    Maruti Suzuki Posts Highest Ever Sales In 2023

    In CY2023, Maruti Suzuki posted its highest-ever yearly tally of 20,66,219 units as the SUV range did contribute big time to the significant milestone

    In December 2023, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) recorded a total of 1,37,551 units including a domestic sales tally of 1,06,492 units, sales to other OEM of 4,175 units and exports of 26,884 units.

    The Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara has been well received by customers since its launch in 2022 while the latest Brezza also made its way to the market in the same year.

In addition, Maruti Suzuki shipped 26,884 units abroad as against 21,796 units with a growth of 23.34 per cent. As a whole, MSIL posted 1,37,551 units as against 1,39,347 units with a slight dip of 1.2 per cent. In CY2023, its highest-ever yearly tally of 20,66,219 units was noted.
