According to the NDTV report, Maruti, India's largest car brand is said to be receiving 1,000 bookings per day for its recently launched Celerio. 

The Celerio was launched at the Auto Expo 2014 in Noida and is the first car in India to come with Automated Manual Transmission (AMT). It is offered in n six variants in the country - two with automatic transmission and four with manual transmission and it claims a fuel efficiency of 23.1 kilometers for both the versions.

With a wheelbase of 2425mm, Maruti Celerio measures 3600mm in length and 1600mm in width and packs a 998cc, 3-cylinder, K10B engine, which can churn out a power of 67 bhp at 6,000 rpm and a torque of 9.1 kgm at 3,500 rpm under the hood. The vehicle falls in the price range of ₹3.90 lakh to ₹4.59 lakh.

Considering the current pace of bookings, Maruti hopes to clock a good number of sales with the Celerio and to retain its market position in India.

"In our view, success of AMT could disrupt the market in favour of Maruti Suzuki. It also could give the company a head start of one-two years over other players," NDTV quoted Nomura analysts Kapil Singh and Nishit Jalan.
