New Delhi: Automobile Maruti Suzuki India on Friday reported that it has sold over 2 lakh BS-VI compliant vehicles in six months.
The company had launched its BS-VI range with Alto 800 and Baleno in April 2019, a year before the government stipulated the timeline of April 2020.
At present, the complete range of Maruti Suzuki BS-VI compliant petrol models includes Alto 800, Baleno, WagonR (1.2 L), Swift, Dzire, Ertiga and the recently launched XL6 and S-Presso.
“The BS-VI compliant petrol vehicles will lead to a substantial reduction of nearly 25 percent in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions,” the company said in a statement, adding that the BS-VI compliant petrol vehicles can run on BS-IV petrol also.
“The BS-VI petrol cars from Maruti Suzuki have been extensively tested with BS-IV fuel and there is no operational concern,” it said.
