Maruti Suzuki has been recording a high demand for their Swift, Baleno, Dzire and Vitara Brezza offerings in India. The four cars combined, have registered 1,10,000 units of pending orders, waiting to be delivered to customers.
According to moneycontrol, the company is planning to increase production in its Gujarat plant to reduce waiting periods for these products.
The all-new Maruti Swift was launched in February this year and immediately made it to the top-selling cars list. The Swift registered almost 1 lakh bookings within the first two months of its launch. It ranked fourth in India's top-selling cars in FY 2017-18.
The Maruti Dzire launched in India almost a year ago. It is currently the best-selling car in the segment. The company recorded 1,00,000 units of sales within the first five months of its launch. The sedan offering from Maruti ranked second in the top-selling car list last fiscal year.
Maruti registered sales of 1.72 lakh units by the end of April 2018. While Hyundai India came in second at just 59,744 during the same period. This shows the demand for the Maruti Suzuki products in India.
The Maruti Vitara Brezza, which sold almost 1.50 lakh units in the last financial year, is expected to achieve a similar sales target this year as well. The Baleno offering is also expected to receive a similar sales number in 2018 fiscal.
Maruti leads the list for the top-selling cars in India. Currently, the company owns 55 percent of the market share in the Indian auto industry.
Thoughts On The 1.1 Lakh Pending Deliveries From Maruti
Maruti currently has just one production line in its Gujarat plant, producing the Baleno. The company hopes to improve this capacity to 2.5 lakh units by the end of this year. Maruti has plans to add two more lines in its Gujarat plant, increasing the overall capacity to 7.5 lakh units by 2020.
