The Indian automotive market has not been doing particularly well since the beginning of this year. The month of April recorded the lowest sales in the passenger vehicles segment in the last eight years, witnessing a decline of 17.07%. The same trend continued in the month of May as well. All major manufacturers again reported a decline in sales for May.
Maruti Suzuki too has had to witness low sales for the last couple of months, so much so that they plan to shut down production of their vehicles for 7 days. This decision comes in the face of low demand for cars and Maruti Suzuki needs to clear up the stocks of vehicles already built up for so many days.
Maruti Suzuki India had already cut production by 9.6% to 147,669 units of vehicles in April this year from 163,368 units of vehicles in April 2018. Maruti Suzuki has now announced a further cut in vehicle production by over 18% in May, according to a regulatory filing. This is the forth consecutive month for Maruti Suzuki that they have had to cut productions.
