Maruti Suzuki, like most other carmakers in India, has seen a slide in sales due to the ongoing supply chain issues and chip crisis. The carmaker issued a statement today saying, “The shortage of electronic components had some impact on the production of vehicles in FY 2021-22. The Company took all possible measures to minimise the impact. As the supply situation of electronic components continues to be unpredictable, it might have some impact on the production volume in FY 2022-23 as well."

Maruti Suzuki is on an overdrive of new launches this year. The carmaker has already launched the new Celerio and its CNG version, WagonR and the 2022 Baleno recently. It is also expected to launch the facelift versions of Ertiga and XL6 MPVs later this month. According to reports, Maruti Suzuki will also launch the facelift version of the Vitara Brezza SUV. Later this year, it will also drive in a new compact SUV to take on rivals like Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
