Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest car-maker, is all set to roll out its first Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) codenamed Y9T in India. Spied already numerous times in India, the latest spy shots emerged on the cyber space reveal new information on the LCV model, while also confirming the name of the Y9T as 'Super Carry'.
From the new spy shots by GaadiWaadi, while the front side of the LCV gets the Suzuki logo and the name badge 'Super Carry' , the rear end of the model shows the 'CNG' sticker, indicating that there will be two engine options on offer. The CNG variant of LCV is likely to get 1200cc engine that can churn out 35bhp of power with a mileage of about 35kmpl.
As we have known for some time, Maruti's LCV aka 'Super Carry' will be getting 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.
From what we have heard so far, Maruti will be producing only 80,000 units of the LCV in the first year at its Gurgaon plant and will expand the production later after evaluating the responses from the market.
Maruti's LCV will be rivalling the likes of Tata Ace and Mahindra Maxximo.
