Maruti Suzuki Ertiga sales cross one lakh mark in India
Maruti Suzuki has stated that Ertiga sales have reached a total of 101,041 units in just 17 months of launch on 12th April 2012. A winner right from the time of launch, Ertiga MPV is the quickest in its segment to achieve sales of over 100,000 units in this time frame.
The Ertiga sold overseas features only a 1.4 liter K Series engine and gets two transmission options which include a 4 speed automatic gearbox and a 5 speed manual gearbox while India receives one petrol and one diesel engine option. Price of Ertiga MPV commences from INR 6.33 lakhs (ex showroom Delhi).
India will soon get many more MPVs. This might affect the sales of Ertiga, as there is no real competitor to the vehicle in the entire auto industry currently. By 2014/15, India will have Honda Mobilio (amaze based MPV), and Datsun Go+. Both these are just like the Ertiga, and will also be priced in the same bracket.
