Maruti Suzuki introduces CNG variant Alto, BS-VI compliant WagonR and Swift ahead of 2020 deadline
Auto major Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL) on Friday introduced a range of environment-friendly models among its popular models — Alto, Swift and WagonR, in order to comply with the upcoming BS-VI emission norm which will come to force on April 1, 2020.
The firm introduced CNG variants in its Alto model, a safety compliant Swift and a BS-VI petrol compliant model of the same and a BS-VI compliant WagonR.
The new Alto, CNG variant is priced in Delhi and NCR region at Rs 4, 10,570 and Rs 4, 14, 190 for models Lxi and Lxi (O), respectively. The Swift will now be compliant with — AIS-145 Safety Norms, for both petrol and diesel variants, along with another model being BS-VI compliant.
The company said that with the introduction of the new variants, it will lead to a price increase in all models of Swift. "Depending on features introduced across variants, the ex-showroom price in Delhi and NCR region shall vary from Rs 5, 14,000 to Rs. 8,89,000," the firm said in the exchange filing.
The 1.2 litre-version of WagonR, the firm said, will be BS-VI compliant and the prices will depend upon the features the car has to offer. The ex-showroom price in Delhi and NCR region will vary from Rs 5, 10,000 to Rs 5,91,000 and for the rest of the country from Rs 5, 15,000 to Rs 5,96,000, the firm said.
The firm also revised the prices of WagonR. The revised ex-showroom price for WagonR in Delhi and NCR region shall vary from Rs 4,34,000 to Rs 5,33,000 and for the rest of the country from Rs 4,39,000 to Rs 5,38,000.
Bharat stage or BS emission standards were set by the government in 2000 to monitor the output of air pollutants from motor vehicles. For BS-VI norms, the grade fuel is required to emit 10 ppm sulphur and is required to bring the particulate matter in diesel cars down by 80 percent.
The norms direct the firms to make sure the vehicles limit the release of air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, particulate matter and sulphur oxides from vehicles using internal combustion engines.
