Its good news!
Hope that this will revive the falling sales of 800 and it will make a lot of people afford a car that is cheaper to run relatively.

Can you give the excat date and the specifications ( if at all there are changes ) ?

I'm pretty sure JK's seen an 800 with the tank.I guess he wanted to know if the tank's design was going to be different,and it would be fitted in a segment other than the boot.

Why the eff can Maruti not deliver the dZire instead?

800 with LPG will have decent powerloss.

I am using M800 since last 6-7 years and find existing boot space is not sufficient for the family of 2 even for holiday trips.
With this modification they will ruin that space even.

But why M-800? Hope the ad doesn't end with an "ALL NEW M800" tag!

They could have achieved better results had the same been done on an Alto. After the success of WagonR Duo, that would have made more sense.

I feel they are just trying to extract the maximum out of the M800 before it goes out of production.

And now more peopel can afford using the car ( as far spending on fuel is considered ) as the car will be LPG.

The Wagon R has the tank where usually the stepney is kept. And the stepney is kept separate in the luggage area. 800 might will follow the same method.
