I think china numbers are a bit off.Last year they sold 13 million plus cars against USA's 10.5million effectively becoming the largest car market.
Well India has been no slouch it has grown 30% year-on-year for every month of this growth and no signs of stopping!

Man, I'm disappointed with this company called FIAT! When are they going to pull up their socks?
Horrible figures, might as well stop producing cars!

Among all the cars of Maruti, Ritz is a steady 5000/6000 p.m. As a matter of fact since the hatchback launches begun one and a half years ago, Ritz has racked up most sales. Slow steady and un-assuming. The only worthy competitor to Ritz is Figo.

I'm still waiting for Audi's sales figures.
Good show by BMW with the F10 5-Series!

VW Vento numbers will improve by quite some amount in the coming months due to the current capacity constraints.
Called the local dealer in Chandigarh to find out about the Diesel Highline model and was informed that the wait period is a minimum of 5 months.

@GTO

I wonder what sales did the RHINO and RIO manage to garner?

1) Micra launch has failed to capture the market imagination. Not impressive nos. at all for a newly launched car.

2) Bolero nos. going strong

3) Spark sale lower than Beat. Surprising!!

4) Accent still selling over a 1000 per month. Good to see that.

Ritz has touched the 1 lakh mark in sales, and it has created a record by being the fastest to reach there among all B-seg cars.

@arnabchak Nissan has a small dealership network anyway which is why the Micra numbers look so uninspiring.Infact for the a handful of dealers the Micra is not doing that bad actually.

Question How's Skoda still selling ?

It's amazing how Skoda still sells considerably huge numbers of Laura and Superb considering their tarnished image. Skoda must be doing something right or is it just lack of public awareness ??

Mitsubishi might as well just pack up and leave but they could just keep the Outlander here for us. I think that is the only car that makes some sense in their stable.

Perhaps, too low to report.

I'd completely disagree with your statement. For a handful of dealers and a relatively unknown brand, the 1,000 monthly sales are in line with expectations.
