Maruti Suzuki, as we know, suffered heavy production losses in early June due to a fire at its AC supplier’s facility in Manesar. As a result, the brand was forced to cut down on deliveries of several key models including the Ciaz.
Introduced in October 2014, the Ciaz has been averaging sales of over 5,000 units; however, Maruti could shift only 2,800 units in June, following the fire incident. Now though it seems the C-segment offering has regained momentum with sales of over 5,000 units in the previous month. The Ciaz, in fact, sold a total of 5,162 units in June 2016, translating to a healthy 146 per cent rise.
Adding the July figures, Maruti has sold a total of 105,434 units of the Ciaz since its launch in October 2014. What’s more, the brand has exported well over 15,000 units overseas including South America, Central America, Africa and the Middle East.
