New Delhi, February 9th, 2012: Car market leader Maruti Suzuki India Limited crossed the 10 million cumulative domestic sales mark here today. It is the only automobile company in India to cross this milestone.
The Company, which had rolled out its first car in December 1983, attained 5 million domestic sales in February 2006.
The next 5 million domestic sales have been achieved in six years.
The 10 millionth vehicle, a Red Swift Vxi, was dispatched to Coimbatore today morning from the Company's Manesar plant.
While Maruti 800 and Omni powered sales for almost two decades, the Alto has been India's best-selling car for the last over 7 years. In recent years, the success of WagonR and Swift, among others, has accelerated the Company's progress towards the 10 million mark.
Dedicating this milestone to customers, Shinzo Nakanishi, Managing Director and CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, "Maruti Suzuki's success story is closely linked with the success story of India in the last two decades.
