Production and Delivery Data For The Maruti Suzuki Jimny
At Maruti’s Gurugram factory, the India-bound Jimny 5-door will be produced in large quantities for both local and foreign markets. Maruti Suzuki intends to make about a lakh units annually, of which about 7,000 units per month are anticipated to be sold on the local market and the remainder to foreign markets.
Deliveries of the Jimny are anticipated to start in India by the end of May, and according to our insiders, due to strong demand, the top-tier Jimny Alpha will be produced first.
On April 7, the Maruti Jimny customer display will conclude.
The Jimny, which debuted at Auto Expo 2023, will be available for purchase starting in May. According to an exhibition timetable we have in our possession, the SUV will be on display in nine Indian towns through April 7, 2023. The Maruti Suzuki Fronx compact SUV will then be introduced, which is anticipated to happen around the second week of April, according to our dealer sources.
In places like Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Mohali, Ludhiana, Raipur, Bhubneshwar, and Bengaluru, the Jimny dealer exhibition is presently taking place. The dealer showcase’s full timetable is provided below.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny’s Engine and Off-Road Technology
The Jimny’s tried-and-true 1.5-liter K15B petrol motor from Maruti Suzuki generates a maximum output of 134Nm and 105hp. You can choose between a 4-speed torque-converter automatic or a 5-speed manual transmission. With a manual transfer case, a low-range transmission, and “2WD-high,” “4WD-high,” and “4WD-low” settings, it comes with Suzuki’s AllGrip Pro 4WD system. Also supporting the Jimny is a sturdy ladder-frame structure.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny Characteristics and Variations
The Jimny is only offered in Zeta and Alpha model levels, with the latter receiving additional features like auto headlights, the SmartPlay Pro+ infotainment system, and an Arkamys sound system. However, Maruti Suzuki includes security features like hill-hold assistance and six airbags as normal equipment. A thorough feature summary is available here.
Estimated Cost and Release Schedule for the Maruti Suzuki Jimny
The Jimny is anticipated to cost around Rs 12 lakh from Maruti and is anticipated to go on sale in May 2023. Although it won’t have any direct competition when it goes on sale, Mahindra and Force are working on 5-door variants of the Thar and Gurkha, two SUVs that will appeal to the same market as the Jimny 5-door.
