Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) on Monday said it has delivered over 5,000 cars in the past few days with over 1,350 showrooms operational across the country at present.

The company has put in place comprehensive standard operating procedures (SOPs) for all its dealerships, MSI said in a statement.

With the SOPs in place, over 1,350 Maruti Suzuki showrooms and over 300 True Value outlets are operational now, it added.

"The company has put in place comprehensive norms to ensure that their car buying experience is completely safe. These norms are based on guidelines from the central and state governments," MSI Managing Director and CEO Kenichi Ayukawa said.

He further said,"We would like to encourage our customers to digitally choose and book their car and take advantage of the convenience of home delivery of their new vehicles."

MSI has a network of 3,086 showrooms across 1,964 towns and cities.

"All of them will abide by the new safety protocols. The remaining showrooms would open in due course if they are not in containment zones or if not specifically restricted by any local guidelines," the company said.

On Sunday, the company said its Gurugram plant would resume production from Monday, after 57 days of closure due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown.

The auto major has resumed operations at its Manesar-based plant earlier this month after around 50 days of closure.
