Maserati fans can rejoice; the Italian brand plans to follow Ferrari`s footsteps and re-enter the Indian market
Recently Ferrari appointed new dealerships in Mumbai as well as Delhi, to provide sales and service for its customers in the country. The previous dealers spoilt the reputation of the brand in the country by providing shoddy service to the existing customers and many well-known people (Mr. Gautam Singhania himself) had voiced their concerns.
Now following suit, Maserati plans to re-enter the lucrative supercar market in the country. It parted ways with Shreyans automobile, after receiving negative feedback from its customers. Reports suggest the Italian carmaker Maserati could get their beautiful range of vehicles to the country as soon as mid-2015. The Indian supercar market is on a rise, and it only makes sense for companies to have their official sales and service centers over here. All the existing owners of these Italian supercars can heave a sigh of relief, as now they’d have trusted service center and wouldn’t have to depend on unauthorized dealers.
Maserati has a big fan following in the country, and it would be nice for them to show they appreciate our sentiment. The company, which is part of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles group, will set up their dealerships and make an announcement shortly. The cars would be sold as CBU’s and you could expect the cheapest ones to cost nothing less than 3 crore INR (ex-showroom).
Wouldn’t it be nice to see more Quattro Porte’s, GranTourismo’s and maybe even Ghibli’s revving on our streets?
