Maruti Suzuki Sales Analysis - April 2021

Maruti Suzuki records domestic wholesales of 1,35,879 units in April 2021 and registered a decline of 7 percent compared to March 2021. Since April 2020 had a lockdown due to COVID19 and almost zero sales, a comparison with April 2020 will not have much relevance.


April 2021 was a tough month for all the automakers as the nation was grappling with the second wave of pandemic and the many state governments had announced lockdown to control the spread. The result was evident in the sales volumes and the auto industry declined by over 15 percent in April 2021 compared to March 2021.


April 2020 was a complete washout due to the nationwide lockdown and hence compression with March 2021 will be much apt.

  • Wagon-R became the best-selling car for April 2021. It was both Maruti and India’s No.1 selling car for the month.

  • Maruti Suzuki Swift slipped to the second spot in April 2021 as it recorded a massive 16 percent drop in volumes over March 2021.

  • The erstwhile bestseller Alto ranked third in the list with dispatches of 17,303 units and had a flat growth when compared to Mar'21.

  • Baleno volumes declined one of the highest Month-on-Month in April 2021 and took the fourth spot in the table.

  • Dzire's rise in volumes is surprising. The model which was struggling without a diesel option grew 23 percent, MoM. The model had also risen to the Top 5 selling cars in India for April 2021 (source).

  • 11,469 units of Eeco sold in Apr’21! Maruti seems to have successfully recover Omni volumes from Eeco.
