New Delhi: Many models will be launched on the market in the near future in the SUV segment. Mobile car companies have begun to capitalize on the demand for SUVs. In such a situation, the country’s largest auto company, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI), is preparing to strengthen its position in the fast-growing SUV category in the country. A senior company official gave this information on Wednesday. The company has also started work on new models to expand its existing range in this episode. Maruti Suzuki currently has a 66 percent share in the hatchback segment and around 50 percent in the total domestic passenger vehicle segment.
The company currently has Vitara Brezza and S-Cross models in the SUV segment. Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Maruti Suzuki India, admitted that the introduction of new vehicles is taking time due to Kovid-19, but the company is now in the process of introducing new models. “We already have vehicles like Vitara Brezza and S-Presso in the compact segment. Our vehicle portfolio certainly lags behind many other original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). ”
The CEO of the company said: “We are planning and have already started to develop some new models to introduce to the market. Our time has been affected by the pandemic but now we are in the process of launching new products (SUVs) to the market, offering compatible gasoline and CNG vehicles. The company is not really “concerned about diesel vehicles” at this time.
