Gurgaon, April 14 (IANS) Maruti-Suzuki Tuesday opened its new engine manufacturing facility in Gurgaon, where it will produce energy efficient 1,197cc K12M petrol engines.

The K12M engine will be used in the car maker’s upcoming hatchback Ritz, a company statement said.
“The K12M engine is another example of Maruti Suzuki’s commitment to take engine technology in India to the next level. The K12M engine further strengthens Maruti Suzuki’s efforts for fuel efficient, green engine technology for Indian customers,” Shinzo Nakanishi, managing director and chief executive of Maruti Suzuki, said in the statement.
The new engine complies with the Bharat Stage-IV emission standards, which are set to be enforced in select cities by mid-2010, the company said.
