The new Swift was launched by Maruti Suzuki today. The price of the new Swift would be between Rs. 4, 42,000 to Rs. 5,53,000 and Rs. 5,17,000 to Rs. 6,38,000 for petrol and diesel variants respectively. The company plans to sell the new Swift through 981 dealerships across the country.
The total money invested by Maruti’s suppliers and Maruti Suzuki themselves for the new Swift’s production is estimated to be more than Rs. 550 crores and is 95% localised. The entry of Maruti Swift was in 2005 into the Indian market. It sold over 6 lakh units in a time span of six years. No wonder, the current bookings have already shot up the 50,000 mark.
