@slamnos Thanks for sharing this. Kudos to your efforts in compiling this comprehensive data.

I am actually surprised that Aurangabad, Maharashtra did not feature even in the 26--50 list. It is a next big happening city in MH after Mumbai-Pune-Nagpur. It would be at par with Nasik or above it but definitely above Kolhapur. Wanted to write a bit more but short on time.

Aurangabad is Ranked 55 with a volume of 9831 units & 0.38% market share

It is short of 1291 units compared to Kolhapur.

Wonderful compilation over there, Slamnos. Kudos.

The cities which record top 3 sales are the most populous ones in the country and hold quite robust economy. The buying power of an average citizen here is substantially better as against those in other localities. On the other hand, all major Indian cities are marred with mediocre infrastructure coupled with awful public transport system that leave people wanting for better livelihood.

To me, these high numbers does not represent any big achievement but point towards failing public transport system that forces citizens to utilize private modes of transport. Of course, Car makers and dealers would wish to expand their presence in these places and churn out more profits.

The case with any other City / Town is all same or still worse. It is not that the Government collects lesser taxes so that it has restricted funds to expend on development works; instead it is the complex system comprising of grants, concessions, Contractor -Bureaucrat nexus, Political willingness, vote bank, et al., that shifts the gravity from straight out development to personal gains.

Excellent data compilation. These stats are prime example to show how the state capitals are becoming the centers for action and pulling in the crowd. Take Bangalore for example which accounts for more than 70% of the cars sold in the state. This indicates that the standard of living, facilities, infrastructure,etc., in other parts of Karnataka hasn't improved or is not up to the par to afford cars.

This trend is not a good thing. Governments should not plan on improving and concentrating only the capital cities, rather start developing other locations/cities by dedicating certain industry to a location. This will provide equal opportunity for growth in all regions of the state as well as improve the standard of living in various locations and wont over crowd only main cities. This will thus allow the population to be spread across multiple regions in the state and hence the cars.

First of all, thanks slamnos for providing this detailed report on City wise car sales data - there are too many data to comprehend

From the Manufacturers in Cities, I saw Tata & Toyota were more than double their national average in Bangalore and I thought the reason might have been with the huge number of taxis, and this got confirmed when I saw the Models Vs Cities chart.

Etios in 3rd Position and Indica in 8th confirmed my belief. And Indica is also in 10th Position in Hyderabad and it is the ONLY Tata to be in Top-10 Cars in any of the Top-10 cities.

Intrigued by the numbers of Kerala, when cross-checked the Top-50 it turned out that Kerala has the most number of cities (6) in Top-50 list.

I have compiled the below table which shows the number of cities in Top-50 for a state, partitioned by 1-10, 11-25 and 26-50.

  • Kerala has most number of cities - 6 (Cochin, Calicut, Trivandrum, Thrissur, Kottayam, Malappuram), followed by Maharashtra and UP with 5 each.

  • 6 NE states (Meghalaya, Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh) don't have representation in Top-50 cities, along with Sikkim and Himachal Pradesh.

  • Kerala & MP have cities which are having more cars than the capital cities (Cochin & Indore respectively).

  • Everyone was ranting about Karnataka that Bangalore is the only city in Top-25, but Telangana & WB have only one city (Hyderabad & Kolkata) in Top-50 and that too in Top-10 - think about skewing of numbers.

  • Bangalore contributes about 67.8% of the total cars in Karnataka, but don't know about the corresponding percentages for Hyderabad & Kolkata since both the states didn't figure in the Top-10 states.

@Slamnos, fantastic data. Just noticed that the Innova seems missing from the statistics. Presume it's a typo in the MPV segment - presume it's there in the data.

Also wanted to check which RTOs did you include for Mumbai. Was it just MH01-MH03 (Mumbai), MH04 (Thane city) and MH43 ( Navi Mumbai) or did you also include MH47(the new RTO for northern suburbs), MH48 (Mira - Vasai), MH05(Kalyan), MH46 and MH06(Panvel/ Raigad). Loads of cars are registered in MH48, MH05, MH46 and MH06 to avoid Octroi and entry tax levied in Mumbai, Thane and Navi Mumbai. Can significantly distort data.

Yes, sorry its a typo mistake. However the volumes & statistics are with Innova including.

For Mumbai, I have considered Mumbai, Navi Mumbai & Thane, not included Vasai, Kalyan & Panvel

State wise sales break up for Apr-Sep 2016,

- Out of 14,92,652 cars sold in first of FY17, near to two-third of the sales were contributed from South & West Zone!

- South has three biggies – Kerala, Karnataka & TN contributing ~8% each to the national sales. AP+Telangana combined remains in close contention with 7% contribution.

- West Zone’s numbers is primarily controlled by Maharashtra (42% contribution to Zone’s numbers)! Gujarat Car Sales numbers are quite substantial as well.

- North has multiple pockets, but is dependent on UP & Delhi largely.

- WB & Assam emerge as the top two markets in East.
