Maruti Suzuki launches new Alto K10 as India's cheapest automatic car

New Delhi, Nov 04 (ANI): Maruti Suzuki, which sells almost one in two cars in India, is betting a new version of its bestselling model will help it retain a stranglehold on the budget market, even as it courts wealthier buyers to fend off a slowdown in sales. Maruti unveiled a new version of its entry-level Alto - India's most popular car last year- with automatic gear shift technology, a feature usually reserved for pricier cars in the Indian market. At Rupees 3.06 lakh, the Alto K10 is the Indian market's cheapest automatic car - a position previously held by Maruti's compact sedan Celerio at about Rupees 410,000. Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Kenichi Ayukawa, said Alto K10 is the company's best selling brand in Indian markets. Maruti Suzuki is preparing for what it has said will be a period of slower sales in the coming months. Sales of Maruti's passenger cars fell 1.1 percent in October from a year ago, breaking five consecutive months of increase. Nov 4, 2014

Maruti Suzuki India Limited says car sales growth cooling

New Delhi, Oct 31 (ANI): India's biggest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India Limited said the growth in car sales will be slow in the second half of the year, dampening expectations of a rapid recovery in the country's automotive market. Maruti's Chairman RC Bhargava said sales momentum was now slowing, and growth over the 2014-2015 financial year would average out at about 10 percent. Indian car makers are launching new and upgraded models of their cars, betting on improved consumer sentiment and an economic recovery under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's new government. To fend off competition from rivals such as Honda Motor Co and Hyundai Motor Co, Maruti plans to launch new and upgraded models of its cars over the next 12 months, including in the premium segment where it has had little success in the past.
