Maruti Suzuki posts slower India car sales growth in February

MUMBAI (NewsRise) -- Maruti Suzuki India, the nation's largest car maker, reported a slower sales growth in February, after the automaker's move to replenish inventories at dealerships had caused sales to surge in January.

Maruti's total sales rose almost 12% in February to 120,599 units. While car sales grew 1.6%, dispatches of utility vehicles, including Ertiga, S-Cross and Vitara Brezza, more than doubled to 17,863 units. Maruti, traditionally associated with small cars, has been introducing bigger models to meet the rising demand for such vehicles.
