The company is ramping up the number of facilities for the launch of new BS4 diesel variant.
Premier Automobiles has signed a contract with Fiat for the 1.3-litre diesel engine, which will soon power the compact SUV Rio. Premier now has both BS4 compliant petrol and diesel engines, allowing them to fully establish themselves in tier I cities. The company plans to quickly ramp up service facilities, so as to not lose customers due to sales and service issues.
Premier will set up 200 ‘Premier Authorised Service Stations’ (PASS) across the country by June to provide quality service and also build confidence in prospective customers. Rio is the only product in its segment, so with a reliable engine and assured service Premier can certainly expect better volumes.
Premier had unveiled the facelift version of Rio at the 2012 Auto Expo, which is rebadged version of Chinese SUV Zoyte Nomad. The Rio is currently offered with 1.5-litre Peugeot diesel (BS3) and 1.2-litre AVL petrol (BS4) engine and the facelift with 1.3-litre Multijet is expected by March end.
