Finally, Maruti to launch Super Carry within this year – says R C Bhargava

Tata Ace and Mahindra Maxximo to get a new rival from Maruti in the form of Super Carry. Until now the segment is dominated by Tata, Mahindra and Ashok Leyland. Have to see how Maruti will fare in the commercial segment.

Maruti’s LCV Super Carry  is code named Y9T will be launched this year.

According to Economic Times, Maruti’s chairman R C Bhargava confirmed that the Super Carry will be launched in India within this year.

Super Carry was scheduled to be launched much earlier but was delayed due to re-engineering works.

According to the report, the delay was due to the wrong understanding of the load factor by Maruti. “We could not understand the load factor in the segment. Unlike a car, where you can seat four-to-five people with some luggage, an LCV gets abused in the Indian market. A one tonne truck often carries 1.5 tonne,” the executive said, citing the firm’s inexperience in the Indian LCV market and its inability to read attributes of the vehicle properly as the reasons for the delay.” said the company executive.

“First time in over 30 years of company’s history, a product is delayed,” said a top company executive directly involved with the matter, on condition of anonymity.

Interestingly India made Super Carry is on sale at Tanzania since June this year, where unlike in India the trucks are loaded as per their capacity rating. The export version is powered by 1.2 liter  72ps petrol  engine.

The Indian version Super Carry will come equipped with two engine options, 1200cc  petrol  engine and 800cc diesel in different tune from the export version. 800cc diesel is already on duty on Celerio.
