Maruti Suzuki launched a brand new model in the country after close to two years. The company had launched the S-Presso in September 2019 and since then we saw a whole bunch of facelifts and updates to the model range. Clearly, the times were hard and the company had a clear agenda in mind about new launches. Today, finally, the company launched the all-new generation of the Celerio and in a way, this marks the beginning of a slew of launches from the company. Speaking during the launch proceedings of the all new Celerio, Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director, and CEO, Maruti Suzuki outlined the troubled phase that the industry was undergoing.

However, with learnings from the first wave the ramp up in production was considerably faster.
