Country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki has achieved yet another feet by selling 50,000 units equipped with Auto Gear Shift technology. The winning comes in a relatively short period of time of less than 1.5 years when the company introduced the technology in its small car Celerio. Later, Maruti also introduced the same technology in Alto K10. The achievement is in resonance with the company’s target to sell 2 million cars by the end of 2020.
