Several models from Maruti Suzuki already command a long waiting period. Now, it is likely to increase since the company as temporarily shut down three of its facility for routine maintenance.
The carmaker has stopped production of all its models, including the Swift, Dzire, Baleno, Alto and the Vitara Brezza. So if you have already placed a booking for one of these models, expect to wait a bit longer before you can get your hands behind the wheel.
Maruti Suzuki shuts down its production facilities twice a year to conduct routine maintenance checks. Its plants in Gurugram and Manesar have a yearly cumulative vehicle production capacity of 15 lakh cars, while the one in Hansalpur, Gujarat is fairly new and can produce a total of 2.5 lakh units. That gives Maruti Suzuki a combined daily production capacity of nearly 4794 cars on an average.
