Right in time for the festive season. Talk about timing!

If you’ve been looking out for a spacious family hatchback, we’re sure the Baleno has been on your radar. While the product itself leaves very little to whine about, the waiting periods have put a frown on one too many faces. We’ve seen waiting periods shoot up beyond a couple of months in a few areas, and that, to put it kindly, is a bit too much.

Our cries for more Balenos per month has been answered by Maruti Suzuki. The manufacturer claims that the production of the big hatchback has been bumped up by as much 34 per cent over the past eight months. They’re also quick to point out that there are over 4.5 lakh Balenos on the road today, which is appreciable considering it has been only 1,053 days since it debuted. We did the math. That’s roughly 427 units of the Baleno finding homes EVERY DAY!

Take a look at what Maruti Suzuki had to say about ramping up production:
