Maruti Suzuki Converts 70 Per Cent of Petrol Car into BS-VI - TyreCafe

by Editor News

The first Maruti Suzuki BS-VI compliant model was Baleno premium hatchback, which was converted in April 2019.


Maruti Suzuki has converted 70 per cent of its petrol car portfolio to BS-VI emission compliance, claims the automaker in a regulatory filing.

Currently, the brand sells six BS-VI compliant models including Alto 800, WagonR (1.2L), Swift, Baleno, Dzire and Ertiga. The upcoming XL6 MPV that is scheduled to launch this month will also come with the BS-VI compliant powertrain.

As the automaker claims, it is the first OEM to bring BS-VI compliant vehicles in the mass-segment, well ahead of 1st April 2020 deadline.

The first Maruti Suzuki BS-VI compliant model was Baleno premium hatchback, which was converted in April 2019. This was followed by Alto 800, WagonR (1.2L), Swift, Dzire and Ertiga.

Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, commented on this by saying that Maruti is a responsible and environment-conscious brand and is aligned with Government of India’s plan to bring BS-VI compliant vehicles before April 2020. According to him seven of their best-selling cars have become BS-VI compliant before the allotted timeline.

He also said that the company is focusing to upgrade the entire range of its petrol cars to BS-VI technology before the timeline. The BS-VI cars use the brand’s technology that helps to substantially reduce the emissions, which in turn contributes to a cleaner and greener environment.

Ayukawa further added, "We extend our gratitude to our customers who are early adopters of environment-friendly BS-VI technology in our vehicles."

The petrol vehicles that are BS-VI compliant will lead to a reduction of nearly 25 per cent of Nitrogen Oxide emissions. These BS-VI compliant petrol vehicles can run on BS-IV petrol as well. Maruti Suzuki claims its BS-VI petrol cars have been extensively tested with BS-IV fuel and there is no operational concern.
