Maruti Suzuki's Sales Bounce Back, Rise 27% In January

01 February, 2017, 11:52 | Author: Alicia Barber
  • Sales of utility vehicles doubled to 16,313 units as compared to 8,114 units last year on the back of the compact SUV Brezza

The initial capacity is set at 2,50,000 units which will be supplied to Maruti Suzuki India as well as exported.

In terms of exports, the company saw a 44.8% growth in sales during January 2016.

Automobile major Maruti Suzuki India on Wednesday reported a surge of 27.10 per cent in its monthly sales for last month.

In the domestic market, Maruti Suzuki India sold a total of 133,934 cars in Jan 2017, as against 106,383 cars sold in Jan 2016, marking a growth of 25.9%. Last month Maruti Suzuki sold a total of 133934 vehicles in the domestic market registering 25 per cent increase in sales compared to the 106383 vehicles sold in January 2016.

That included housing affordability, access to healthcare and quality education, safer communities and a stronger economy. New Zealand votes for its Parliament every three years unless early elections are called.

MSI said sales of its compact sedan Dzire Tour, however, declined by 15.3 per cent during the month under review at 3,001 units. The Mini Segment which includes Alto and WagonR range, posted 10.9% growth and sales of 37,928 units. That said the point to be noted here is that the Vitara Brezza was only launched in March 2016, so it's understandable why Maruti's sales in utility vehicle space grew over two folds this year.

Domestic sales for the month jumped 25.9 percent to 1,33,934 vehicles. Vans Segment include Eeco and Omni, which registered growth of 34%.

Maruti Suzuki's passenger auto growth however posted a double digit 17.7% growth in sales in January. The share price touched high of 5,999.90 today.
