Default Hyundai cumulative sales up 28.2% in July, 2008

Hyundai cumulative sales up 28.2% in July, 2008
– Export grows by 59.7%, domestic maintains even keel –


New Delhi, August 1, 2008: Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL), the country’s second largest car manufacturer and the largest passenger car exporter, today announced a cumulative sales growth of 28.2% for the month of July, 2008.

HMIL’s total sales for the month of July ‘08 stood at 36,152 units. While the domestic market accounted for 15, 066 units, exports totaled 21,086 units in July, 2008. The cumulative sales for July, 2007 had been 28,204 units with the domestic sales at 15,003 units and exports 13,201 units. As compared to July 2007 the domestic sales grew by 0.4% in July 2008 while as exports grew 59.7 % and the cumulative growth is 28.2%.

Commenting on the sales, Arvind Saxena, Sr VP, Marketing & Sales, HMIL said, “It has been a challenging month for the entire industry with the combined effects of increase in interest rates, hike in fuel prices and inflationary pressures affecting market sentiments.

But riding on its strong product portfolio, HMIL has still managed to maintain even sales in the domestic market and our exports continue to grow at fast pace. Overall the cumulative figures are positive for HMIL but a host of negative factors have created a situation in the market where the industry is certainly going to face a slow down in demand should the situation continue for long”.

The segment-wise cumulative sales in the month of July, 2008 are as follows: A2 Segment (Santro, i10, Getz Prime) 30,614 units; A3 Segment (Accent, Verna) 5,504 units; A4 Segment (Elantra) 1 units; A5 Segment (Sonata Embera) 28 units; and SUV Segment (Tucson) 5 units.

Well well well...what happened to the regular civic?
A sudden plunge to 496? Strange!

Or was there a typo? 1496 looks more likely...

Perhaps the Jetta has made its impact there??

I dont think it was a typo ! since diabloo had mentioned the total units Honda had sold in July. Quite surprised that only 496 units of Civic were sold !! Could it be that buyers are waiting to see the New Corolla??

I think buyers of Civic put off their decision till they see Hydrid Civic. I think this month will see record Civic sales.

Add the figures, and Civic figure of 496 seems correct. That is a decline from 1100 in 6/2008.City has done a great hob for Honda, but I think it is now losing out to diesel Dzire and even SX4. This is evident from its flat growth in April 2007-Mar 08 and decline in April-July 2008.

Saw an automag (dont remember the name though) at a railway station bookstore and it had the new Honda City on the cover - Civic-ish looks.

If that is the new City that is coming, I am sure it would be a tough time for the competition esp. for the SX4, unless MUL comes out with a diesel version of SX-4.

Yes, and the Jetta launch would had an impact as well. People would want to wait and watch before taking the plunge.
