Rahul
Not sure if its correct. Percentage population owning is not the same as total numbers. Couple of years ago I had read that Bengaluru has the maximum number of two wheelers and in fact the numbers were equal to next few cities combined.

The raw data is from an official source. The Analysis and grouping is done by me.

How are the four zones defined?

Some clarification on this would help. Thanks!
Hi, the degrowth of Chennai doesnt include places like Kanchipuram, as this forms a separate district, similarly even for Bangalore places like Malur, Kanakapura which doesnt constitute for Bangalore Urban district doesnt qualify for sales under Bangalore as shown in this report. Data constitutes of sales registered in RTOs which are associated with the particular city.

As per Zones the classification are as follows
South: Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Kerala & Pondicherry
North: Delhi, UP, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, J&K, Himachal, Chandigarh & Uttarakhand
West: Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chattishgarh, Goa, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Diu & Daman
East: North East, West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkand, Orissa, Andaman & Nicobar.

Coimbatore is actually a very good market for cars . The second most preferred destintion in TN.

In terms of cars/1000 Mangalore might be above average but in terms of absolute numbers especially in premium cars it's no where close to Top 10 cities.
I think it is 40 per thousand for Mangalore.It would be nice if someone could find the latest information.

The population is taken from wikipedia which may not be up-to-date or include the larger "metropolitan area" in most cases.
Kochi and Calicut have UA population of nearly 2 million . I wonder why this population was not taken into account.

It seriously makes me wonder what all road tax collections in the state translates into. Even if the government were to spend a fraction of what they earned via road taxes on land transport infrastructure, situation would have been been drastically different.

I'm sure this analysis has some interesting insights in store.
Kochi UA population is more than 2 million . The same for Calicut ,Thrissur ,TVM etc. This is what the Kerala govt in the last census. So when you calculate the cars per thousand this population has to be considered and not just the city population because in Kerala lot of people reside outside city limits . Although I agree that there is an increased car sales in Kerala the density per thousand is a but skewed as the population figures are not right. Someone hopefully will set this right. The bet solution around it is to take the district population and count the number of cars . I think this is the most scientific way of finding car ownership.The density of population is very high in Kerala . Coupled with high car sales there will always be traffic jams as density of cars per sq km is high. This should not be confused with high car ownership. The roads is most Kerala cities are still narrow and infrastructure development has not kept pace with other Indian cities. That is another reason for traffic jams . Would welcome comments .

Very interesting stats!
Curious to know the sales trend of premium/luxury vehicles (above 30 lacs). Any data on the same?

Unfortunately few European OEMs do not share their details. The information remains a secret to all.

But I believe it follows similar trend as Upper Sedans and SUVs

The fact that three cities from the tiny, non- industrialist State of Kerala has made it to the list reinforces the consumerist culture of the State. The State also scores high on conspicuous consumption and what better product than a car to 'keep up with the Jonses'.


But given the poor roads and the lack of land to built new ones, travelling on the roads, which is now a nightmare will become next to impossible soon.

Wow Bengaluru seems to have have the highest growth in terms of auto sales despite Karnataka having one of the highest taxes. Many luxury cars have opened up shops in Bengaluru and in my lane itself i see each house having minimum 2 cars.
Bengaluru's infrastructure cannot handle such a growth. Any amount of flyovers will not solve if it continues. We need more smart cities and IT spreading to those as well.
A well organised planned public transport system seems to be a solution but if it takes so many years to get a metro i do not see a quick solution nearby.

In Singapore it is very expensive to own and drive a car. Wary of the fact that uncontrolled growth in the number of vehicles will result in traffic jams in road scarce Singapore, the government has implemented a range of measures to manage car ownership and usage. These include the Certificate of Entitlement (COE), Vehicle Quota System (VQS), road taxes and Electronic Road Pricing (ERP). All motor vehicles must be registered with the Land Transport Authority (LTA).

Those are interesting statistics! 50% new cars owned are in the top 10 cities was a surprising fact to know. More importantly, no level of good public transport (be it metro, BRTS, monorail,etc.) or professional self-drives (Zoom, etc.) can stop people from buying new cars.
Month on month these numbers keep growing and the roads are same, their width is same, time at which people travel is same. This indicates how more logged future jams would be.

Another interesting fact to know was Delhi/NCR along has more sales than combined either of (BLR+HYD+MAA) or (AHM+BOM+PNQ)!! Metro service is probably not appealing to the residents but roads like Noida - Greater Noida Eway or DND/Barapulla are more appealing for a racy drive!

I think the reason for that is Kerala industries are all located in the Persian Gulf ;-)

4 Chennai
5 Alappuzha
6 Shimla
7 Vadodara
8 Cherthala
9 Coimbatore
10 Thiruvananthapuram

I do not think that he cars per thousand is the highest in Kerala .I think Delhi and Chandigarh still take that position. One cannot calculate the cars per thousand populations from the sales in a year. There are some smaller Kerala towns which have a high car ownership but you you take the total number of cars and calculate with the whole population then it would give the right figure. The UA or district population have not been taken into consideration while calculating the car ownership.

The best was to do it is to calculate the district population and total cars in the district.I would welcome if anyone could get hold of the statistics.It is true that Kerala has a high car ownership though not historically. All this has happened over the past ten years.
