The company, along with its suppliers, has invested over Rs.950 crore towards development of Ignis, which comes with 98.5 per cent localisation.

Ignis comes with dual airbags, seatbelts with pre-tensioner force limiter (PTFL) and ABS with EBD as standard fitments. It is reported as compliant for pedestrian safety, side-impact and offset crash regulations ahead of regulation timeline.

Positioned in the category of vehicles such as KUV100 (which sells about 2000 units a month) and GRAND i10 (sells about 12,000 units a month), Ignis comes with a mileage promise of about 21 km/litre.

Analysts expect the Ignis to clock 6000-8000 units per month initially.
