    Maruti Suzuki registers domestic sales of 51,274 units in June 2020

    Maruti Suzuki India has reported domestic sales of 51,274 units in June 2020. The figure marks a 54 percent drop in sales volume compared to June 2019, a month in which the Maruti Suzuki sold 1,11,014 units.

    However, given the impact of the coronavirus on the auto business, a comparison with the carmaker’s performance in May 2020 reveals a more representative image. Sales are up 270 percent from the 13,865 units Maruti Suzuki dispatched for the domestic market last month. In April, the carmaker recorded zero sales.

    For the month of June, Maruti Suzuki also reported sales of 839 units to another OEM (Toyota Kirloskar Motor) and exports of 4,289 units.

    Maruti closed the first quarter of FY2021 with total sales of 76,599 units - 66,165 units domestic, 862 units to other OEM and 9,572 units exported. The COVID-19 pandemic, the lockdown to contain it and the restrictions required for safety impacted sales in this quarter. Q1 sales are down 81 percent year-on-year; Q1 FY2020 sales were 4,02,594 units.

    Maruti Suzuki India resumed its manufacturing operations from May 12 at its Manesar plant and from May 18 at the Gurgaon plant, in accordance with the government regulations and guidelines. Production also resumed at Suzuki Motor Gujarat (SMG) from May 25. SMG manufactures cars (like the Toyota Glanza and Maruti’s Baleno and Swift) on a contract basis for Maruti Suzuki.

    The carmaker is currently gearing up to reintroduce the S-cross in a BS6-compliant, petrol-only avatar. The carmaker also recently announced that it was to start supplying the Vitara Brezza to Toyota under the Toyota-Suzuki alliance. The Toyota-badged model is expected to be launched in August this year with Urban Cruiser nameplate.
