Maruti Suzuki to stop making BS-IV-compliant models by 2019-end

Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. plans to stop producing Bharat Stage-IV-compliant cars by the end of 2019, The Economic Times (India) reported Dec. 19, citing Maruti Suzuki Chairman R.C. Bhargava.

The move follows a Supreme Court order stating that there will no BS-IV vehicle sold in India from April 1, 2020 as the BS-VI emission standards would come into force, the report said.

"We may still give you some BS-IV vehicles after December 2019 if there is a customer demand for those vehicles ... and if we are sure that we can actually register the vehicle before March 31," Bhargava reportedly said at a media interaction.

Bhargava added that Maruti Suzuki's BS-VI-compliant diesel models would be priced "significantly higher" than the BS-VI-compliant petrol vehicles, according to the report.

Maruti Suzuki is a unit of Japanese automaker Suzuki Motor Corp.
