Last June proved to be very good for the Indian auto sector. The business is once again on the path to relief from a lockdown recovering from the corona epidemic. There was a huge increase in vehicle sales during the period. Meanwhile, Maruti Suzuki’s 7-seater car has become the best-selling multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) in the country.
According to data, Maruti Suzuki sold a total of 9,920 units of Ertiga in June, 200 per cent more than the same month last year. In June last year, the company had sold only 3,306 units. Last year, when the corona epidemic hit the country, a lock-down was put in place at that time and the sales of vehicles were heavily impacted.
