Maruti Super Carry LCV (codename Y9T) to launch in May 2015
Maruti Suzuki is known for its expansive sales & service network, covering even the kind of rural regions where any car is considered a luxury. With all the goodwill and customer base the company has earned all these years, not to mention the general tag of ‘most affordable to buy & to maintain’ it’s products are pinned with, the country’s largest carmaker will step into the world of commercial vehicles in May, with codename Y9T now known as Maruti Super Carry as its debutant.
The company has plans to produce 1 lakh units of Maruti Super Carry LCVs per annum, but it will be starting with around 7,000 units per month. The LCV will be sold and serviced through new dedicated dealerships that are being setup.
The Tata Ace and Mahindra Maxximo rival will be powered by Maruti’s all-new locally developed two-cylinder 800 cc diesel engine, which should churn out around 35 PS max power, to carry payload of about 750 kg. CNG variant of Maruti Super Carry with 1.2 litre engine will be launch next year once the LCV market picks up from current slowdown.
