The entry-level Maruti hatchbacks have comparatively shorter waiting periods. The Alto has a waiting period of less than a week while the WagonR, S-Presso and Celerio have a waiting period of less than a month.
In a separate development, Maruti Suzuki has announced a hike in prices across its model range that will come into effect from January next year. The price hike comes as the company makes maximum effort to reduce cost and partially offset the increase, thus saying that it has become imperative to pass on some of the impact through a price increase.
Separately, the company confirmed that it will introduce its first flex-fuel vehicle for the compact segment by 2025. It is currently testing its flex-fuel engines with ethanol-blended petrol. It recently showcased its WagonR hatchback as a flex-fuel car in an exhibition organised by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM).
