As the deadline for the implementation of BSVI emission norms is looming large, India’s top car manufacturer Maruti is all set to come up with the BSVI-compliant version of its top-selling car Alto. Maruti Suzuki is preparing to deal with one of the biggest challenges that it will soon be facing in its 37-year dominant run in passenger car market in India.
Maruti Suzuki Alto has created a new milestone by selling 35 lakh cars in 2017-18 breaking its own record both in wholesale and retail. Now, the company is also working on building a future-oriented variant of its top-selling Alto car by enabling it with BSVI compatibility.
The Indo-Japanese car manufacturer has already started working on turning its workhorse, the 800 & K10 of Maruti Suzuki Alto, into BSVI-compliant machines. Maruti Alto is currently available in two versions - Alto 800 & Alto K10 and the said variant is expected to hit the market before 2020. RS Kalsi, the senior executive director of Maruti Suzuki, said, “The BSVI version of the Alto would be ready well before the (April) 2020 deadline.”
