maruti will stop making diesel cars From April 2020 | BS6 Upgrade impact | car quest
maruti Suzuki the biggest car makers,which accounts for one out of every two vehicle will have no diesel car for sale from April next year
At present, Maruti Suzuki has two diesel engine options in its range – the ubiquitous 1.3-litre, Fiat-sourced MultiJet engine, and its brand-new 1.5-litre, four-cylinder DDiS engine that debuted in the Ciaz. This announcement means that by April next year, there will be no diesel variant of any Maruti Suzuki model.
it is expected that the company will stop the production of diesel variant including the recently launched 1.5 ltr Diesel engine, around the end of this year itself considering that old stock will not be allowed for retail sale from April 2020 onwards due to the stricter BS6 emission norms
The company currently offers Diesel engine in 8 of its current models, with two of them Brezza and S-Cross only comes in diesel variants .all other options comes in both diesel and petrol variant
One of the Main reasons for maruti to stop the production of its Diesel engine is The cost of a BS6 diesel engine could raise the cost of the car by 17-20 percent. This cost if transferred to the customer will deter buyers from opting for diesel cars even if they are more fuel efficient. As a result of this, Maruti Suzuki may take a decision to stop offering diesel engines on all their cars.
