New Delhi, Nov 1:
India’s passenger car market leader Maruti Suzuki India Ltd Saturday said it sold 103,973 units last month down from 105,087 units sold in Oct 2013.
In a statement issued here Maruti Suzuki said the company sold 97,069 units in the domestic market last month up from 96,062 units sold in Oct 2013.
The company’s total sales was pulled down due to lower exports last month. It shipped out 6,904 units last month as against 9,025 units exported during the comparable period last year.
Maruti Suzuki’s sales dipped in the volume segments (Alto, WagonR, Ritz, Celerio, Swift, Dzire).
However, the company’s sales of mid-sized car Ciaz zoomed to 6,345 units last month up from 262 units sold in Oct 2013.
According to Maruti Suzuki, owing to limited working days last month the availability of vehicles was hampered.
In exports, shipment of around 1,000 units to Algeria and Egypt was rescheduled to November 2014 due to cyclonic conditions in Gujarat area, the company said.
