Smile New E3 M800 Launched.

All M800 fans rejoice!!

Maruti has launched a new version of india's max selling car, the M800.

The new car will have a 32bit ECU to meet the Euro 3 emission norms. Plus the usual cosmetic maruti changes and a price hike of 4.4%.

Cheers
Amitoj

Dunno abt the power output, Satya. It will probably be same as the Euro II M800.

That is not just slightly but absolutely dissappointing... when are people at MUL going to start upgrading to better safety standards adopt newer technologies on cars ... its high time they stop selling their vehicles just by changing the head/tail lamps... they are just upgrading cosmetics and nothing else...

Indeed, it is a disgrace that such an obsolete and unsafe vehicle is still being sold. MUL is selling it for the sole puprpose of laughing all the way to the bank. I'm sure they have higher profit margins on the M800 than on newer models like the WagonR.

ECM is the acronym for Electronic Control Module. This is the brain of the MPFI system. It controls the amount of fuel to be injected into the engine and the ignition timing based on the inputs received from various sensors. It consists of a micro computer analog to digital converter.


previuosly 16-ecm was used ,but now 32-bit will be used.A 32 bit ECM has been put in the car for faster processing of data for more precise control of various parameters.

ideally speaking it should, but how much usefull it'll be on M800 isa doubtfull.. c the more powerfull(i.e. bits) the faster the processing & hence more ignition maps/curves can be put on the ECM & more the maps/curves better will be the mileage & performance of the car.
