Maruti Suzuki continues to dominate the Indian carmaker, despite the restrictions imposed by the Corona epidemic and the impact on production and delivery due to supply chain problems. In December last year, Maruti emerged as the top car maker after Tata Motors.
Maruti Suzuki’s dominance here means that most of the best selling cars in the auto sector were from Maruti’s showrooms. Eight models of Maruti were included in the list of top 10 cars sold in India last month. Here are the top 10 cars sold in India in Decemberâ€¦
The boxy hatchback comes at the top when it comes to sales. Maruti’s WagonR seems to have been in demand in its new generation despite all the chip related issues. Maruti sold 19,729 units of WagonR last month, which is up from 17,684 units sold in December, 2020.
