Auto industry to launch six new models for festive buys

The beleaguered auto industry is pinning hopes on the festive season sales to bring the much- needed cheer and have lined up a series of new launches to woo customers in the coming days.

Within this week, the domestic automobile market will see as many as six new vehicles that include Maruti's new Alto, Tata Motors' Indigo Manza Club Class and Safari storme, Rexton from the stable of Mahindra & Mahindra's Korean arm Ssangyong and the new Ford Figo. Honda Cars India will also be introducing the automatic transmission version of its compact car Brio on October 18.

This will be followed by the CNG version of the company's mid-sized sedan City later in the month.

General Motors India will launch the refreshed version of its small car Spark later this month, while its brand new hatchback Sail U-VA will debut in November.

‘Usually sales go up during the festive season and we do hope this year also it will not be different and the new model launches will help,’ Maruti Suzuki India [MSI] Chief Operating Officer [Marketing and Sales] Mayank Pareek said.
