Maruti's January sales slump seven percent

Maruti registered a 7.25 percent year-on-year (YoY) decline in January wholesales at 128,924 cars (January 2021: 139,002). The January sales, were however up 13 percent compared to previous month’s 113,851 units.

The company’s entry-level cars – the Alto and S-Presso – continued to be on the declining trend and registered a de-growth of 26 percent with sales touching 18,634 units (January 2021: 25,153).

The utility vehicle range comprising the Ertiga, Vitara Brezza, S-Cross, Gypsy and XL6 save blushes for the carmaker and recorded a YoY uptick of 11.45 percent to 26,624 units (January 2021: 23,887 units). Similarly, the Ciaz sedan clocked 1,666 units to register an uptick of 24 percent (January 2021: 1,347).
