Comment of the day – Rajat Singh – “It does matter for dealers because they earn more through service, insurance, accessories, extended warranties than sale and for Suzuki also it would affect them in the long run as lesser vehicles to service at Maruti service centre would result in lower demand of spares which earns them a big chunk of profit, I wonder what would happen once they start selling Toyota Brezza and Ertiga (officially mini Innova?). Suzuki has surely took a big risk in order to learn about EVs because the Corolla segment isn’t very big in size itself to gain huge sales through Maruti Corolla.”
