Thanks for sharing, Volkman10! Those are fascinating charts - I could spend the entire weekend admiring them.

Moving your post to an independent thread.

I have one query. Why is the hatchback sales between 10-15L price range marked as 0%? Doesn't the Polo GT twins sell well to make a slight mark in that segment?

The prices mentioned are ex-showroom prices. The GT twins are priced under 10 lakhs ex-showroom.

Is it possible to share the actual numbers for the "Distribution Fuel wise" table? Would be interesting I guess, to know how bulky these %ages are!

Thanks,

Not sure if you meant Diesel vs petrol trend. If so here is the link.

Diesel vs Petrol trend - much appreciated. Thanks!

My question though was for the table in the very first image with a bottom heading "Distribution Fuel wise (Ex-Showroom)"

Thanks,

@Coolman
If you see only in numbers. Petrol shows a increase, but this is only due to the fact that there are no diesels in the below 5 lakh, and very few in the 5 to 7.5 lakh catagory. Above this the trend is clearly towards diesel.

Sincerely,
Rahul

Indians seem to go for products which offer them the most value.
It seems like this definition of value in a product is constantly evolving.

I presume - SUVish vehicles at 5-10L price bracket with higher ground clearance + relatively smaller engines (read value through fuel efficiency) + large interior space + low maintenance is a hit.

No wonder Vitara Breeza is a runaway success, since it fits everything mentioned above [well, almost fits in].

Other cars like EcoSport, Nexon, TUV100, etc are trying to get a strong foothold there.

Thanks for sharing the graphs Volkman10!. Love the way when data is sliced and diced differently, it changes the way you look at regular data.

Hyundai comes out really well in the volume distribution across price range, having presence across 11 columns (including Petrol and Diesel) Maruti in comparison, is present in only 6 columns. Hyundai continues to command the premium which Maruti always dreams off.

Full Year 2017 SIAM's data indicate the zooming preference to the M/S(UV)style of vehicles.

Expect entry level cars to now have the S/CUV styling as led by KWID.

Excellent compilation, volkman10. I appreciate.

I would like to bring a few observations I made in your post.
1. Maruti has 6 petrol engines, you mentioned it as 5. (800C on Alto, 1L on K10, ubiquitous 1.2L, 1.4L on Ciaz, 1.3L on Gypsy & 1L Boosterjet)
2. You missed the 2.4L Diesel engine of Toyota.

I guess the rest of it must be coming from Tata and Mahindra.

It is hard to believe that a engine developed 15 years ago is pretty much what 40% of cars have today. Heck; it could meet Euro 4 norms too.

Very insightful charts.

The fantastic data is from Auto Punditz. There seem to be some misses in the chart though.
