Default July 2017 : Indian Car Sales Figures & Analysis














NOTES:

1: Thanks to the team at Auto Punditz for sharing these sales numbers with us!

2: Only cars that sell 500+ units (and thus, the relevant ones) have been included in the gainers & losers chart.

3. These manufacturer-reported sales numbers are factory dispatches to dealerships. They are NOT retail sales figures to end customers.

Ford endeavor was the star for Ford this month. GST seems to have helped its cause. What's really astounding is that it sold more than the Figo

The mighty Innova numbers seem to have covered the last month's sorry figure. Again a GST roll out phenomenon.

The Baleno is far away from any of its competitors and it's numbers are mind boggling.

Someone bought a GT-R last month which is the only joy in an otherwise sorry as usual month for Nissan. Somehow I think Nissan will be next big one to close its Indian operations.

Did not see any Jeep figures even though my friend got it delivered in Hyderabad.

The big SUV/MUVs are back post the GST wait period and how! Toyota shipped out 9000+ Innovas, HEXA is back to the number where it will probably stabilise, Endy moved a 1000+ copies. Interestingly the percentage change for the XUV5OO is not that much as compared to its rivals. Interesting times

Maruti blowing away the competition once more. 52% share of the market.

Baleno and Brezza leading the way for them. Ciaz and Ertiga not showing any signs of slow down due to the increase in price due to GST.

Tiago and Innova doing well for their brands.

The revision in GST and the behavior of the market post that will be interesting to watch.

935 Compass delivered. It is the only entry in the table located before Mahindra

GST has spoken and how ! The result = A whopping 1,53,298 units from Maruti's stable, which I reckon is its highest ever in a month ! However its not comprehendable as to why does it have an impact on lower segments as well especially when it doesn't quite help the cause. Must sit back and watch how does this trend pan out to be !

Looks like the Nexon will be the Right Product for Tata at the Right Time. Just look at the numbers for Brezza, Creta & Ecosport.

Interestingly the Duster clearly seems to have lost some steam with the customers.

Some Observations:
  • Interesting to see Octavia leading the D Segment and even overtaking the Corolla.
  • Baleno at 20,000 copies is quite mind boggling. It is not a cheap car by any stretch of imagination. Kudos to Maruti for scaling up the supply based on demand. Personally, while I feel that the Baleno deserves its success as Maruti upped the game with respect to quality, features and even performance (with the boosterjet) compared to what it offered with its other products, with the Brezza, they went back to typical 'Maruti Standards'- So a little surprising that they are able to move 15K copies of the Brezza.
  • Tata will be really pinning its hopes on the Nexon. Looking at the volumes the others in the segment are doing, they really much be expecting big numbers.
  • The Tigor seems to be dropping. Guess its positioning is a little confusing.
  • Same with the Ignis. Pretty rare for a new product from Maruti to not be in the Top 20.
  • WRV seems to have given Honda a boost they needed. City may have fallen due to prioritization for the WRV.
  • Although Hyundai has the numbers, they may be starting to get a little worried. Maruti has widened the lead and seems to be going from strength to strength. Even on the premium side, the Elantra is not able to match the Corolla and the Octavia. Will be very interesting to see how the new Verna will fare. If it does not compete strongly with the City and Ciaz in terms of numbers, that worry factor will go up a notch.
  • Good start for the Compass. They next 2-3 months will be crucial for Jeep. Can they deliver on the expectations and the hype.
  • 248 units of the Tiguan seems pretty good. I assume VW will be happy if it can sustain at this number.
  • Sudden spurt in the Endeavor. Ironic that it outsells the cheapest Ford product- The Figo.

Thanks Aditya for the July Sales analysis.

Things to note in July sales:

1. Transition from pre to post GST economy
2. Dealers are stocking in for the festive season which again is expected to create a record in sales.
3. The govt. stand on Hybrid has seen manufacturers pushing their inventory to dealers to which dealers are compensated for the difference in many cases.

Now dissecting a section of the manufactures in their July sales:

Maruti Suzuki : Nexa grows phenomenally and sells 32, 860 cars, which is a little short of Hyundai’s numbers. Maruti’s traditional numbers without Nexa stands at 120.438. The product mix, differentiation, overlap in segments itself is a case that only the buyers can explain!
Future: As seen in the Baleno numbers, Maruti is creating the shift from entry level to Premium which explains in the more first time buyers are now seen in segment like SWIFT and Dzire while the trend is declining in ALTO. Expect more cars like Jimny, Swift Sport, SUV’s and CUV’s from the leader.

Customer buying criteria - More Premium shift ( source- Livemint)

Hyundai: A strategy that now clear sways in dependency of Creta and Elite. Will the next gen Verna create the magic numbers (10000 in the festive season?) that Hyundai is looking for? Time will tell but seems an uphill task.

Honda: Seems to have hit the right cord with the masses in WR-V. A car now the highest in sales figures in its stable beating the City is commendable.

Renault: Renault's one kid wonder 'KWID' is being overshadowed an d not helping the brand. Duster shows its dwindling numbers and no cutting edge product is visible yet in their portfolio. Captur doesn't seem to interest ( seeing the responses in the Kaptur thread) and can revive the interest if the quality of interiors are matched with price undercutting the Duster( have either Duster or Captur)

Toppers in their respective segments:

1. Hatchbacks - Entry level segment

One dumb question, may have been answered in other monthly thread. If so pardon the repeat.
Why would we not have the luxury car makers numbers. Quite a few of them make more numbers than say Fiat.

Thanks Aditya for the analysis.

Maruti has shown once again no one can compete with them. 11 of the top 25 cars are from Maruti and top 6 places taken by them in a row. Three models Baleno, Breeza and Celerio have clocked their best numbers ever.

Tigor is a disappointment with that small 3 cylinder diesel heart. As you move up the price segment expectations also moves up but they did a blunder by launching with that small diesel engine, they manage to sell more Zests than the newly launched stylish Tigor. Even if they think of putting 1.5L Nexon diesel mill in Tigor it will be an real uphill task to revive. Once a dud always a dud especially for OEM like Tata.

It is because the luxury car makers (At least the big three-Mercedes, BMW, Audi) do not officially share the sales/dispatch numbers.
