Maruti Suzuki Wagon R has touched the magical milestone of selling 15 lakh units in the country. The company sold around 156,300 units of Wagon R in 2013-14. In the current year, Wagon R sales have already exceeded 93,000 units. Maruti Wagon R was launched in India around 15 years back in 2000 and within just three years of its launch, it has crossed the coveted sales milestone of 1 Lakh units.
On the achievement of this milestone, Mr Manohar Bhat, Vice President (Marketing) said, “Launched in 2000, Wagon R has been amongst India’s top 5 best-selling brands. With its space, features and comfort, Wagon R has been the choice of the “Smart customer” and consistently remained among India’s most loved car brands." Strengthened by regular up-gradations to meet customer expectations and successful marketing initiatives focusing on the core proposition of ‘Smart’ while staying true to its leadership stance, Wagon R continues to win the hearts of Indian car buyers.
Adding to its popularity, Maruti Suzuki expanded the Wagon R family by bringing the CNG trim in 2010-11. In cities like Delhi and Mumbai, where CNG is available, Wagon R CNG accounts for over 50% of sales. To keep excitement going, in 2013-14 Maruti Suzuki introduced Wagon R Stingray to the Wagon R portfolio. Powered by the 998cc K-series engine, Wagon R offers maximum power of 68 PS at 6200rpm and top torque of 90Nm at 3500rpm with a mileage of 20.5 kmpl and 26.6km/kg in petrol and CNG trims, respectively.
