Over 400 Ertigas have been booked on its launch day in the state of Maharashtra.
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga has reported that its newest mini-MPV has garnered over 400 bookings on the first day of its launch in the state of Maharashtra. The new mini-MPV from Maruti Suzuki was introduced in the Indian market at a starting price of Rs 5.89 lakh on 12 April 2012.
"Even before the launch of the Ertiga here, we have had 400 bookings from Maharashtra." Mr S.N Burman, commercial business head for western region said.
"The Ertiga is a major step forward for Maruti. Many urban families are now looking for a vehicle that offers more space and flexibility than a sedan, without being bulky, bland and expensive like a utility vehicle. The Ertiga is designed for these customers," Maruti managing director and chief executive S Nakanishi said.
The company plans to launch the Eritga in other Southeast Asian markets too and has also reported that the first batch of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga will be shipped to Indonesia by the end of May 2012. The company has about 3 per cent market share in Indonesia and hopes to increase it in the future with the launch of Ertiga in Indonesia.
