- Maruti Suzuki has not yet delivered about 1.40 lakh CNG models
- Recently launched cars back order exceeded 1.30 lakh units
We've all heard of ridiculous waiting periods for the past few months when it comes to passenger vehicles, no matter the make, model, price or segment. So it's no surprise that India's largest automaker, Maruti Suzuki, has a pretty heavy order book right now.
As per the available details, Maruti Suzuki has approximately 4.10 units pending purchase orders as of October 2022. Among them, about 1.30 lakh units are said to be from the range of its recently launched models and variants.
Coming to the CNG segment, Maruti has an order book of approximately 1.40 lakh units, and this includes models such as the Alto 800, Wagon R, S-Presso, Eeco, Celerio, Swift, Dzire and Ertiga. This update comes just a week after the automaker introduced S-CNG iterations of the Baleno and XL6, which is expected to push the backlog up. Of the approximately 1.40 lakh CNG vehicles yet to be delivered to customers, Ertiga is said to have the lion's share of the pie. According to Maruti, MPV accounts for about two-thirds of the brand's pending orders.
