Country's biggest passenger carmaker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) on Friday said its highest selling model Alto has crossed the 20 lakh cumulative sales milestone.
Alto crossed the 20 lakh cumulative sales mark recently, 11 years and 9 months after its launch, Maruti Suzuki said in a statement.
Maruti Suzuki Alto has been the highest selling car in the domestic market for the past seven years. It has also been rated as the highest selling small car in the world for the past two years, the company claimed.
"Alto's superior fuel efficiency, compact sleek design, good maneuverability and overall low cost of ownership are the attributes that make it the best car for the first time buyers," MSI Chief Operating Officer, (Marketing and Sales) Mayank Pareek said.
The car was also the fastest to clock 10 lakh sales within eight years and three months of its launch in 2000. In June 2012, it broke its own record by clocking the next ten lakh units within a mere three years and six months, the company added.
Alto became the only car brand in India to cross the three lakh units sales mark in an year in 2010-11.
