Maruti Suzuki says production volume likely to be hit in FY24. Here's why

Maruti Suzuki on Monday said that its production volume in the current fiscal could likely get hit due to unpredictability in the availability of electronic components, PTI reported. The company informed that shortage of such components had also impacted its production in the last financial year. In the fiscal year 2022-23, the carmaker produced a record 19.22 lakh units.

However, the OEM fell short of its target of taking the overall production to 20 lakh units in the last fiscal. In a regulatory filing, the company said, "As the supply situation of electronic components continues to be unpredictable, it might have some impact on the production volume in FY 2023-24 as well."

Last month, the company's total production, including passenger vehicles and light commercial vehicles, stood at 1,54,148 units, which was down 6% from 1,63,392 units in the year-ago period. The company's production of total passenger vehicles declined to 1,50,820 units last month as compared with 1,59,211 units in March of 2022.
