Today, Maruti Suzuki provides AMT in five of its cars, two of which even have it with a diesel powertrain. Producers like Tata, Mahindra, Renault, and Nissan additionally provide AMT in a few of their vehicles while Hyundai is also working on its own version of AMT to an all-new hatchback set to go on sale in 2018.
