Business – Maruti crosses one lakh unit retail sales in Dec

NEW DELHI: The country’s largest carmaker, Maruti Suzuki, has become the first auto company in India to cross the one lakh retail sales in a month milestone, clocking 1,00,874 units sales in December 2009.

“This has been a big achievement for us, considering the fact that customers usually stay away from buying cars in year end. In fact, we embarked on a mission to break this tendency and cross the one lakh retail sales,” Mr Mayank Pareek, Executive Office r (Marketing and Sales), Maruti Suzuki said.

The previous highest ever retail sales achieved by the company was in October 2009 at 81,800 units.

“Then (in October), we had the benefit of festival season and Diwali purchases. But to cross the one lakh mark in December … 1,00,874 units to be precise … it will take quite a while to break this record,” he said.

MSI has been able to push sales in December through aggressive marketing campaigns and sales promotion besides offering discounts ranging between Rs 15,000 to Rs 30,000 depending on models.

“We adopted a strategy of three Cs — capture, contact and convert. We rigorously pushed to bring customers to showroom and keep in touch with them till they purchased and it worked,” Mr Pareek said.

He said sales have been across all the models and also across all the different regions of the country. – PTI
