On 14 February, Maruti Suzuki India, a Suzuki subsidiary in India, announced that it achieved one million total accumulated production volume of the Alto.
The Alto has reached the million units mark in just seven years and five months since its launch on September 2000. The last half of the million has come in a record 25 months.
The Alto has been India's largest volume-selling car, every month, for the past 37 consecutive months.
Its popularity has continued to grow since its launch, with customers attracted to its unmatched combination of fuel efficiency, contemporary design and looks and features including Electronic Power Steering and air-conditioning.
With this Alto becomes the third car in Maruti Suzuki stable to cross the million units mark. Previously, the Maruti 800 and the Omni have exceeded the million units mark.
Besides its success in India, over 152,000 Altos made at Maruti Suzuki were delivered internationally, enjoying good outcomes in Algeria and Chile.
