AGS fitted vehicles now account for 25 percent of the company’s sales of these two models. The company’s confidence in the technology is amplified by the fact that it provides a 10 year warranty for its AGS unit on the Celerio and the Alto K10. Faced with an initial crunch in supply of AMT units, the waiting period shot up for the Celerio and the company reacted by increasing production of AMT-fitted vehicles to 5,000 units a month.
