The second wave of the Corona epidemic has badly affected the country’s business, leaving no sector exempt from the effects of the epidemic. The country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki has presented its sales report for the last one month. Of which, the company’s sales have declined by 71 percent.
In May, Maruti Suzuki sold only 46,555 units, according to a report released by the company. Which was 1,59,691 units last April. In fact, the main reason behind the company’s sales being affected was the second wave of the corona epidemic, the rapid increase in the number of infected across the country in April, followed by the lockout in different parts of the country.
In addition, Maruti Suzuki stopped producing vehicles at its plant for several days. Vehicle sales in the domestic market have declined by 75%. The company sold a total of 35,293 units in the domestic market last May, compared to 1,42,454 units in April.
Maruti Suzuki’s smaller cars, such as the Alto and A-Pro, lost the most at 61 percent. The company sold 25,041 units of these vehicles in April, up from just 4,760 units last May. At the same time, car sales such as the Swift, Celerio, Ignis, Baleno and Dzire also fell 72 percent. Only 20,343 units of these vehicles were sold in May, up from 72,318 units in April.
The biggest losers were sales of the company’s medium-sized cedar CIS. In May, the company sold only 349 units of the car, up from 1,567 units in April. In addition, sales of utility vehicles have declined by about 755 percent. The division includes vehicles such as the company’s Vitara Breza, S-Cross and Artigar
