Maruti Suzuki sales up 22%
New Delhi: India's largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki Tuesday reported a 22 per cent rise in sales in February to 96,650 vehicles -- its best performance till date.
"This is the highest ever total monthly sales in the company's history (previous highest 95,649 units in January 2010)," said a company statement.
The company's domestic sales during February grew 20 per cent to touch 84,765 units while exports rose 38.8 per cent to 11,885 units.
Maruti's sales are expected to dip at least slightly going forward after the company's decision to recall about 100,000 A-Star cars from the Indian market to replace a faulty fuel pump.
