Maruti Suzuki's Tour Range Hits 500,000 Sales Milestone
Maruti Suzuki, India's leading car manufacturer, on Monday announced the accomplishment of a significant milestone: the sale of 500,000 units within its Tour range of commercial vehicles. Built upon the same platform as its Arena series, these commercial vehicles serve a diverse clientele within the sector.
For those unfamiliar, the Tour H1 is constructed on the Alto K10 platform, while the Tour H3 utilizes the WagonR platform. Additionally, the Tour S, Tour M, and Tour V are based on the Dzire, Ertiga, and Eeco platforms, respectively.
The Tour range has proven its versatility across various applications in the commercial vehicle domain, catering to tour operators and app aggregators like Uber. One key factor driving their popularity is the availability of factory-fitted CNG kits, ensuring not only reduced operational costs but also enhanced safety compared to aftermarket retrofits.
Another notable feature is the accessibility of these vehicles through the Maruti Suzuki Smart Finance program. Designed specifically for aspiring taxi owners, this financing option offers low-interest rates, facilitating easy acquisition of Tour vehicles. This opens doors for individuals looking to enter the fleet management industry with ease.
Speaking on this occasion, Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Officer, Marketing and Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, “Our TOUR range has become a part of several entrepreneurial aspirations, acting as a trusted partner on their road to success. Maruti Suzuki understands the critical importance of minimizing downtime for businesses, and the TOUR Range has consistently delivered on this promise, ensuring uninterrupted operations for its users. These vehicles also come equipped with essential features to ensure compliance with Government regulations. The option of CNG powertrain significantly reduces running cost while also reducing carbon footprint.”
