" Hyundai:
July 2007 are as follows:
A1 Segment — 24,044 units (Santro & Getz)
A2 Segment – 4,094 units; (Accent & Verna)"

sorry to burst the bubble, but those numbers include export as well. Domestic sales is just 15,003 units , down 7.44 % . this is mentioned in the same link provided by you."The total sales stood at 28,203 units. While the domestic market accounted for 15,003 units, exports totaled 13,200 units in July 2007.

also see this "However, Korean competitor Hyundai continued to loose ground with sales dipping by 7.44 per cent at 15,003 units in July, as compared with 16,209 units in the same month last year. Sales of Santro and Getz also fell by 14 per cent in the same period."

Costly loans take sting off passenger car sales

"Tata Motors sales declined by 6.73 per cent, with total sales at 17,011 units as compared with 18,238 in July last year. Indica reported a fall of 7 per cent, while sales of Sumo and Safari also declined by 10 per cent during the period."

"Mahindra, however, posted an impressive growth of 62 per cent, selling 14,457 units as against 8,915 units. A substantial portion of these sales came from its new car Logan which was launched some months ago. Sales of the company�s utility vehicle segment grew by 30 per cent and it sold 2,890 units of the Logan. "

Logan has made it once again . No flop model will sell more than 2500 units for 3 consecutive months IMO.

average monthly sale of esteem is abt 2000 units so it means SX4 sales for July is about 2300. Not a bad show but city still seems to be the leader.

To add to that, Santro itself sells 11,000- 12,000 units a month.

The rest of the cars- Getz Prime, Accent, Verna, Elantra, Tucson, Sonata Emberra, terracan together manages only the rest 3000 odd.

Yes it is true that Hyundai sells 11 - 12k cars a month, but you see the model is ageing as well, a new hyundai santro is very well in the pipeline and should be launched hopefully sometime next year, its got very sharp facelifts, I saw some scoop pics in TG a fw months back.Elantra New should also be launched soon. Come on Hyundai !! Buckle up & act fast !!

What is the sales figure for Palio Stile 1.1 and 1.6? Any idea?? Looking at the poll "good car under < 4.5 L" in indian car scene, Palio Stile is ranked 3rd by TBHPians.. I was wondering what is the sales for Stile in July 07.

I don't know but still Fiat cars selling numbers have not picked. Expect the same next few months untill they bring new models. Right now TATA/FIAT might be doing lot of R and D and testing on bringing right models in right time.

We can see good count with Fiat/Tata only in mid 2008 when they launch
more than 4 new models together. And 2008 wil be the year in Indian automobile industry where actual war start between car manufacturer untill it saturates by 2012.

Regards,

Ravi.

Two weeks back when i went to TATA-fiat showroom, they were saying they sold 2-3 cars in a month.
I have seen only two of them on the roads.

If you go by that poll, Zen Estilo shouldn't sell at all(has the least votes).

Default Two-wheeler sales decline, but cars continue on fast track

Two-wheeler sales decline, but cars continue on fast track - livemint

Sales of scooters and motor cycles dropped for the fourth consecutive month in June as consumers deferred purchases because of high interest rates and theabsence of attractive product offerings. However, sales of cars and utility vehicles in the month grew more than sales in June 2006.

Hero Honda Motors Ltd - 8% decline in sales in June 2007 from the corresponding month last year and sold 255,200 vehicles in the domestic market.

Existing bike owners desirous of repurchase represent over half of all new sales.
Bajaj Auto Ltd second largest Motorcycle maker - 22% Decline in domestic sales - Units Sold- 138 949
TVS Motor Ltd, third largest with a 15% decline in Domestic Sales - sold 97,984 Units.

“This slow down was mainly due to increased (interest) cost and stringent norms being followed by retail financiers,” said TVS Motor in a statement released on Monday.

More than 60% of scooter and motorcycle sales are financed.
There has been 2-2.5% increase in the interest rateson loans to buy two-wheelers and cars.

Companies are also attributing the drop in demand for two-wheelers to declining consumer interest in the 100cc bike segment.
“Existing motorcycle owners desirous of repurchase represent over half of all new sales. There is an increasing evidence of their diminishing interest in the fundamentally unchanged 100cc motorcycles currently available, contributing significantly...towards the industry-wide slow down in sales,” said Rajiv Bajaj, managing director, Bajaj Auto in a statement.

In the passenger car segment, Maruti Udyog Ltd, India’s largest car maker, achieved 25.5% growth in June from the same month a year ago with domestic sales of 56,000 vehicles.
The company saw the highest growth rate of 46.4% in the mid-size car segment where it sold 3,923 vehicles; Maruti launched a Sedan, SX4 that competes in this segment.

Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd recorded a 50% increase in its domestic sales in June and sold 16,814 vehicles. The company also sold 2,389 units of Logan, the car it launched in a joint venture with French car-maker Renault SA.
Tata Motors Ltd, maker of the Indica car, recorded a 5.7% drop in sales in June on account of low demand for its mid-size sedan Indigo.
The demand for cars that are part of the Indigo family dropped by 13.4% in June, while demand for Indica cars grew by 4.3%.

Hyundai Motor India Ltd, recorded a 4% decline in domestic sales in June and sold 16,335 vehicles.

The rise in interest rate would not have much impact on passenger cars. The market is expecting 10-11% annual growth for the passenger car industry in the current fiscal year.

Among the other car makers, the local arm of General Motors Corp reported a 42% year-on-year growth in June, selling 4,779 vehicles and Honda Siel Cars India Ltd recorded a year-on-year growth of 27%, selling 4,503 vehicles.

Isn't that like saying Indigo sells more than NHC?

I dont think Logan is a direct competitor to SX4/NHC. Would be good if someone can post Indigo sales figures and we can have it against Logan figures.

As for SX4-NHC battle, SX4 seems to be doing better numbers even with all the waiting periods and stuff. Hope NHC has a few more tricks up its sleeve (ABS and other features)!

Can we now say that the Logan is finally beginning to hit the Indigo? Mahindra Renault did say that Indigo was the car they were targetting with the Logan.

What about Indigo sales in July? I don't think we can compare Logan to SX4 and NHC. Aren't they in different segments?

Logan although its entry level segment Sedan its packed with all goodies that Luxury segment Segment Sedans like SX4/NHC has. So we can compare Logan with them. Logan is one car which can compete with Sedans costing 5 to 8 lac as Ex showroom price. Good show my Renault-M&M.

Ravi.
