This growth can be mainly attributed to high customer acceptance of the New models of Etios and Etios Liva, launched recently. The Etios and Etios Liva sold 8,637 units in March. The sales of Innova and Fortuner have also contributed to this growth. On the other hand, increase in excise duty of SUV’s and implementation of increased road tax in some of the states has helped clear the stock of pre budget vehicles.
