Maruti Suzuki India said on Monday it clocked 11 per cent increase in production during August to 1.23 lakh units.
The country's largest passenger car manufacturer had produced a total of 1.11 lakh units in the same month of last year, the company said in a statement.
Passenger vehicles production stood at 1.21 lakh units last month as compared to 1.10 lakh units in August 2019, marking a growth of 10 per cent.
The production of mini cars comprising Alto and S-Presso models was at 22,208 units as against 13,814 units in the year-ago month, up 61 per cent.
A week ago, the company posted domestic sales of 1.16 lakh units in August, marking a growth of over 20 per cent from 97,061 units in the same month of last year.
It was an indication that Indians are buying new cars as Covid-led lockdown restrictions ease and people practice social distancing by preferring to opt for private transport.
