Maruti Suzuki India sold 124,474 vehicles in the domestic market in May 2022 compared to 121,995 units in April 2022. When you compare it with pre-Covid levels, the auto bellwether is inching close to May 2019 sales level of 134,641 units.

The market leader posted total sales of 161,413 units in May 2022 including sales of 6,222 units to other OEM and its highest ever monthly exports of 27,191 units.

In a statement, the company said the shortage of electronic components had a minor impact on the production of vehicles, mainly domestic models. Maruti said it has taken all possible measures to minimise the impact. The sales figures of May 2022 are not comparable with that of May 2021 as the operations of the Company in May 2021 were significantly affected due to Covid-19 related disruptions.

Maruti recently launched the updated XL6 while the other products planned in the near future will include an updated Brezza in the entry level SUV space, followed by the five-door off-roader Jimny. Also in the works is a mid-size SUV to rival the Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta, which will have both the Toyota and Suzuki badges.
