Maruti Suzuki India Limited — India's leading car making and OEM company — announced today that it has received an enthusiastic response, from its customers, for the BS6 range of vehicles. Company's BS6 models currently constitute around 70 per cent of the total petrol vehicles sold. Continuing with its commitment to launching environment-friendly vehicles, Maruti Suzuki introduced its first BS6 compliant petrol car, a Baleno in April 2019. This was followed by the launch of BS6 compliant petrol variants of Alto 800, WagonR (1.2 L), Swift, Dzire and Ertiga much before the government stipulated date of implementation of the regulations. The forthcoming XL6 Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) will also be BS6 compliant. All these vehicles are amongst the top-selling models in the industry.
Speaking on the announcement Kenichi Ayukawa, MD & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “As a responsible and environmentally conscious brand, Maruti Suzuki is aligned with Government of India’s vision to introduce BS6 compliant vehicles before April 2020. Seven of our top-selling models are BS6 compliant much before the deadline. We are committed to progressively upgrade our entire range of petrol cars to BS6 technology before stipulated timelines. The BS6 vehicles use Suzuki’s proven technology that helps to substantially reduce the emissions thus contributing to a cleaner and greener environment.” He extended his gratitude to our customers who are early adopters of environment-friendly BS6 technology in our vehicles.”

The BS6 compliant petrol vehicles will lead to a substantial reduction of nearly 25% in Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions. The BS6 compliant petrol vehicles can run on BS4 petrol also. The BS6 petrol cars from Maruti Suzuki have been extensively tested with BS4 fuel and there is no operational concern.
