Maruti Suzuki Launches Petrol Vs Diesel Cost Calculator; Pushes For Petrol Cars
Maruti Suzuki recently has taken the credit of selling more than one lakh CNG cars. And now, there is news that the largest automobile manufacturer of India has launched a first of its kind petrol vs diesel car cost calculator.
As per reports, this car cost calculator by Maruti Suzuki has essentially pushed for the cars that are run by petrol as they seem to cost less. The car calculator goes to show that a huge number of years are taken to obtain the car cost benefits that come while using a diesel car.
We all know that a car run by diesel costs way more than what it costs if powered by petrol, thus increasing the cost of car ownership. But consumers generally buy the car powered by diesel with the belief that the costs of diesel will overcome the initial buying cost of the car. The calculator disproves this theory, showing how petrol cars have the upper hand.
The platform also shows that the maintenance cost of diesel cars is greater than those run on petrol variants, which reduces the benefit that is earned due to the low cost of the cars.
Diesel Cars Discontinued By Maruti Suzuki Post The Implementation Of BS VI Rules
As the BS VI has been implemented, Maruti Suzuki discontinued the sale and manufacture of diesel powered vehicles.
Using the car cost calculator platform, it seems as though Maruti Suzuki is justifying its decision of halting the sales of diesel powered vehicles. The company discontinued the manufacturing of diesel cars and is pushing people to buy petrol run cars only.
The sales of the company have been drastic – about 77.5% of petrol cars (11.5 lakh units) were sold by the company and diesel cars stood at a meager 22.5% (3.34 lakh)
