Two pedalled Maruti Suzuki cars are rapidly gaining popularity in India.
Maruti Suzuki has crossed the mark of 3 lakh cumulative sales of its cars fitted with AMT gearbox, which the company likes to call Auto Gear Shift (AGS) in its own terms.
With the AGS becoming popular among the customers, Maruti Suzuki aims to achieve the feat of over 2 lakh sales in the current fiscal year. The contribution of cars with AGS variant to the company’s total sales has tripled since its introduction in 2014.
Commenting on the success of the AGS technology, R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director (Marketing and Sales), Maruti Suzuki said, “At Maruti Suzuki, we believe in providing our customers with the best of technology and convenience. The revolutionary Auto Gear Shift technology is one such innovation that offers comfort and ease of driving to the customers with no compromise on fuel efficiency. It has achieved wide acceptance among customers. Crossing 3 lakh retail sales mark within five years of its introduction is a reflection of the success and consent of the customers for the two-pedal technology. With enhanced awareness and deeper penetration, we aim to sell over 200,000 cars with AGS in 2018-19”.
At present, Maruti Suzuki offers AGS in seven models in its range, which include Alto K10, WagonR, Celerio, Swift, Ignis and Dzire. In May 2018, Vitara Brezza became the latest offering with AGS technology from Maruti Suzuki.
