- Maruti Suzuki has sold over 5 lakh units of its BS6-compliant vehicles.
- The Ciaz and Brezza are the only two models not among those mentioned.
- Only BS6-compliant vehicles can be registered from 1 April 2020 onwards.
Maruti Suzuki has sold more than 5 lakh units of BS6-compliant cars. The deadline for all manufacturers is March 31 of this year, after which only BS6-compliant vehicles can be registered.
The entire Maruti range of cars has contributed to this figure – except for the Ciaz, whose BS6 version was launched in the last week of January, and the Brezza, which has been available in diesel only, and whose BS6 version will launch in a few days. The entire Maruti Suzuki range has slowly but surely moved to petrol power because of the new emission norms.
The first BS6-ready models to launch were the Baleno and the Alto 800, which were launched in the month of April 2019. Soon, other models like the Swift and Ertiga were upgraded, while all the new models that were launched in 2019 like the new WagonR and XL6 models were launched with a BS6-compliant powertrain since day one.
Maruti Suzuki will most probably unveil the new Brezza BS6-compliant variant at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo, in a few days’ time.
