One of India’s iconic brands, the Maruti 800, is all set to drive into the sunset as parent Maruti Suzuki said sales of this model would be discontinued from April 2010 across several cities in India. The company made this announcement while saying they had no plans to upgrade this model to Euro IV (Bharat Stage IV) emissions standards.
So, finally…………… After all the numerous test drives to evaluate the Hyundai i10 Kappa and the Hyundai i20, I’ve made my choice… and it’s the i10 Kappa with automatic transmission. There were quite a few options to choose from, even in terms of the colour and interiors.
When I saw the trim of the Sportz model, I instantly fell in love with it and knew I just had to have it. I was told this was available in only two body colours, Black and Red. No guessing which one I chose ! 🙂
Just days after Tata Motors began the booking process for the Tata Nano, the company has reaped a windfall of almost Rs.15 crore, purely by selling close to 500,000 application forms @ Rs.300 each. The sale of forms started on April 1, bookings began from April 9 and close on April 25. State Bank of India (SBI), which is offering loans at 10% now, has already sold over 100,000 forms.
All the booking applications will be subjected to a computerised random selection procedure. Within 60 days of the closure of bookings on April 25, Tata Motors will announce the allotment of 100,000 cars in the first phase of deliveries, scheduled to commence from July onwards.
