Suzuki Motor boosted fiscal third quarter (to 31 December 2015) sales 9.9% year on year to JPY2,355.6bn though sales in Japan fell 2.6% to JPY753.5bn due to increased light motor vehicle tax and a fall in 'OEM' sales of rebadged models to other automakers. This was offset by a rise in overseas sales of 17% to JPY1,602.1bn due mainly to an increase in India sales.
