Ashok Leyland 3117, Eicher Motors 2838
Tata Motors is way ahead in truck sales when compared to its nearest competitior. But looks like Eicher is catching up with AL, It looks like Eicher will overtake AL in the near future.
The Tata Motors numbers are only for heavy and medium commercial vehicles, including the heavy range buses, that is the 15 and 16 tonne GVW buses. TML's LCV numbers are generally around the 20000 mark by themselves. Though I dont understand, if these are only for M&HCVs, then how come M&M, Swaraj Mazda and Force Motors feature on this list as they dont have any products in the M&HCV market.

Both M&M and Force Motors make HCVs, the latter producing MAN trucks under license while the former produces the Mahindra-Navistar range in a brand new US$ 1 billion plant set up at Chakan. Any vehicle with GVW exceeding 7.5 tonnes qualifies as a MCV and hence that's why Swaraj Mazda features in the list.

Good question. The figures that are printed in auto magazines aren't very reliable. SIAM web site should be the right source.
