INITIATIVES TAKEN BY MARUTI SUZUKI AGAINST CORONAVIRUS
India’s largest car manufacturing company has recently launched protective accessories against covid-19 pandemic. As, some plants resume their manufacturing units, showrooms are opening slowly and the delivery of cars has been started. So, Maruti Suzuki has listed a new category name- Health and Hygiene to strengthen the confidence of customers, on its official website. Under this category, the company is offering safety gear to prevent from coronavirus and the price range of these accessories is between Rs. 10 to Rs. 650.
The safety gear accessories include, face mask 3ply, disposable shoe cover, face visor, disposable eye gear, hand gloves and a car cabin protective partition. These protective gears meet all quality requirements. Most of these accessories are disposable, eco- friendly, durable, transparent and light weight. The car cabin partition will help in maintaining social distancing while travelling and will prevent the transfer of droplets while coughing, sneezing and talking. A clear sheet of virgin grade premium vinyl chloride material which covers the car surface from roof to top is inserted between the front and back seat to isolate the passengers. Cost of this partitioning equipment ranges from 549 to 649 depending on the car model. Price range of other accessories are, face visor for Rs 55, eye gear at Rs. 100, Gloves at Rs 20, Disposable shoe cover at Rs. 21, 3ply mask at Rs at 10 and mask at 149. These accessories won’t provide a cure to the virus and won’t stop it from spreading completely but surely will help to prevent as much as possible.
