Maruti Registers 5,000 Units In Bookings Via Online Sales Platform: Dispatches 2,300 Units

India's largest car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki, has announced that it has received 5,000 bookings via its online platform since the lockdown has been lifted partially. The brand's Manesar facility has also partially resumed operations, with limited manpower considering the partial lockdown is here to stay for the foreseeable future. MSIL also said that their facility has dispatched 2,300 vehicles to dealers across the country.

The standard operating procedures dictate that all the brand's dealerships have to comply with all social distancing rules and guidelines. Customers will be served only after they book an appointment before visiting their closest dealer, and staff will cater to customers and prospective buyers on a one-on-one basis.
