Maruti Suzuki India (MSIL) on Thursday launched BS-VI compliant of its urban multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) Ertiga priced at Rs.7.55 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The BSVI next-gen Ertiga petrol comes nearly seven months before the implementation date of BSVI regulations.

“At Maruti Suzuki, we remain committed to sustainable mobility.

The BSVI petrol vehicles will have a substantial reduction in emissions thus contributing to a safer and cleaner environment," Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director, Marketing and Sales, MSIL, said.

Over 70,000 units of next-gen Ertiga are being sold since launch in November 2018. This is a 63 per cent growth compared to the same months in the previous year. With an average monthly sale of over 8,300 units, the Ertiga is India’s best-selling MPV.

The BSVI compliant petrol vehicles will lead to a substantial reduction of nearly 25 per cent in Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emissions.
