Maruti to expand sales network for 'Super Carry' LCV

The country’s largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) plans to expand the sales network for its light commercial vehicle ‘Super Carry’ as it aims to be a significant player in the segment.

The company, which launched ‘Super Carry’ in September 2016, is seeing good traction in the light commercial vehicle (LCV) segment that is dominated by players like Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra.

“The retail network is being rolled out in phases. Currently ‘Super Carry’ is being retailed through 162 new commercial outlets in 140 cities across 25 states. It is our endeavour to reach closer to customers as much as possible,” an MSI spokesperson told.

“We plan to be present across India at all potential locations…We will plan as we move ahead based on customers need and market requirements,” the spokesperson said.

MSI has established a new commercial sales channel for the LCV business.

MSI sold 900 units of ‘Super Carry’ in 2016-17. In the April-December period of the current fiscal, it has already sold 5,958 units.

“More units of ‘Super Carry’ have been sold than some of its competitors during the second and third quarters of 2017- 18,” the spokesperson said.

MSI rolls out ‘Super Carry’ from its Gurgaon facility.
