Maruti Alto 800 Crosses 6,000 Pre-Launch bookings, expected to reach 10,000 before launch

Hardly surprising now is it? The Alto 800 is currently on the lips of nearly everyone and a lot want to know the price, how it looks, drives but apparently that has not stopped anyone to book it. The Alto 800 launching on the 16th of this month has notched up more than 6000 bookings already and within a few days, nearing its launch, Maruti is confident that the 10,000 mark will be reached.

 Bookings for the small car have opened on October 1 after Maruti launched a dedicated web page Link - On the site, those interested can complete all the details and pre-book the car, with deliveries expected to start during the Diwali holidays. The price is not announced yet and many have not yet seen it or driven it. Though thanks to our constant blogs regarding this new small car you do know by now, how it looks, how many bhp it has, interior details etc. The stats require repetition, which are a 796 cc/ 47 bhp/ 69 Nm of torque and efficiency of 22.74 kmpl

This is a very important car and it will give tough competition to the likes of the Hyundai Eon, Tata Nano and the Chevrolet Spark which is also getting a face-lift soon. The prices are not yet revealed officially but we know it will be priced from Rs 2.5 lakh for base model to 3.4 lakhs for the top of the line petrol. The CNG version which will do 30.46 km/kg will be Rs 50,000 more expensive. Looking at the response, the company believes that 10,000 bookings before the car’s official launch is very much possible. 

About the prices, there is still speculation and Maruti are masters of surprising everyone with mouth watering price-tag’s, remember the Ertiga? so expect something competitive and also indeed shocking!
