Maruti Suzuki registered 13,888 units in May 2020 with Ertiga topping the sales charts ahead of Dzire and Eeco
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) announced to have registered a total of 13,888 units in May 2020 following the resumption of production earlier in the month. It reported overall sales of 18,539 units and it includes 4,651 units for export markets and 23 units to OEMs. The automotive industry has come off the back of its worst crisis the previous month with zero sales.
With the festive season just a few months away, carmakers are planning to make steady progress as attractive financial schemes with easy buying options, online sales platforms and discounts are being offered across the board. Last month, Maruti Suzuki’s most sold model was the Ertiga MPV with 2,353 units as against 8,864 units during the same month one year ago.
While it is unfair to have a YoY comparison, our table shows the side-by-side data just for your reference. The Dzire took the second place with 2,215 units as the compact sedan received a facelift only a few weeks ago with mild cosmetic updates and new features. The Eeco finished in third position with 1,617 units as against 11,739 units in May 2019.
