Default Maruti Dealer @ Kerala delivers 200 Alto 800s together!

AM Motors, a Maruti Suzuki dealer, delivered a record 200 newly launched Alto 800s in Malappuram District, near Calicut (Kerala). This is the first time in India that so many cars are being delivered to 200 customers at the same time.

Great! I guess this kind of start is a good hint for Alto 800's sales. 200 deliveries and the entire staff must be on the toes in arranging the documents and keys

Excellent ,more details on this will be helpful.

Wasn't there a Mercedes record in punjab 2 years back?

Amazing work.
Kudos to the dealer and Maruti achieving such an epic feat.

Hope such good times carry on with India's favorite car maker.

@joshguy : Such an event would definitely need co-ordination between Maruti, AM Motors (dealer) and all the related customers. Definitely preplanned event.

You can see the Kerala State Minister of Industries in the last photograph. Need I say more?
Further Kerala has always been a happy hunting ground for the small car major.

That's a wonderful achievement. Kudos to Maruti and AM Motors for conceptualising an idea and making sure it is successful.

Does this qualify for the Guinness Book of World Records? Something tells me this is just the beginning of many such mass deliveries in future.

New Alto800 is more of a brainy product appealing more to a practical buyer than who buys with a heart alone.
A much appealing option to buyer with very limited budget & more aspirations, afterall there's no other competitor even in its nearby price band.
A best time for DATSUN to jump soon in the market to take on the rivals.

Another Kerala dealer - KVR at Kasargod to deliver 111 Alto 800's today!


Quote:
The company is now ready to create a second record by delivering 111 cars on a single day, this time through a dealership named KVR at Kasargod, again in Kerala.
According to the industry estimates, around 13,000 new Maruti Alto 800s have already been delivered and the states Kerela, Assam and Punjab account for the major chunk of orders. Itís believed that the these states have more first time buyers than in metros like Mumbai and Delhi, where the Alto 800 is bought by many as a second car.

The Alto has always been Kerala's favourite small car. Before the car boom, it was a norm to see a Kinetic Honda as the primary mode of transport in most houses, which soon got upgraded to the Alto. With the improvements on the Alto 800 (front looks not withstanding!) this is sure to be another hit in the state.

The dealer may have co-ordinated all his deliveries to arrive at this number of deliveries at a time.
