Maruti Suzuki has announced that its compact hatchback, the Celerio has clocked over 1 lakh units since its launch in 2014 Auto Expo.
The Celerio is the first mass market hatchback to get an automated manual transmission (AMT). While the petrol and the CNG variants were in good demand, the company recently launched the diesel Celerio to cater to a wider audience base.
“We thank customers for their support to brand Celerio. Celerio is the first car in India to introduce the acclaimed Auto Gear Shift technology and almost one third of the sales are of the Auto Gear Shift variants. Customers appreciated the convenience of automatic gear shifting with no loss in fuel efficiency on Celerio and within a year of its launch Maruti Suzuki’s share in the lower hatchback has shot up to 71% from 61%," said RS Kalsi, executive director, marketing and sales, Maruti Suzuki.
