Meanwhile, the rush for diesel cars continues. Mahindraís Quanto compact SUV has crossed 6,200 bookings since launch on September 21, while itís Ssangyong Rexton premium SUV has seen bookings in a few hundreds after being unveiled just two days back. Renaultís Duster has already crossed the 20,000-unit booking number in the two and a half months since it hit the roads.
Mayank Pareek, Marutiís COO for marketing & sales, said that over October last year, showroom enquiries for the Alto are already up 32%. This takes the car market leaderís overall demand for its range up by 15% in the same period.
ď Around 200 Altos are being delivered today in one go by our dealer at Malappuram, Kerala, in a major event. Though itís still early into the festival season, response in the first four days have been very good,Ē he said.
