The new Maruti Suzuki price list will be applicable from September 25, 2019, across the country. Adding to the good news is the fact that this reduction of prices will be over and above the current promotional offers for the company’s vehicle range. Maruti Suzuki believes that price reduction will bring down the cost of acquisition for entry-level customers, boost customer sentiment and revive the market to create demand. Other companies like Honda, Nissan, Hyundai and Renault are also offering benefits to their customers.
Notably, the cut came after the company reported a 34.3 per cent fall in domestic sales in August. This is one of the biggest monthly drops in sales in recent times. However, Maruti Suzuki Chairman RC Bhargava remains hopeful that the numbers will be better in September.
"We expect that retail sales in September would witness an improvement over August. The booking levels have gone up compared to last month, have gone up substantially, and the expectation is that the 29th and 30th of this month will probably witness very high retail sale," Reuters recently quoted him as saying.
