Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) reported 3.8 per cent decline in sales in the domestic market to 70,020 units in June from 72,812 units in the same month last year.

On the other hand, HMIL said its domestic sales grew 11.1 per cent to 30,402 units in June this year from 27,366 units in same month last year.

Commenting on the sales, HMIL director (marketing  and sales) Arvind Saxena said: "The market continued to be slow but Hyundai sales have grown partially due to the success of New Verna. We have received over 21,000 customer bookings for the New Verna so far and we are trying to fulfil the demand."

Last fiscal, cars sales in India had grown by 29.73 per cent but started slowing down this financial year due to fuel price hikes, rising interest rates and increased product cost.

Yet, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) reported 94.72 per cent jump in its sales at 12,034 units during June this year as against 6,180 units in the same month last year.

"The growth in sales is a clear indication of customer's confidence in Toyota products. We have increased Etios production as a result of which its waiting period has now come down to 15-20 days," TKM deputy managing director (marketing) Sandeep Singh said.
