New Delhi :
Maruti Suzuki India on Thursday said its light commercial vehicle Super Carry has crossed 50,000 unit sales milestone within three years of launch. Developed specifically for India, keeping in mind the unique requirements of the Indian mini truck customer, Super Carry has won widespread appreciation of customers, Maruti Suzuki India Executive Director (Marketing & Sales) Shashank Srivastava said in a statement.
“Within a short span of three years Super Carry has created a niche for itself...The second best-selling Mini-Truck in the Light Commercial Vehicle Market, Super carry has been able to create a brand name for itself,” he added.
Apart from this, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) increased its production in November by 4.33 per cent, after having reduced output for nine straight months due to lower demand. The company produced a total of 1,41,834 units in November as against 1,35,946 units in the year-ago month, MSI said in a regulatory filing.
Passenger vehicles' production last month stood at 1,39,084 units as against 1,34,149 units in November 2018, an increase of 3.67 per cent, it added.
