In May 2023, Maruti Suzuki Ertiga finished on top of the seven-seater sales charts with 10,528 units against 12,226 units enduring a YoY de-growth of 14 per cent

In the month of May 2023, Maruti Suzuki’s Ertiga regained the top spot in the seven-seater sales charts as 10,528 units were sold against 12,226 units in May 2022 with a YoY negative sales growth of 14 per cent. The Mahindra Scorpio finished in the second position with a total of 9,318 units as against 4,348 units during the same period last year.

This led to a massive YoY sales surge of 114 per cent but it was not good enough to beat Maruti Suzuki Ertiga for the topmost position. The Mahindra Bolero has been a consistent seller for the homegrown manufacturer for several years ago. The MPV’s affordability and reliability are some of the key attributes for its high success rate.

Last month, the Mahindra Bolero registered a domestic total of 8,170 units as against 8,767 units during the corresponding period last year with a YoY negative sales growth of 7 per cent. The combined sales of Toyota Innova Hycross and Innova Crysta stood at 7,776 units last month as against 2,737 units in May 2022 with a YoY surge of 184 per cent.
