Maruti Alto 800 new small car launch next month
The Indian auto sector has been witnessing falling sales due to high interest rates, rising fuel prices and hard-hitting market conditions, which have made auto companies sit up and take notice. MSIL are banking on their new Alto 800 to boost sales for the company’s small car segment which has suffered falling sales in the period April to August 2012. During this time, sales of Alto have declined by 34.83% to 89,000 units as compared to 1.22 lakh units sold in the same period in 2011.
MSIL is hopeful that their upcoming Alto 800 will attract its fair share of customers specially due to the fact that it offers improved fuel efficiency of 22.74 kmpl which is 15% higher than the Alto. Besides this increased cabin space, improved gear shift and a brand new design should also appeal to buyers.
