New Delhi/IBNS: In a first, Automobile major Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has clocked cumulative sales of 500,000 BS6 compliant vehicles in mass cars ahead of the mandated timeline.

With a philosophy to offer new technology to customers, MSIL is now offering 10 models with BS6 compliant petrol engines.

Thanking customers for their overwhelming support to BS6 vehicles, Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, MSIL said, “We thank our customers for being early adopters of BS6 technology in our mass offerings. This achievement reaffirms the growth potential of new engines and technologies in India. Early introduction of the BS6 compliant engine in our popular models represents our commitment to Government’s vision for clean and green environment.”

Maruti Suzuki introduced its first BS6 compliant petrol car in April 2019, a full year in-advance from the mandatory deadline. The complete range of Maruti Suzuki BS6 compliant petrol models now includes industry best sellers: Alto, Eeco, S-PRESSO, Celerio, WagonR, Swift, Baleno, Dzire, Ertiga and XL6. These contribute nearly 75 % of the Company’s petrol volumes.

Effective April 2020, when the mandatory emission norms get implemented, Indian automakers will only be able to sell BS6 complaint vehicles.
