New Delhi: Still recovering from the impact of workers' violence in July at the Manesar plant, Maruti Suzuki may soon roll out its Alto 800 model as per media reports.

Speculations are rife that Maruti may launch its new Alto 800 on Saturday.

Maruti, which has phased out its popular ‘people’s car’ Maruti 800 will positioned Alto 800 in the market to compete with Hyundai Eon and Tata Nano. As per reports the car will be priced below Rs 2 Lakh.

Maruti Suzuki India has started manufacturing the popular new compact sedan at the Gurgaon plant besides rolling it out from the troubled Manesar facility this week.

At present, the company has over 65,000 pending orders for the new Dzire and the waiting period is about 4-5 months.

The new Dzire is one of the best selling models of the company in the hatchback segment.
