Lada sells more vehicles than Tata? That's a shame. Get your act together Tata. Gotta beat the Ruskies.

Don't think that's anything to be ashamed of.
Chrysler's ahead of Daimler AG and BMW AG, but, we know who's in a better state of affairs.

That's true. Hyundai and Kia together are Hyundai Kia Automotive Group. They are currently at #6 position in the world (2006-7 data).

wow that's pretty impressive considering that most of the top players are showing their Global Volumes whereas most of the Indian players listed have a smaller market mostly domestic and a small export share....when these companies go global the positions are sure to change...

Add Hyundai and Kia and you get a total volume of 3.84 mio or #5 on the list above Honda.

Subaru was not part of Toyota in 2006.

Interesting. Makes more sense when you see actual numbers being put forward.
With the nano hitting the streets in Sept '08, TATA will see a big change in their sales figures.

Subaru was taken over by neither GM nor Toyota. GM just bought a certain percentage of stake in Subaru. GM then dumped all of its stake, some on Toyota back in 2006 I think.

They are, but Chrysler makes cheaper cars than both the Germans and so they have to sell more. Whereas when Tata and Lada are concerned, they both kind of make cheap cars for the masses unlike Daimler and BMW. Looks like the Indian automotive industry has a lot of catching up to do.

In all probability,that might happen. The Nano is being projected at being the highest selling vehicle in the history of car sales.

Yes may be Nano is bieng projected at being the highest selling vehicle in the history of car sales, Nano has changed the prospectives of many car manufactures, actualy its been a great combination of technology & great effort, no one in the world has expected this kind of car in a small budget & it will definatly creates a history in the automotive world & in country like india it would sell like a hot pan cakes..i am also planning to buy one for me...
