Kps,

Well, thats nice compilation.

I am sad that the honda is rated so low, when i see so many ANHCs around.

Its all the more pathetic to see the the sales of palio and UV A.

Nice compilation.

Honda city for me is a very good number since its the only sedan other than Dzire in the top 10.

That is a very interesting and detailed compilation. Are these numbers sales figures from the dealers or dispatches by manufacturers? Any chance you can get the numbers for other cities like Hyderabad too

What Insight!!!

Thanks KPS. For no particular reason I have affinity towards Tata & Mercedes. There is something to tell about their numbers.

Tata - If bangalore sales is a statistically significant number to test hypothesis on car behaviour of the rising middle class population of India, then Tata take this : your cars have no takers! Even an excellent product like Manza sells dismally compared to its rival and much inferior product (IMO) Dzire! I think the reason is that not many wish to be associated to brand Tata - atleast with cars.

Mercedes - If ever a number could tell you that corporate India - powered by the services sector is set on a higher growth trajectory it is this : 6 S Class sold in a single month in Bangalore and more than the much cheaper C Class. Keep the cash ringing, will you CEOs.

Good to see a detailed breakup in Bangalore, could you share with us the source of this information .

OT : For a non Metro like Bangalore 6k plus cars every month must be a nightmare to accomodate given the infrastructure currently it has.
If every car take 5 meters parking space then every month bengaluru needs 3.1 km of new road just to park these vehicles.

I felt the Telco performance to be rather better. They with their Vista and Manza are ahead of GM with their spark and beat. Also Ford is at that place because of the Figo-Effect. If we take India as a whole, still their Indica and Indigo are selling in good numbers. So IMO they've takers and the number is increasing

These are details of actual vehicle registrations and hence reflect the retail sales figues. Difficult to get other city numbers. For example in Hyderabad, you play tax at the Dealership and get a temp number. In Bangalore all vehicles need to be registered by the RTO only. Bangalore RTO has quite advance systems.

Nice to see that our Bengaluru is backing the Tata Nano well. 104 Nano sales in Bengaluru alone out of a total of 509 across the country as reported by GTO. That's 20%.

So we have the top end S class Mercs as well as the lowest Nano both doing well in Bengaluru.

Thanks KPS! This is great information, and very interesting to analyze especially in comparison to the nationwide sales numbers posted by GTO in another thread.

For example, Fiat sold 1023 cars in the month nationwide and 121 in Bangalore alone. Thus, Bangalore aloe contributes to 10% of Fiat's sales. We always thought (as mentioned several times on this forum) that Fiats are more popular in Bangalore as compared to many other cities, and this data confirms that.

I wonder if anyone knows Fiat numbers for Mumbai. I guess Mumbai plus Bangalore will be a big chunk of Fiat's nationwide numbers.

EDIT: Just to put the above in perspective, let us look at Maruti's numbers. Bangalore sales of Maruti (2945) are barely 3% of nationwide sales (102503).
