Maruti Restarts Selling LPG WagonR in Old Version
Advertisement
#1
After launching the new generation WagonR in April, the company had discontinued the ‘Duo’ variant of the old WagonR, which had both petrol and LPG options. And now, MSI has restarted the sales of the LPG variant in the old version of the model.

“We are now selling the ‘Duo’ and it will continue till the LPG variant of the new WagonR is ready. The work on new LPG is going on,” Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) Chief General Manager (Marketing) Shashank Srivastava said.

‘Duo’ was contributing about 20-22 per cent of total WagonR sales, which stood at 10,000-12,000 units a month and the LPG variant is priced at Rs 3.68 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

TWhen asked about likely timeline for launching the model, he said: “The R&D team has just started the work and it is unlikely that the LPG variant will be ready in this fiscal.”

Meanwhile, the company will launch the factory-fitted CNG version of WagonR in this month. Along with, four other models - Alto, Estilo, Eeco and SX4 - will be launched on a single day in the second week of the month.

Earlier MSI Executive Officer (Marketing and Sales) Mayank Pareek had said the company stopped the production of the ‘Duo’ and any decision of launching the LPG variant of new WagonR would depend on market demand.
