If Baleno was sold through regular dealership, for sure it will clock 15K plus. Even now only Bangalore and Mangalore is having NEXA in Karanataka(as per NEXA website).This is same across other states as well. So, Ciaz which is a segment above to Baleno, will struggle to bring the current numbers if sold through NEXA.

I would suspect a fourth of the total Ciaz sales is to govt agencies as I see lot of them with 'Govt of India' or 'Govt of STATE' markings.

Of course, I would not mention the number here.
That is very true! And that is what I want to exactly mean when I say "Ciaz isnt slow". If you have a safe environment to check Ciaz diesel's top end, you can almost close the speedo, almost!

To be more clear, the ciaz has a top end that is just lesser by 5-10 kmph than the Vento 1.6/ Polo GT 1.6 (personally experienced).

To be noted is that at those speeds, Ciaz is NOT as planted or as confidence inspiring as the VW twins.

I was wondering if it is a possibility that a hybrid+automatic variant can be launched? I am in the market for a car and want to beat the odd/even ban if it occurs in Mumbai (even if at a future date) and this would be the only way to do it !

Wonder if its just the cost consideration that may have prevented the manufacturers from offering this or it can be something else too?
