Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) today announced the sales tally for the month of February 2023, with a total of 1,72,321 units sold, including 150,823 units sold domestically, 4,291 units sold to other OEMs, and 17,207 units exported. According to the country's largest automaker, the shortage of electronic components had only a minor impact on domestic vehicle production. The S-Presso and the Alto together recorded 21,875 units in the mini segment, outpacing 19,691 units and growing by 11.9 per cent year on year. A total of 79,898 units of compact cars, including the Baleno, the Celerio, the Dzire, the Ignis, the Swift, the Tour S, and the WagonR, were registered in February, up from 77,795 units with a positive year-on-year (YoY) sales increase of 2.7 per cent.
