These are very good numbers from Maruti-Suzuki. They have been able to sustain the momentum of the past few months. With Oct-10 being the auspicious period (in the North), I believe there would be better numbers in Oct-10.

As far as I have read (on the net), Tata's numbers have increased. So has been the case with HH & Bajaj (in Two-Wheelers). Will try to get hold of the numbers & post of not done by others.

It was in the news a long time back that GM owned some stake in the Multijet engines. Is it that GM doesn't have the rights here in India? I never understood why GM didn't use the 1.3 Multijet in the U-VA.

Note from Mod : Please continue the discussion in the September 2010 Sales thread
