The year-end has come and it’s time for some attractive discounts. More than anything, it’s a clever ploy from the car manufacturer to push their sales. The consumers usually defer their new car purchases to the new year for two main reasons. There is a constant hope of new model with fresher appeal as it is usually at the beginning of the year when the car manufacturer brings in a new model, not to mention the Auto Expo which could have pretty exciting new launches. The year of registration of a vehicle purchase again plays a very important role in increasing the resale value of the car. But again, the new year also has the price hike lurking from behind. So, this becomes an ideal time for any car manufacturer to announce their share of discounts who are usually confused at this point whether or not to go for a new car purchase. What more, it helps the auto majors in clearing out their inventories from their sales outlets. Surprisingly, the petrol car inventories are not willing to move out of the sales outlets this time as if they are jinxed. So, Maruti India and General Motors have decided to do something of it to push the petrol car sales.
