Second generation Ertiga was launched in November 2018.
XL6 was launched in August 2019.
Combined sales units of over 1 lakh achieved in 1 year.
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is one of the success stories of the last year, despite the slowdown in sales in the market. It has consistently outsold the competition and has been a leader by a fair margin when it comes to sales figures.
The new generation of Ertiga made things a little more premium than the original Ertiga, and it was launched one year ago, in November 2018. The XL6 took that idea further and made it a premium MPV that was sold only at Nexa dealerships. As such, it doesn’t have the numbers that the Ertiga possesses, but it certainly contributed.
The Ertiga has sold a minimum of 6284 units in a month (September 2019) and a maximum of 9222 (July 2019). On average, it has sold 7701 units per month, contributing 92,411 units to the overall figure. The XL6, in the three months that it has been on sale, has garnered sales of 2356 units, 3840 units, and 4328 units, contributing 10,524 units.
The overall figure is thus 1,02,935 units for the Ertiga and XL6, which is a commendable feat considering how slow the new car sales market has been during this period. The XL6’s relatively low numbers are due to its being a premium product, which is why it has quite a high starting price (there aren’t any base variants as such) and it is offered only in a six-seater configuration, with captain seats for the second row.
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is an MPV that has very little competition, but the other three-row cars available in the price range include the Mahindra Marazzo. The Marazzo’s prices also overlap with the XL6, both of whom are trying to garner market share in the price bracket below the undisputed king of premium MPVs, the Toyota Innova Crysta.
