Maruti Suzuki has officially confirmed that it sold 1,72,535 units in January 2023, representing a month-on-month (MoM) increase in sales of nearly 12 per cent over the 1,54,379 units sold in January last year. Out of the total 1.73 lakh cars sold by Maruti Suzuki, domestic sales accounted for 1,51,367 units, sales to other OEMs accounted for 3,775 units, and the remaining 17,393 units were exported to other markets. The firm also claimed that the scarcity of electronic components had a minor impact on vehicle production, primarily in domestic models. It asserts that Maruti Suzuki vehicles made up 7 out of the top 10 selling models in India in January 2023, taking the top 4 spots. Last month, the Wagon R, the Swift, and the Baleno were the top-selling vehicles in India, with the Maruti Suzuki Alto coming in second. Additionally, the company's market share in the SUV sector increased from 10.9 to 15 per cent.

The new-generation Brezza and the Grand Vitara hybrid SUV were launched last year, which can be credited with the growth of the SUV market. The Jimny 5-door and the Fronx crossover were two new SUVs introduced by Maruti Suzuki at the Auto Expo 2023 last month. According to the company, these vehicles will aid in their quest for the "number one position in the SUV segment in FY24."

Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door and Fronx bookings can be made at any Nexa dealership in the country for a token amount of Rs 25,000 and Rs 10,000, respectively. Around April or May is when both SUVs are anticipated to hit the market. In India, the Jimny 5-door will compete with the Mahindra Thar and the Force Gurkha, whereas the Fronx will face off against other reasonably priced compact SUVs like the Tata Punch, the Nissan Magnite, and the Renault Kiger.

Recently, Maruti Suzuki's domestic sales surpassed the milestone of 2.5 crore (25 million), according to an announcement made by Suzuki Motor Corporation, a subsidiary of the Japanese automaker Suzuki. Maruti Suzuki India achieved this sales milestone on January 9, 2023, making it the country's largest automaker. Maruti Suzuki is India's oldest operating automobile manufacturer. Suzuki and Maruti Udyog, which would later become Maruti Suzuki, agreed to form a joint venture in 1982. In December 1983, the manufacturer unveiled its first vehicle, the Maruti 800. Since then, the company has accomplished a number of significant milestones, including becoming the country's leading mass-market car brand.
