Maruti Suzuki has regained its position as the biggest UV manufacturer in India in the month of August 2020, with over 30,000 units sold
Maruti Suzuki has continued to be the best-selling car manufacturer in the Indian market for years now, and the continual introduction of new offerings from time to time means that there’s no stopping the Indo-Japanese manufacturer. Apart from being the top-selling manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki also finished on top of the UV sales charts in August 2020, beating other leading UV makers like Hyundai and Mahindra.
In total, Maruti Suzuki managed to sell 20,578 Utility Vehicles last month, with the Ertiga being the best-selling offering in this specific list. Maruti Suzuki managed to sell 9,302 units of the MPV.
In the same month, 6,903 Vitara Brezzas, were shipped to Indian buyers, and while demand for the sub-4m SUV has taken a hit since Maruti Suzuki parted ways with diesel powertrains, the Vitara Brezza still manages to outperform almost all other cars in the segment.
