THanks vishnugs for this nice and very informative thread.

It was an a eye 'open'er for me in many sense.

By the way why are all Opel cars opened up!?

Thanks for this informative thread.

One more key factor that separates Indian market from the European market is the implementation of emission norms. Europe has already reached Euro VI norms and has reached 130g/km CO2 emission target, ahead of 2015 timeline.

Engine Downsizing is the result of these emission and fuel economy norms.

Currently we are five years behind Europe when it comes to implementation of emission norms.

Hello All, I did some more analysis and discovered that the sales data I compiled it only for Germany. My bad !

But given the new point that this is only Germany sales data, the volumes are staggering for such a small country compared to ours :-(

Thanks for sharing the UK data. Completely agree, UK data seems to be completely different from Germany! Ford tops the list !

But its nice to see cars like Audi Ax and the likes finding their home in top 10 in these markets unlike in India where it is dominated by smaller cars. Even in India, it is changing a bit with Honda City though.

Interesting stats and thanks for sharing. In Germany, the local players occupy top five positions. Surely quality is the predominant reason.

And in both the markets, only Toyota and Nissan are the only significant Japanese presence. In USA too, that is the largest automobile market, Nissan has a respectable market share close to 10% (though Toyota & Honda are still higher). Makes me wonder why Nissan-Renault combine is so far unable to crack the Indian market.
