Maruti Suzuki production gets three times in May!

New Delhi: 

India’s largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) said he had seen it a threefold increase in production over the past month. In the regulatory file, auto major reported a total production of 164,859 units last month compared to 40,924 units by May 2021 as it sees promising signs of overcoming long-term chip shortages.

A global semiconductor or microchip crunch that has plagued the automotive industry for nearly two years is showing the first signs of globalization.

“The shortage of electrical equipment has had a small impact on car production during the month,” said the automaker. However, it also noted that the production figures for May 2022 are not comparable to those for May 2021 as the company’s performance in May 2021 was significantly affected due to the COVID-19-related disruption.

MSI reported production of passenger vehicles at 160,459 units last month, compared to 40,628 units in May 2021. Manufacture of small cars including Alto and S Presso at 26,199 units last month compared to 4,896 units last year.

Manufacture of small vehicles, including WagonR, Celerio, Ignis, Swift, Baleno, and Dzire, has risen to 84,810 units from 25,130 units previously, MSI said.

Similarly, production of used vehicles – Gypsy, Ertiga, S-Cross, Vitara Brezza, and XL6 – increased to 36,941 units last month from 9,106 units in the corresponding 2021 month. The company reported an increase in Eeco bakkie production by 10,692 units last month compared to 962 units in May 2021. MSI said production of light Super Carry vehicles increased to 4,400 last month, compared to 296 last month.
