Looking at the sales figures, its more like the dealerships are waiting 3 months for one CRV customer!

CRV needs a diesel heart/ price correction to be in the competition again. Fortuner and Endeavor are much better VFM compared to the petrol CRV!

I hope Ford can replicate it's success in the American market here with the Figo.
The Fiat numbers are ok, they should release the Punto sport and the Linea T-jet as soon as possible, I am sure that those represent minimal investments (maybe not the T-Jet).
The Indian car buyer seems to favour "activity" from a carmaker. This is quite similar to what the motorcycle industry saw around 10 years back (around the time when the Hero Honda Passion was launched).

Fiat India has two fantastic products, they are doing much better than earlier, but they do need that critical push in the face of more competition.

I suppose March will have the lowest sales of the calender year.. I feel Maty sales will reflect the 'real' number for the rest of the year for the auto makers.

I donít know how Honda management is taking this, but surely a typical case study for all future car manufactures.

Sad to see such a brilliant project going down the drain.

Hail Honda Jazz! Even while being a Flop Jazz helped Indians indirectly.

By the way Jazz flopped: These all happened:

GM learnt to price Beat correct.
VW learnt pricing Polo cheaper than Fabia.
Ford learns a crucial lesson on Pricing FIGO at FOC.

March also will be a good month, Due to the price increase due to BS IV, from April, Many people will be trying to save some money. Also the manufactures are prepared for a spurt in sales and hopefully wait time will be less during March. Models like Manza, there should not be much difference in engine (BS III vs BS IV) and why not save some money. April will show the real numbers.

Precisely, think about it - what would have been the pricing levels for the above three if Jazz is selling at 2500+ a month?
