250th Commercial Showroom in Dehradun. The company's commercial vehicle channel is now present in 193 cities. The light commercial vehicle segment has done very well for Maruti Suzuki's sales in India in October 2018. The company has only one commercial vehicle - the Super Carry on offer. In October 2018, Maruti Suzuki sold 2152 units of the Super Carry which showed a growth of 146 per cent for the company when compared to the same period last year.
In just 24 months of its launch, the Super Carry has crossed 20,000 sales across India. While the first 10,000 sales took 18 months, the next 10,000 came just in a span of little over six months. The Super Carry is powered by a 2-cylinder turbo-charged 793 cc diesel engine and an all-new 1200 cc CNG engine variant.
R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, "Within the LCV segment, the mini truck segment comprises close to a third of the sales. It has been growing at a CAGR of 21% during the last four years. Super Carry has been developed specifically for India, keeping in mind the unique requirements of the Indian mini truck customer. The Company's Commercial Channel is the fastest growing channel in India and is amply supported by the extensive Maruti Suzuki Service network. This enables our customer to always be on the move in life and in business."
This festive season, Maruti Suzuki is offering discounts on the Super Carry too. Including an exchange bonus and a cash based customer offer, buyers can avail a discount of upto Rs 40,000 on the Super Carry.
