India’s leading carmaker Maruti Suzuki is breathing a sigh of relief following its highest ever monthly sales in July. The brand’s domestic sales included 125,778 units compared to 110,405 units sold during the same period last year.
This marks a healthy 14 per cent rise in year-on-year sales. Maruti had to cut down its production due to fire breakout at its air conditioning component facility. The fire ultimately led to a maintenance shutdown for nearly a week.
In all, Maruti sold 137,116 units in July 2016 including exports. With the oncoming festive season and a couple of major launches (Read: Ignis, Baleno RS) in the pipeline, Maruti is looking forward to a busy second half of 2016.
