The country’s largest car maker, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI), today said it was developing a diesel engine for mid-size sedans.
“Currently, work is going on for developing a diesel engine for mid-sized sedans. Our engineers are developing it internally and we are hopeful of getting it ready by mid (of) next year,” MSI Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Shinzo Nakanishi told reporters here. The company was likely to utilise the new engine for launching a diesel version of its premium sedan SX4, he said.
MSI currently sources diesel engines from Fiat for its three models — Swift, DZiRE and Ritz.
Talking about the company’s upcoming second and third production units at its Manesar facility, Nakanishi said, “Opening of the second plant will be preponed by about six months to the end of 2011. We are also trying to advance operations at the third plant, which is scheduled to start in 2013.”
