Maruti Suzuki Celerio AMT waiting period 5 months, without AMT delivery in 1 month
Waiting period for the much acclaimed Maruti Suzuki Celerio AMT is now at five months. Launched in February this year, the Celerio AMT shot to immediate fame. The company reportedly took total bookings of upto 1000 per day.
Maruti Suzuki Celerio launched at Auto Expo last month receives its Automated Manual Transmission gearbox from Magneto Marelli. The company clocked 1000 bookings per month and though it had earlier anticipated 25-30% for the AMT variant, the company registered 51% booking of this variant. Local assembly of the AMT unit is slated to commence next month and this is what will bring down waiting period for the AMT variant.
Another reason for its major attraction is the fact that unlike other automatic offerings, the price variation between Manual and Automatic variant of the Celerio is just INR 1 – 1.2 lakhs. The Celerio was launched at INR 3.90 lakhs and is now offered at INR 3.76 lakhs as the company revised prices following the recent announcements of reduction in excise duty in the interim budget. AMT LXi and VXi are on sale for INR 4.14 lakhs and INR 4.43 lakhs respectively.
