Maruti Suzuki Wagon R posted 22,836 units in the month of July 2021 to finish on top of the sales charts ahead of Swift, Baleno and Ertiga
The Indian automotive industry did endure a healthy growth in the month of July 2021 backed up by solid sales numbers from the top three manufacturers. Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) certainly proved its dominance once again by having eight of its cars in the top ten while Hyundai and Tata had one apiece – unsurprisingly both were SUVs.
The Maruti Suzuki Wagon R led the way ahead of three other cars from MSIL as it posted a cumulative domestic tally of 22,836 units against 13,515 units during the same period last year with a YoY volume increase of 69 per cent. The Swift finished in the second position with 18,434 units last month against 10,173 units in July 2020.
This led to a massive YoY surge of 81.2 per cent. The Baleno premium hatchback came in at third with 14,729 units against 11,575 units during the corresponding month in 2020 with YoY volume growth of 27.2 per cent. All the models in the top ten sales charts barring Alto endured a healthy YoY positive surge as the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga grabbed fourth.
