Thoughts About The 2,000 Units Booked

We find it interesting that Maruti has managed just 2,000 bookings for the XL6. Compare that with booking numbers from the also recently launched KIA Seltos and there's a difference of 30,000. We know the company has invested a lot in research and development for the XL6, but they need to prime their marketing and advertising teams to step up. 2,000 units for a new car is rather poor.
