Maruti Suzuki Cars lead the Sales for the month of August 2018
Leading Indian Automaker Maruti Suzuki is leading the sales for the last month i.e. August 2018. Incidentally Maruti Suzuki topped the sales for the month of July and June as well. The month of August this year, saw Maruti cars attain the top 6 positions in terms of sales. The Indian market is one of the major sources of sales for many leading car brands in the world. However, when it comes to the monthly sales figures, Maruti Suzuki always ends up as the key player; last two months being no exception.
As per the cumulative sales report of August 2018, Maruti Suzuki sold a total of 1,58,189 units last month. Though the company faced a dip in sales by almost 3.4 per cent compared to the same time last year, Maruti is still way ahead than Hyundai India who came second. The third rank holder is Honda with Honda Amaze.
The majority of the Indian population still prefer Maruti cars over any other models. The brand reputation which has developed over the years and the excellent service network in the country are some of the major factors for Maruti’s market success.
However, it may be notes that the sales volumes of various models is a bit low this time when we take the list of best-selling cars in July 2018. This is primarily due to the heavy floods which recently occurred in Kerala.
Here is the Sales figures for top-selling cars of August 2018:-
|Rank||Model||Sales Figures August-18|
|6||Maruti Vitara Brezza||13271|
|7||Hyundai Grand i10||11489|
|8||Hyundai Elite i20||11475|
Maruti Suzuki India is the largest car manufacturer in the country with a market share of over 50 percent and usually, seven out of the ten best-selling cars on a monthly basis are from Maruti Suzuki.
Without any surprise, Maruti Suzuki still dominates the car market in terms of sales figures. Meanwhile, it is interesting to notice foreign-origin brands such as Hyundai and Honda catching up in the market at a fast pace. Again, sales figures might not necessarily mean that a certain car is absolutely the best.
