BS Reporters / Mumbai August 2, 2010, 1:05 IST

Increased dispatches of the Nano and improved demand for its new launches pushed overall sales of Tata Motors, India’s largest automobile company (by revenue), in July.

The company reported sales growth of 62 per cent to 27,864 units, highest ever for it in a month, as against 17,191 units reported in the same month a year earlier.

The company stated that during July it had delivered 9,000 units of the Nano, 8,606 of the Indica and 7,007 of the Indigo, while combined sales of the Sumo and Safari were 3,251 units.

Sales of the Italian car brand, Fiat Auto, also sold through Tata, declined to 2,301 units in the same month, a fall of 14.4 per cent as compared to 2,690 units reported in the corresponding month last year.

Pune-based Bajaj Auto, India’s second biggest two-wheeler maker, and Chennai-based TVS Motors today reported a jump of 66 per cent and 33 per cent in two-wheeler sales, respectively, during July. Bajaj, led by its popular Discover and Pulsar models, sold 279,781 units of two-wheelers (including exports) during the month as against 168,163 units sold in the same month last year. Similarly TVS Motors, the country’s third largest bike manufacturer, reported domestic sales of 143,039 units as compared to 107,883 units posted in the same month last year.

Motorcycle sales for TVS Motors grew 42 per cent in July, registering sales of 61,698 units in comparison with 42,998 units. Scooters grew 46 per cent, with sales of 40,357 units in the same month as against 27,673, stated the company is a release.

Bajaj’s statement said lack of adequate production had limited sales of both two-wheelers and three-wheelers. It sales of the latter grew 60 per cent to 38,634 units this July, as compared to 24,104 units last year.

While exports of Bajaj Auto surged 56 per cent to 106,794 units as against 68,585 units in July last year, TVS Motors’ exports grew 54 per cent to 20,067 units, as compared to 13,061 units.

In my opinion, the numbers aren't great for Tata either. The Nano sold more units, but the profit margins have to be wafer thin. The Indica range is hit by lower than average numbers (I'd say the average would be 9500), the only silver lining being the Manza/Indigo range. However, I think Tata is on the right path and slowly trying to change the perception of being a "taxi" sales company, hence the lower number for the Indica shouldn't be that troubling but rather expected. It'll pay off in the long run.

About Fiat, 2300 is lower than the figures a year back (the Punto was launched around this time last year), but they have been clocking similar number this year (even going down to 1800 in a month), so I think they won't be that unhappy. With the impending launch of the Linea T-Jet and the just launched Punto VGT, I think they'll be targetting 2700-3000 mark. Slowly, with more cars being seen on the road, the faith in the Fiat brand might come back. If and when that happens, the sales will auto-adjust.

Seems the bottle neck for Nano was only the production. With the increase with the production, they should be able to get even more figures.

Most abused new thread title, month after month.
Fiat, Tata, now isn't that two (of "two or three"?).

Jokes apart, a thread is meant to be something that starts out and then is embellished by the contributions of other members. This is the case for the sales figure thread too. Later on Karpusv will most probably get the time to fill us in with the detailed numbers. I can't understand what is there to get so worked up about?

Just my $.02.

22400 Crores Profit for the Year, for the current quarter. Operating Profit Margins of close to 7%. Highest in Industry if you keep MnM tractor division apart(Despite bearing the Interest costs for the JLR deal) and you call these "numbers not great??" .
Just for your info Maruti operates with an margin of 4.7% to 5.5%(Royalty and excluding Royalty to the bosses in Japan).So these numbers are stellar from TATA Motors. Have a look at their stock it is at a historic all time high.

Indica is disappointing but clocking around 9k which is pretty decent when you look at the industry numbers,but poor when you look at the amount of VFM that the Vista carries.Figo seems to have sealed it in this segment.Look out for the Figo numbers.

Tata Nano production constraint seem to be over.Look at the numbers now. People called the 7000 odd last month as an aberration. 9000 is the new number for the Nano.Wow

Indigo MANZA and the CS seems to be stabilizing around 7k.I hope the Maruti Dzire starts slowing down, would love to see Maruti respond with a better car and take the VFM of this segment to another level.

Here are the details of the Maruti - Suzuki sales for the month July 2010.

Interesting to note that SX4 , Dezire Growth is slowing down. Manza effect perhaps.

@nandi_ca
Fair enough. You got the numbers right and seem to know more about them. Touche.

When I said what I did, I was looking at the passenger vehicle sales only. In that category, I chose to look at the increase in Nano numbers being evened out by the decrease in Indica/Vista numbers. From now on, I'd take special care to give a wide berth to people with "ca" in the user id.

The reason i compared the figures was because there was a talk that the Nano was being sold by TATA without any profit or by even taking a hit at the bottom line. That is not the case as you can see when it comes to Margins TATA is king!

I jus checked the ARs.

It's actually 2,240crores for TATA Motors.(Passenger cars + CVs + JLR).
It seems they have a 64% market share in CVs which
is the major source of revenue.

For MSIL it is 2,497 crores.
