“Tarakki Ki Dumdaar Kahaaniya” by Maruti Suzuki Commercial
The Super Carry – Maruti Suzuki Commercial’s first mini truck in India – has been a tremendous hit right from launch. The Super Carry operates in the hugely competitive commercial vehicle segment, and has found happy buyers across the length and breadth of India. Here is one such happy owner – Jaspreet Singh Anand, also known as Sunny, from Bhatinda,Punjab.
Mr. Singh, a transporter in the city of Bhatinda for the past 15 years, explains how the Maruti Suzuki Super Carry helped transform not just his business but also his lifestyle. Mr. Singh is particularly impressed with the spacious loading bay of the Super Carry, which accommodates a wide variety of goods – ranging from household essentials to consumer durables such as fridges and televisions.
The high payload of 740 kilograms, excellent fuel efficiency and good pick up allows the Super Carry to effortlessly transport more goods, translating into higher profits per trip. In fact. Mr Singh, who had one Maruti Suzuki Super Carry, now has four Super Carry mini trucks. He says that this fleet expansion has dramatically improved his business, and lifestyle. Mr. Singh, who used to live in a rented accommodation, has now bought a house of his own, and credits the Super Carry for the improvement in his lifestyle.
