Will be interesting to see this data for Hyderabad before and after the states split. I was in Hyderabad for a couple of weeks last month and I saw definite reduction in traffic congestion.

The car sales in a near should not be mixed up with car ownership. They are entirely two different entities. Historically cities like Chandigarh,Mangalore ,Indore have had very high car ownerships . So naturally we will not find an explosion in car buying habits but if one looks at showrooms these are rthe cities that have all the car showrooms be it the premium,non premium or luxury.

You are blessed !

I am beginning to doze of at the wheel these days.

Most probable cause for relatively low traffic is the market condition. There seems to be slump in market these days, one of the contributing factors being failed monsoon.

Chandigarh has the highest per-capita cars India. Here the list.

1 Chandigarh
2 Delhi
3 Panaji
4 Chennai
5 Alappuzha
6 Shimla
7 Vadodara
8 Cherthala
9 Coimbatore
10 Thiruvananthapuram
Somehow this made me laugh when I looked at No.5 and No.8. Ah, the things you can find on the internet .

Alappuzha is a town in Kerala with a population of less than 2L.
Cherthala is a smaller town about 20km from Alappuzha (sitting between Alappuzha and Kochi) with a population of less than 50,000.

Population does not matter. This list is for per capita car ownership, that is number of cars owned per person.

My point was, Cherthala is not a town of a class by which statistics can be made (Its roughly like comparing a rich, residential XYZ Layout in Bangalore where almost all the houses will have a car and putting that XYZ Layout on the top of the top ten list of towns with highest per-capita-car ownership).

May be the list is of the top 10 RTOs, which can be inaccurate because there are cities that are comprised of multiple RTO divisions. Bangalore itself has 6 or 7 RTOs I believe.

Cherthala is gulf-town. Lots of expatriates, and where places like 'pension hill' (colloquial) exist since there are only retired people there. Maybe the remittances has to do with the high density of car ownership? But yes, I do agree that the population is not much of a sample size statistically speaking.

Overall, Kerala could be the top state in terms of per capita pwnership (ex. delhi). Real estate, education , cars and healthcare are the top expenditures of a middle class Keralite - A true consumer state. If it was a country, the trade deficit would be off the charts.

Hello everyone, I realise this was started nearly a year ago. But I was hoping for an update on this data. I was wondering from where was the city-wise data of car sales sourced? It would be great if anyone could let me know. Siam does not have it.

Thanks and best

Try to include data of cars registered in Vasai, Panvel and Kalyan-Dombivali, will give a much clear picture of Mumbai.

Region-wise 1st quarter sales by Economic Times:

North India: 827572
West India: 873009
South India: 776455
East India: 311336

Compared to last year, growth in North India is definitely slowing down. It's South & West India that are surging!
