Maruti Super Carry LCV is a much-delayed light commercial vehicle project. Country’s largest carmaker. Maruti Suzuki had decided to launch its ‘Super Carry’ LCV a few times back, but due to some reason it took more time to launch in India than it was expected. It was announced plans to enter the LCV in July 2013. Then it postponed the release for next 2 years. Then again they delayed. But finally, the public car is ready for the Indian market. The supercar has already started its innings in South Africa and Tanzania, the company also plans to export the Super Carry to the SAARC countries. Maruti’s Chairman R C Bhargava confirmed that load carrier will be here sooner than later.
This 1-tonne cargo with the capacity of 750 kg is powered by a developed 793cc 2-cylinder diesel mill, that can pump out 47bhp and 125Nm of peak torque, with an E08 diesel engine, which has been made for the Indian market only. Where on the contrary, the export version of ‘Super Carry’ is powered by the G12B four-cylinder petrol engine that can develop 72bhp at 6,000rpm and 101Nm of torque at 3,000rpm, mated to five-speed manual transmission. The cargo is enormous in size with 3,800mm in length and 1,560mm in width.
This is the first commercial vehicle of Maruti Suzuki that will go for a competition with Tata Ace and Piaggio Porter range in India; which is ruling the Indian market for quite some time.
