Maruti Suzuki reported 54% fall in total sales at just 57,428 units for the month of June 2020. In comparison, Maruti had sold a total of 124,708 units in June 2019. Domestic sales fell by 54% to 53,139 units in June 2020 compared to 114,861 units in June 2019. Maruti’s exports were also down by 56.4% at 4289 units for the month of June 2020.

In terms of product line wise break-down, the sales of mini cars like Alto and Wagon-R was down nearly 42% at 10,458 units. The compact segment comprising of Swift, Celerio, Ignis, Baleno and Dzire, fell 57.6% at 26,696 units. The mid-sized sedan, Ciaz, reported 76% lower sales at just 553 units as the pressure of COVID-19 and the lag effect showed up.

Even the utility vehicles consisting of the Vitara Brezza, S-Cross and Ertiga fell by 45.1% at 9764 units. The quarterly numbers were a lot more disappointing. For the Jun-20 quarter, the total sales were down a whopping 81% at a mere 76,599 units. The COVID-19 has disrupted flow of materials, logistics and labour supply leading to a huge lag effect.
