Interesting to note that i20 P sells in huge number but diesel seems to be a slow mover.

Also interesting is that the Figo petrol is moving in good numbers.

@xingamazon there definitely seems to be a trend here. For the swift and Figo since the production is at max capacity probably maruti and Ford makes it in the 45-55 ratio and that's why the pattern is consistent on all the months. not sure for the ritz though.

And how is it relevant?
Only Tata and Mahindra make custom products for India. Not Maruti.

Not sure about that.

Considering the percentage of localization and cost of manufacturing, probably Honda wont be able to reduce the price. They will introduce more products in future, the brand name will eventually bring more sales, but i don't expect a price correction from Honda.
Sorry dude, but you have incorrect info here. Honda does sell to rental companies and I have rented both, Civic and Accord from respected rental company from IAD airport. They even do the fleet sell as well.

How often is it that you see a Honda as rental car in USA? As I mentioned previously Honda's sales for fleet are negligible.

That is an exception. Also that's not a new car but only a boot job. Not surprising that they did it in India.

Man, this is awesome. And the biggest revelation is i20 (P) selling way more than the (D). Atleast this should make Honda to rethink about Jazz pricing.

Not many Honda's from rental until now but lately the number is growing, atleast here in DC - IAD airport, one can see quite a few Honda and Toyota from rentals. And again I replied on the post that stated "Honda does not sell to Rentals"

You said Maruti does not make custom products for India. The exception is what makes your statement wrong.

If you start thinking that way, Tata makes just one car.
Indica
Vista - Indica with some spit & shine
Indigo - Vista with a boot
Manza - Indica with a boot & some spit & shine

I can answer this, but donot want to get into a Tata Vs Maruti fight. I would not use the words spit and shine though.

Very surprised to see the split between i20 petrol and diesel versions. I was under the impression that i20 sales picked up after the introduction of the diesel version.

Someone else said on the forum that the best thing that happened to i20 (P) is the Jazz - looks like that's true!!
