Sales in the UV segment dropped by a massive 11.2 per cent

Maruti Suzuki India Limited sold a total of 146,766 units in October 2018. This includes 138,100 units in domestic market and 8,666 units of exports. Sales of the company stayed flat and saw a marginal growth of 0.2 per cent compared to the same period last year. The company last year had shown a 9.3 per cent growth during the month of Dussehra;  however, it could not replicate that growth this time around. Maruti Suzuki’s sales have been growing marginally and it looks like the beginning of the festive season has not brought in the  numbers for the company.

Another segment which saw a massive decline was the Utility vehicles segment. The Vitara Brezza has championed this segment for the company for a long time now and it has even helped the company become one of the leading UV manufacturing in the country. Sales in the UV segment dropped by a massive 11.2 per cent and it is the biggest drop seen in the recent past.
