Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest car-maker, which forayed into the light commercial vehicle (LCV) segment with Super Carry will launch the model across the country in phases. The pan-India roll out of the Super Carry will happen in the next financial year.
Maruti will initially launch the LCV in Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Ludhiana, Haryana and Rajasthan. The company will roll out more numbers after gauging the response, ET Auto reported. Maruti is also looking to set up a separate retail network for Super Carry. The company will initially have 50 dealers to sell Super Carry in the five places.
Super Carry is powered by a 793cc, twin-cylinder diesel engine that develops 32bhp at 3500rpm and maximum torque of 75Nm at 2000rpm mated to five-speed manual transmission. The company claims that the LCV will return 22.07 kmpl of mileage and has a maximum speed of 80 kmph.
It measures 3800mm in length, 1562mm in width, 1868mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2110mm. It comes with a payload capacity of 740 kg and ground clearance of 160mm. The vehicle is available in Superior White and Silky Silver colours only.
The LCV has been priced at Rs. 4.01 lakh, Rs. 4.11 and Rs. 4.03 lakh Ludhiana, Kolkata and Ahmedabad respectively. The Super Carry, which rivals Tata Ace, Mahindra Gio, Ashok Leyland Dost and Piaggio Porter in India, is currently being manufactured at Maruti's Gurgaon plant.
