Maruti Suzuki Rewards program is available at all company outlets, including True Value
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has launched a special loyalty program called ‘Maruti Suzuki Rewards’ for its customers in a bid to increase sales. Divided into four tiers, Member, Silver, Gold and Platinum; the program has been introduced at all company outlets such as Nexa, Arena or even True Value.
Customers can use the reward points earned through every transaction done at these outlets to claim benefits in terms of purchasing new cars, servicing existing cars, Maruti Suzuki Insurance policies, opting genuine spares or accessories, enrolling in Maruti Suzuki’s driving schools, customer referrals, etc. The existing AutoCard and MyNexa programs will be transitioned to Maruti Suzuki Rewards at no extra costs or loss in points.
In addition to the previously-mentioned tiers, active users of Maruti Suzuki Rewards will receive special badges as well. Through various gamification features, the company aims to improve user interaction. Winners of these sessions would be able to avail exclusive offers and benefits.
This is a cardless program and the customer needs to be registered on the company website to be a part of Maruti Suzuki Rewards. The complete details of each transaction will be sent to the customer’s registered mobile number. Maruti Suzuki believes that the initiative would enhance customer loyalty and thereby increase sales. The Indian automotive industry is apparently not going through the best of times due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Maruti Suzuki India Limited continues to hold pole position in terms of passenger vehicle sales in FY2020 despite facing adverse economic conditions in the country.

A good majority of the figure was contributed by the Baleno and Vitara Brezza while Ciaz and Alto sales remained subdued. The company commands a 51% market share (down from the last quarter by 1%).
