Discount Offers on Maruti Suzuki on these cars till Festive season: The country’s largest car company Maruti Suzuki India has said that the discounts and offers on its model are only for the festive season. The company is currently offering offers ranging from cash discounts to extended warranties. In the festive season, the company’s sales have recorded a jump of 18-20%. However, the company has said that it is too early to say anything about the crisis of lethargy. The picture will be cleared somewhat in the coming two months.
Shashank Srivastava, executive director, marketing and sales, Maruti Suzuki Limited India, said, “We have obviously tried to revive the market but we cannot have high level offers all the time, so they are not sustainable.” The company hopes that the current month will be better in terms of sales as it is better than the same period last year.
Srivastava said that it is better and if we talk about the first week of October, which was the period of Navratri, the booking and retail has been better than the previous year. Shrivastava said that sales of vehicles including diesel models and 8 cars conforming to BS-VI standards have been good and sales are up. Apart from this, the recently launched car S-Preso has more than 10,000 bookings. He said that the company has already stopped production of BS-IV cars, instead of which BS-VI has been introduced.
Srivastava said that for the rest of the models, the decision to stop BS-IV production would be taken keeping in view the level of inventory. However, he also said that it is too early to say that the auto sector is out of slack and will take at least two months to say clearly about it.
