Maruti cars Dzire and Swift diesel out of stock: No insurance for loss of car production
Maruti Suzuki India Limited have insurance claims to just Rs.5 crores damages to plant. But with production at a complete halt, Maruti is losing Rs…
This will prove costly for the company which is already battling with lock out at the company plant in Manesar following last Wednesday’s riot and mayhem. Insurers have sent their surveyors to the site to assess damage to property, but company sources have confirmed that the cover does not include losses incurred due to interruptions in business.
While Maruti Suzuki is going under stormy weather, other auto companies are reveling in the sunshine. Companies like Hyundai, are stepping up production and instigating dealers to initiate sales. Hyundai is pushing forth sales such as their i20 and Verna models while Maruti Swift and Dzire waiting periods are extended indefinitely.
Hyundai has stated that higher incentives will be paid to dealers selling i20 and Verna. Skoda Auto too revealed that there would be benefits seen to their brands like Skoda Fabia due to the situation in Manesar while Ford India is also banking on delays on the part of Maruti Suzuki to ensure better sales of their products.
