Maruti Suzuki plans to close diesel engine assembly plant in Gurugram, says report
Top car maker Maruti Suzuki India Ltd is planning to either convert the diesel engine line in Gurugram to produce petrol engines or add an assembly line for petrol engines at its plant in Manesar, Mint reported citing three people directly aware of the development.
Both the factory units are situated in Haryana.
As per the report, the development comes following the dry demand for diesel vehicles in India and the company's plans to aggressively tap the market for petrol, CNG, eco-friendly hybrid and electric vehicles.
Sources told the paper that Maruti is also planning to stop using the 1.3-litre diesel engine for its cars, replacing it with a 1.5-litre diesel engine developed in-house by Suzuki.
Maruti didn’t respond to an email sent by Mint on Wednesday.
