Covid-19 Pandemic: Maruti Suzuki’s Production Falls by 7 Percent in April
India’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki said its total production in April 2021 stood at 1,59,955 units, which has come down to 7 percent from March this year.
Its Chairman R.C Bhargav stated it was difficult to provide a sales outlook due to the uncertainties related to Covid-19 as well as production constraints. He also stated that the problem was not due to demand, but due to the shortage of vehicles, adding that the firm currently had pending customer bookings of more than two lakh vehicles.
The country’s largest carmaker was also keeping a close watch on the impact of rising steel prices and government orders limiting the use of oxygen by industries, as well as the continuing shortage of semiconductors.
