The 2018 Maruti Swift, launched in February at the Auto Expo has received excellent response from Indian buyers. In April 2018, it was the second highest selling car in India managing to outsell the Maruti Alto.
Sales of the new Maruti Swift stood at 22,776 units in April while the Alto managed 21,233 units. Interestingly, though, despite posting such a high number, the Swift was unable to match its April 2017 tally of 23,802 units.
Overall, it was the Maruti Dzire that claimed top honours in April registering total sales of 25,935 units. It was the highest selling car in India from December 2017 to February 2018 before losing out to the Alto in March. MSIL outclasses competitors with seven models in the top ten list and a market share of 55.5% with total sales of 1,63,434 units.
The rest of the spots in the top 10 were grabbed by Hyundai's i20 (12,369), Grand i10 (12,174), and Creta (9,390). HMIL commanded a market share of 15.87% selling 46,735 units in April 2018, followed by Mahindra (20,041), Tata (17,235), and Toyota (13,037).
