A car spearheaded by current Chairman and CEO Osamu Suzuki, the model was designed for the Kei Class in Japan to provide motorists with low cost and enjoyable motoring, an ethos which has remained a core feature of the car

Maruti will defintely survive, there is no doubt about that, as they have a large market base and have also large dearlship/service network.

Nano will just create another market segment for itself. This segment could see some more competition as several other manufacturerers will launch products to compete with Nano.

In any case the roads are going to get very crowded...

thanks

Yeah as said by you guys already, Nano can't be a doom for Maruti. Maruti knows how to survive. Let the hype of Nano comes down and the Tata's trademark niggling problems will change the people's decision.

the original 800 was launched as the alto in 1979,followed by the current maruti 800 in 1983 also the current suzuki alto sells in many markets around the world and its a global vehicle which i dont think see's threat from nano since tata cant compete with suzuki globally!

Nano effect? Maruti 800, Omni get ready to retire

New

Delhi: Maruti 800 - the small car that revolutionised personal

transport in modern India - will take a bow starting next year and be

phased out by 2016, when the country is expected to embrace new

emission norms, Maruti Suzuki India said on Wednesday.

Along

with the M800, MSI will also be phasing out its second oldest model,

the utility van Omni. In the initial phase, the two models will be done

away with in 11 cities from next year, where the Bharat Stage-IV

emission norms (which is equivalent to Euro-IV norms) will become

applicable.

"Once Euro-IV emission norms is applied across the

country, which is likely to happen around 2015-16, then M800 and Omni

may not be a saleable product. We will have to eventually phase (them)

out then," MSI Chairman R C Bhargava told PTI.

The Death of a Legend is inevitable. Just as the Maruti 800 killed the Premier Padmini/Fiat1100' date=' The Nano will kill the Maruti 800. [/quote']

 

No tears. It could have happened much earlier.

 

If the market gossip is to be believed, the sponsered strike ensured death of very competent FIAT Uno and then the sponsered agitation tried its best to kill Nano.

Maruti intends to upgrade Alto's motor with the one from A-Star in the wake of coming emission norms. The 1L motor shall give it peppy performance & might fill the void of earlier 1L engine which was discontinued.
