Answer by Shreya 05 May 2009

Maruti 800 was priced at 83,000 when it was first launched in 1983. We bought a car in 1987 for 87000. It was defenitely less than a lakh - 26 years ago

Answer by Srinivas 05 May 2009

Hey buddy, get ready to shell out the bet money and pay it to your friend. M800 has never been priced at 1 lac in the last 20 years

Answer by Apurv 05 May 2009

when the material,labour cost & Taxes were less during the Maruti-800 was Launched in india, intial cost was less than one lakh in1983, but you can't compare the cost with Nano,
nano is cheaper than maruti, why because today the cost of material,labour & taxes are 4 times more,Hence nano is cheapest car in India.

Answer by Namassivaya 05 May 2009

Mr. Kiran you won the bet . There is no need to compare the price of raw materials then and now since the bet was regarding the cost price immaterial of the other factors.

Unfortunately you Loose the Bet!

Maruti was aimed at Rs. 50.000/= during planning stages, but when it rolled out it was costing Rs. 80000 plus. Although it is acceptable that for todays rates, still Nano is cheaper, still as a bet, you will stand to loose with your Friend.

Answer by Prasad 05 May 2009

No not atall. Maruti 800 and Maruti Van both were less than one lac only in 1985, 1986 and 1987.
