But in a market comprising of already established leaders in Tata Ace, Mahindra Maxximo and Ashok Leyland Dost, given the lack of experience on Maruti’s part, it may be some time before Super Carry may actually start selling a profitable number of units.

The diesel engine powering the Super Carry could find its way into the Eeco and Omni in the near future. The implementation of the diesel engine in the Eeco could improve its popularity among taxi owners, it is a popular vehicle in those cities where CNG is mandatory for commercial vehicles.
