Maruti Suzuki ranked 1 in the domestic market and the exports market for Quarter 1 of the Financial year 2021-2022. Maruti Suzuki also dominated the top 10 cars of Quarter 1. This Quarter has been a period of three months where Maruti has re-established its dominance in the Indian Car market. However, concerns with regard to market share drop remain a challenge for Maruti.

With CNG technology catching up for Maruti as an alternative fuel type it remains interesting to see how competition catches up. Tata Motors, Hyundai, and the rest have started working on the promotion of CNG fuel type, however, Maruti seems to get its volumes running with regards to CNG. Also, currently, CNG is available only in the Arena channel of Maruti Suzuki and not the Nexa Channel. Hence, volumes would further build-up when CNG fuel type would be introduced in Nexa.
