Discounts on Maruti Suzuki cars fell 30 percent during the second quarter ended September compared to the first quarter, after pent-up and festive demand swept through inventories in showrooms.

The average discount on Maruti Suzuki cars between July-September stood at Rs 17,300, a sharp reduction from the Rs 25,000 per car offered between April-June. The second quarter last year also saw the highest-ever average discount per car offered by Maruti Suzuki, at Rs 25,761.

Speaking to analysts Ajay Seth, Chief Financial Officer, Maruti Suzuki India, said: “The average discount during Q2 was Rs 17,300. These were much lower than the same period last year, which is when we were clearing the BS-IV stocks and running schemes during the same quarter of over Rs 25,000 per vehicle.”

Other carmakers have not shared their discount details.
