Maruti has revealed photos and specification details of the Super Carry which will be launched in the South African Market in June this year. The Super Carry will be made in India and exported for consumption in South Africa.
Maruti Suzuki has unveiled some details about its new mini truck, the Super Carry. The Super Carry is all set to launch in the South African market in June 2016. The vehicles however, will be manufactured in India and then later shipped to South Africa for consumption. By launching the Super Carry, Maruti aims to attract small business owners and local entrepreneurs in South Africa.
The Super Carry gets a payload rating of 750 kgs, which is identical to its chief contender, the Tata Ace. The Super Carry is 3.8-metres long with a loading bay measuring 2.18 x 1.49 metres. Further, a ground clearance of 175 mm and a turning circle of 8.6-metres diameter will help it perform well in tight situations. Up front, it gets MacPherson Struts and coil springs, while the rear gets a rigid axle and leaf springs.
Under the hood, it houses a 1.2-litre GB14 four-cylinder petrol engine with multi-point fuel injection. It puts down 72 HP of power at 6000 RPM and 101 Nm of torque at 3000 RPM. The engine has been mated to a 5-Speed manual transmission sending power to the rear wheels. In South Africa, the Super Carry has been priced at 1,29,900 Rand, which is the equivalent of Rs. 5.58 lakhs/-.
The Super Carry is expected to be launched in India by the end of this year. However, the Indian spec version will most likely get the 800cc two-cylinder diesel engine used in the Maruti Celerio. It may also get a CNG/LPG kit option.
