The company says that this initiative will be expanded to 500 cities by the end of 2020. Under the Quick Response Team initiative, each QRT biker is equipped with all the essential tools and critical spares that are needed to restore the vehicle in distress.

Maruti Suzuki says that based on its comprehensive training, the QRT technicians are able to handle close to 90 per cent problems that are typically faced by customers in case of a vehicle break down. As soon as a Maruti Suzuki customer reports a vehicle breakdown, a web-based system identifies the GPS location of the nearby technician and automatically assigns him for the complaint.
