Maruti Alto 800 Crosses 6000 Pre-Launch Bookings
Maruti Suzuki has bagged 6000 pre-launch booking orders for the eagerly awaited Maruti Alto 800. Bookings for the small car have opened on October 1 after Maruti launched a web page (www.marutisuzukialto800.com/). On the site, those interested can complete all the details and pre-book the car, with deliveries expected to start during the Diwali holidays.
Looking at the response, the company believes that 10,000 bookings before the car’s official launch is very much possible.
The new Maruti Alto 800 is more fuel efficient than the outgoing variant and has been developed at an investment of Rs 470 crores and is based on the same platform seen on the earlier Alto which was launched 12 years ago. The current model will offer fuel efficiency of 22.74 kmpl which is enhanced by 15% as compared to the previous model while it will sport improved gear shift and additional space in rear passenger cabin. Once launched, MSIL hopes to have a production schedule of 800 cars per day.
