For sure this news will leave most of the Maruti 800 fans and owners emotional. Yes, Maruti has decided to bring the curtains down on the production of Maruti 800. It is the second longest production, next only to Ambassador. It made its presence on the Indian roads way back in December, 1983. Since its launch 2,700,000 Maruti 800s have been rolled out till date. Because of technological improvements made to it since it's introduction, it was considered the most affordable, efficient and best in fuel consumption from the olden days. The first of it's kind was priced at Rs.48,000 and now it costs around 200,000.
  There were many inclusions to it after its arrival in to the customer market. The first one was the introduction of air conditioner and music system in the year 198, but the original 796 cubic centimeter capacity of the engine remained the same from its introduction.The latest of its kind in the market has the capability to switch from petrol to LPG engine technology according to the driver's needs. It was considered to be the most reliable and durable car but there are many good cars (including Maruti's own Alto) priced at the same range in the present market making its future questionable. So, its time to bid adieu to the legend.
