The Super Carry is retailed via exclusive Maruti dealerships for commercial vehicles only.
The diesel variant of the Maruti Super Carry LCV will be discontinued from April 1, 2020. The Super Carry was launched in July 2016 with its prices starting from Rs. 4.03 lakhs (ex-showroom). Not only this, with the introduction of the Super Carry, the Indian car manufacturer entered into the commercial vehicle segment. New dealerships were set up across the country which dedicatedly retailed the LCV.
Speaking of the diesel engine, the company says that it is not very cost effective to upgrade this diesel engine to meet BS6 norms, and hence the company is discontinuing the diesel variant of the LCV. Putting an upgraded diesel engine on the Super Carry will make it more expensive says the carmaker. However, Maruti will sell petrol and CNG powered variants of the Super Carry.
The 793cc twin-cylinder engine was first launched with the Celerio last year. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. On the Super Carry, the engine is detuned and it makes 32 BHP of power at 3500 RPM and 75 Nm of torque at 2000 RPM. The LCV has an ARAI certified mileage of 22.07 km/l.
The Super Carry has about 12 percent market share in India and has sold 23,000 units since its launch. It comes in two colours, Superior White and Superior Silver. The LCV comes with a loading bay of 3.25 square metres and has a total payload capacity of 740 kg. The front of the vehicle gets MacPherson struts and a rigid axle and leaf springs at the rear. The Super Carry has a ground clearance of 175 mm and a wheelbase of 2110 mm and a turning radius of 4.3 metres. Features include a light steering wheel, dual assist grip, multi-purpose storage spaces, lockable glove box and bottle holders. There is no air-conditioning available on the Super Carry.
