Maruti S Presso being Discontinued because of Low Sales

July 11, 2022
Maruti Suzuki has 14 passenger vehicles for sale in India through Arena and Nexa dealerships. Along with the Alto, the S-Presso is at the entry level of the Maruti Suzuki range. The S-Presso is the second cheapest vehicle in the Indian car giant's range.

This small car is offered in Std, LXi, VXi, VXi Plus trims. It is offered with value-added options such as AMT transmission and CNG fuel options that keep running costs under control. In a recent exercise, Maruti Suzuki dropped some of its variants from the line-up.

The company did not disclose the reason for this move. As of June 2022, Maruti S-Presso sales have dropped to just 652 units. This is the lowest ever monthly sales released by Maruti S-Presso, excluding the closing months of April 2020 and May 2020.

In the first months after its launch, S-Press sales averaged 10,000 units. However, sales slowly declined to approximately 5-7 thousand units per month.

Maruti Suzuki S-Presso Sales are down

Considering the S-Presso sales report for the last 12 months, a total of 64 thousand units were sold for an average monthly volume of 5.3 thousand units. It was a big surprise when sales dropped to just 652 units in June 2022. There is no update as to why there was such a huge drop in S-Presso sales. In June 2021, S-Presso sales stood at 4,926 units. This represents an 87% year-on-year decline, while the month-on-month decline is 85%.

Maruti Suzuki S-Presso Variants Discontinued
