Maruti Suzuki Swift has reached an impressive milestone of selling 30 lakh units in India. First launched in 2005, this car became a trendsetter in its segment and has remained a favourite among Indian customers ever since. The introduction of the new Swift model in May 2024 has helped the long-standing Swift achieve 30 lakh sales.

Mr. Partho Banerjee, Senior Executive Officer of Marketing & Sales at Maruti Suzuki India Limited, reflected on this significant milestone, stating, “The Swift has transcended its role as a mere car for millions of owners—it embodies joy, liberty, and excitement. With each evolution, the Swift has consistently set higher standards, featuring advanced technology, modern design, and the unmistakable 'Swift DNA' that continues to resonate with customers. This achievement fills us with deep gratitude, and we extend our heartfelt thanks to all Swift owners nationwide.”

Launched in 2005 with pioneering features like climate control, airbags, and anti-lock braking system (ABS), the Swift achieved its first 10 lakh sales milestone in 2013, just 8 years after its debut. It surpassed 20 lakh sales in 2018 and has now exceeded the landmark of 30 lakh units sold, solidifying its status as an iconic, sporty hatchback.
