Maruti reports 58% increase in July production
Passenger vehicle production stood at 1,67,825 units last month, as against 1,05,345 units in July 2020.

The country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India on Thursday said its total production in July increased by 58% on a yearly basis to 1,70,719 units. The company had produced a total of 1,07,687 units in the year-ago period, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) said in a regulatory filing.

“While the number of vehicles manufactured in July 2021 is higher than that of July 2020, a comparison is not meaningful because sales in July last year had a much lower base due to pandemic related disruptions,” the automaker said.

However, the number of vehicles manufactured in July this year remained on the lower side as compared to July 2018.

Passenger vehicle production stood at 1,67,825 units last month, as against 1,05,345 units in July 2020. Production of mini cars stood at 24,899 units last month as against 20,638 units a year ago.

While manufacturing of compact cars, comprising WagonR, Celerio, Ignis, Swift, Baleno and Dzire, rose to 90,604 units from 55,390 units earlier, MSI said.
