While the numbers suggest a significant hike in sales in May 2022 as compared to the same month a year ago and the April-May period this year, as compared to the same period a year ago, the automaker claims that its domestic sales were impacted due to supply chain disruption. As it hinted, the supply chain disruption in microchips created trouble for Maruti Suzuki's vehicle production. However, that didn't impact the export. It also said that comparing the numbers it registered in May this year with the same month a year ago is not right, as May 2021 was marred by Covid related disruptions.
