Sales of Auto Gear Shift technology vehicles cross 50,000 units: Maruti Suzuki

Sep 23, 2015

New Delhi: Reinforcing the success of Auto Gear Shift technology, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) today announced that sales of its vehicles equipped with AGS have crossed 50,000 units.

Auto Gear Shift technology was introduced in India through Maruti Suzuki Celerio, which was launched in February 2014. It was an instant success, offering the convenience of an automatic transmission with the fuel efficiency of a manual transmission. It is also attractively priced and easy to maintain compared to conventional automatic transmission.

AGS was subsequently introduced in Alto K10. Today vehicles equipped with AGS account for 25% of sales of Celerio and Alto K10 put together.

Celebrating the success of Auto Gear Shift technology, Mr. R S Kalsi, Executive Director, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki said, “Auto Gear Shift technology’s distinct attributes such as affordability, and convenience of driving in stop-go traffic conditions without any compromise on fuel efficiency have led to the popularity of this technology across India. It is another brilliant example of bringing right technology in the right offering at right price. Aligned with our goal of selling 2 million cars annually by 2020, we will focus on bringing these customer friendly technologies in the future.”

AGS vehicles are popular across the country particularly in markets like Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kochi.

Auto Gear Shift (AGS) Technology:
Auto Gear Shift or automated manual transmission (AMT) is equipped with the Intelligent Shift Control Actuator, an electric-hydraulic actuator that automatically performs clutch and shift operations.

Auto Gear Shift combines the actuator and controller and directly mounts them in the transmission in order to unify the working components

This permits synchronised control over the clutch, shifting, and engine for smoother gear changes. As well as bringing together the advantages of both manual and automatic transmissions, shifting time is shortened compared to conventional automatic transmissions.

Mated with the 1 litre K-next engine, the new generation transmission with optimized ECU calibration helps to boost the fuel efficiency.
