Default BS6 Maruti Suzuki Eeco launched at Rs 3.81 lakh, crosses 6.5 lakh sales over last decade

BS6 Maruti Suzuki Eeco launched at Rs 3.81 lakh, crosses 6.5 lakh sales over last decade-marutieecobs6launchpriceindia3.jpg

Maruti Suzuki has introduced its ninth BS6-compliant vehicle in India – the Eeco. Prices for the BS6 Eeco start at Rs 3.81 lakh and go up to Rs 4.21 lakh for the 5-seater AC model, which represents a Rs 20,000-30,000 hike, depending on the variant. These prices are for the petrol variants only as Maruti Suzuki has yet to release prices for the CNG version.
Quote:
BS6 Maruti Suzuki Eeco is available in 12 variants. They include 5-seater, 7-seater, cargo and ambulance options. Convenience features include reclining seats, clear headlamps, CNG changeover switch, multi-trip meter, and headlamp leveling.

Mr. Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “At Maruti Suzuki, we are committed to provide reliable mobility solutions to our customers. Introduction of the BS6 in Eeco will further bolster our commitment towards a cleaner environment. A decade since its launch, Eeco continues to attract 84% pre-determined buyers, and has been appreciated for its stylish and spacious design and low cost of maintenance. With over 50% of the consumers choosing the vehicle for business utility as well as a family transport vehicle, the versatile Eeco offers uncompromised comfort and safety. We are confident to sustain a strong foothold in the segment with Eeco and would like to thank our customers for their constant support.”

Found something hilarious on Maruti website for Eeco. They have listed safety features under 'Regulation' (instead of SAFETY)

That's RC Bhargava saying "Sorry folks, we had to equip Eeco with ABS, airbag etc. Can't help it. Govt regulation"

Thatís how a market leader should be. Kudos to Maruti for being extremely honest. Hope other manufacturers too follow the path laid by Maruti.

Never thought this thing sells in 5 digits.
Overshadowed by popularity of Omni, Eeco never caught my attention except when getting deceived in the highway. What is supposed to be a slug surprises with zippy overtaking and you know it’s not Omni.

PS: I was thinking what low budget van would be suitable to be modified as a camper van, I guess Eeco is a decent candidate in terms of space and reliability.

This is just smart marketing. It is targeted at the buyers who want to be sure that their investment complies with regulation.

They are not marketing the safety aspect, but the fact that the car complies with the government paperwork.

Another hilarious thing found on their website, despite not giving proper headrest they highlighted integrated headrest as a special interior feature!

PS: Regarding safety, only buyers could bring Maruti to terms by denying to buy MS products, and that's never happening. As long as people keep buying their cars in good numbers, they will never care to care about user's safety and life. Ruthless business.
