Maruti Suzuki India has decided to ramp up the production capacity of their new Celerio hatchback. The current production of the Maruti Celerio stands at 5,000 a month. The manufacturer hopes to double the production capacity to 10,000 per month. With the company discontinuing the production of Ritz and A-star, approximately 17,000 cars per month capacity, is available with the auto major to enhance the production of Celerio. According to reports Maruti has contacted its vendors asking them if they could match their supply with this kind of doubling capacity.

 

Maruti launched the Celerio at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, and went on to receive nearly 1,000 bookings per day. According to reports, out of the 20,000 plus bookings of the Celerio, more than 50 per cent are for the automatic variant. According to dealers the waiting period on the AMT Celerio is between four to six months while that for the manual is about one month. The automatic Celerio comes with a price tag of Rs 4.14 lakh, while the manual-geared version is priced Rs 3.76 lakh onwards. The Celerio AMT is offered in the base LXi and VXi variants. The success of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio AMT has led other manufacturers to follow suit. The Tata Zest compact sedan will be the first car from the Indian car manufacturer to sport an AMT transmission.
