    Maruti Suzuki Swift crosses 25 lakh sales milestone in India

    Maruti Suzuki Swift has crossed the 25-lakh sales milestone in India shortly after Maruti Suzuki announced the Ciaz crossing 3 lakh sales milestone. The Swift has driven past this milestone in 16 years. It achieved the 2.2 million mark in June 2020.

    • Swift was first showcased as ‘Concept S’ at 2004 Auto Expo
    • Currently in its third-generation in India

    Maruti Suzuki Swift: 2.5 million cars sold in India

    The Swift, which was first showcased in its concept form as the ‘Concept S’ at the Auto Expo 2004, was a breakthrough model for the Indian carmaker, marking its foray into the B+ hatchback segment which, at the time, had only the Hyundai Getz.

    This sales milestone also means that the Swift has more or less maintained its sales growth trajectory despite the pandemic and despite Maruti moving out of the diesel car market in April 2020. In fact, the Swift was the most sold car in India in 2020.

    The Swift has seen three generational changes and has consistently been one of the top-selling passenger vehicles in India. It found 1,72,671 buyers in FY2021, 1,87,916 in FY2020, 2,23,924 in FY2019 and 1,75,928 units in FY2018. And in the first four months of FY2022, it has clocked sales of 61,482 units.
