It is probably one of the worst kept secrets that Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest car-maker is getting ready to foray into the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) segment with its new Super Carry Turbo. And now it looks like the company is all set to launch the model in the country as emerging reports indicate that the Super Carry Turbo LCV has started arriving at the dealerships of Maruti.
The Super Carry LCV, which is popularly known by its codename Y9T, has been snapped at a dealership stockyard by OverDrive, hinting at an imminent launch. As we have known for some time, Maruti's first LCV Super Carry will get the company's indigenously developed 800cc, two-cylinder diesel engine, which also powers the new Celerio diesel model.
In Celerio, the diesel mill has the capacity to generate 47bhp of power and 125Nm of torque. The Super Carry is also likely to get CNG variant, which would be powered by 1200cc engine that can churn out 35bhp of power with a mileage of about 35kmpl.
According to the original publisher of the spy shots, the Super Carry is likely to be launched in India in a phased manner.
It was reported earlier that Maruti Super Carry will produce only 80,000 units of the LCV in the first year at its Gurgaon plant and will expand the production later after evaluating the response from the market. Maruti's LCV will rival the likes of Tata Ace and Mahindra Maxximo in India.
