Suzuki Swift one of the strongest in car sales
Suzuki Motors is well known Japanese car manufacturer. It has been making the consumers happy with its huge range of car models. In India it has its strong collaboration with Maruti Udhyog. Its Swift hatchback has done some amazing business across the globe and has managed to touch the 3 million sales mark in merely 8 years and 2 months. Exciting figures, aren’t they? Suzuki Motor Corporation is overwhelmed with this performance of the car. What is further interesting here is that 45% of these sales come from India, which means Maruti Swift, is absolutely a clear winner here.
Globally, Swift hatchback was introduced in 2004, while it came to India in 2005. If we branch off the sales of Suzuki’s Swift, about 13% of sales were from Japan, 45% belonged to India, 23% from Europe and the remaining from rest of the world. Right now, this smart hatchback is available in 125 countries across the globe.
Apart from being one of the coolest and the bestselling hatchbacks in the world, the car has also received numerous honors. In 2006 as well as in 2011, it received the car of the year award at ‘Automotive Researchers’ and Journalists’ Conference of Japan’. Besides these, there were few more awards that were presented to this hatchback in Europe and in India.
Apparently, for the Indian consumers, Maruti Suzuki will soon bring in the face-lifted version of Swift hatchback. However, nothing official has been made about the facelift of this car, but being seen on the Indian roads with some minor makeover. There is a huge possibility that the new Maruti Suzuki Swift model might hit the showrooms. Hopefully, the firm will soon make the news official and introduce the face-lifted Swift model in the Indian car bazaar.
