Default Re: Maruti Suzuki's mini pick up truck plans

MSIL is likely to launch the Carry-based mini truck by Jan-2015. It will be produced in the company's Gurgaon plant instead of a new plant in Gujarat which is now expected to start production in 2016-17.

Excerpts from http://www.livemint.com/Companies/F5...-Jan-2015.html

By advancing the introduction of the mini-truck, Maruti hopes it will be able to catch up with the more-established companies in the segment.
“We want to encash the existing and future potential in the mini-truck segment without losing any time,” said a person directly involved in the matter.
This will be sold as commercial goods carrier with carrying capacity not exceeding 2 tonnes. Maruti does not plan to replicate the same as a passenger carrier, even though Tata Motors’s Iris, a passenger carrier in the light commercial vehicle (LCV) segment, has been permitted to be sold as a passenger vehicle as well.
“Assembly of a completely new transmission has begun,” said another person familiar with the matter. “Pre-production trials and assembly sampling of at least 100 units should begin in a few months.”
The new product will be available with two engines—an 800cc diesel engine and a 1,200cc compressed natural gas (CNG) engine. The diesel engine will be Suzuki’s first ever and is being developed together by Maruti Suzuki and Suzuki Motor.

"The Y9T’s cabin appears to be a modified Suzuki Ravi (Omni-based pickup sold in Pakistan)."

Shame on you, Maruti! To bring a mini truck based on Omni! The idea of bringing a mini truck itself will ruin Maruti's image in car buyers' mind. And now this mini truck based on an Omni!

Maruti, please get out of the idea of bringing a mini truck to compete with Ace and the likes.
