The Maruti Super Carry LCV (Light Commercial Vehicle) was launched in July 2016. This vehicle has sold 23,000 units since it's launch and Maruti has announced they will discontinue the diesel variant starting 1 April 2019.
According to MotorBeam, Maruti says it is not feasible to upgrade the current diesel engine to meet BS-VI emission norms. They have decided to stop production the Super Carry. The Diesel variant of the Super Carry retails at Rs 4.71 lakh, ex-showroom, India; and Maruti says that upgrading the diesle engine will increase costs and therefore increase the retail price. However, petrol and CNG variants will still be available.
The Maruti Super Carry LCV features a 793cc twin cylinder engine that produces 32bhp of power and 75Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The LCV has an ARAI certified mileage of 22.07 kilometers to a litre of diesel.
The vehicle is available in two colours — Superior White and Superior Silver. The Super Carry has a total payload capacity of 740 kilograms, and a loading bay that measures 3.25 square meters. The vehicle features MacPherson struts with coil springs in the front and leaf springs with a rigid axle at the rear.
The Maruti Super Carry LCA has a ground clearance of 17mm and features a wheelbase of 2110mm. It also features a light steering wheel, dual assist grip, multi-purpose storage spaces, a lockable glove box, and bottle holders. The vehicle does not feature any air conditioning. The vehicle features disc brake in the front and drum brakes at the rear, and a minimum turning radius of 4.3 meters.
Maruti entered the commercial vehicle segment with the launch of the Super Carry. They also set up dedicated dealerships across the country exclusively for the Super Carry.
Thoughts About Maruti Stopping Production Of The Diesel Variant Of The Super Carry
Various manufacturers have already stated that it makes no sense to upgrade their smaller diesel engines to comply with the BS-VI norms. They say it is not cost effective, and if they do, retail prices will increase. Maruti is making a move that makes sense, not just for the company but for customers too. There's no point paying an additional amount. This certainly applies to folk who buy a single commercial vehicle to ferry loads over shorter distances. The more the cost of a vehicle, the lesser income there is, at least till loans are cleared — that's 5 years at least.
