Default June 2020 : Indian Car Sales Figures & Analysis












NOTES:

1: Thanks to the team at Auto Punditz for sharing these sales numbers with us!

2: Only cars that sell 500+ units (and thus, the relevant ones) have been included in the gainers & losers chart.

3. These manufacturer-reported sales numbers are factory dispatches to dealerships. They are NOT retail sales figures to end customers.

Maruti spent more time justifying why Indians won't need a diesel instead of giving that choice to the customer and the results are out there to be seen.

Altroz, Tiago and Nexon holding fort for Tata.

New Creta outsells Seltos albeit by a slim margin.

S-Presso lowest selling Maruti model barring the Gypsy and Ciaz. Even the long in tooth Celerio outsells it. S-Presso is a very handy product for City but is clearly overpriced for what it offers.

Honda has had a near whitewash. They should pray the new City and updated WRV work for them.

The old war horses- Bolero and Scorpio flying the flag for Mahindra.

After a whitewash in April and a trickle in May, it's good to see some numbers in June. For sure, the automotive industry would have welcomed customers with folded hands and masked faces. Though the numbers aren't representative of what's coming up, there are some interesting points that have emerged last month.

> Folks at Hyundai and Kia would be praying for this status quo to be maintained even as the sales grow gradually. The battle between the twins is going to be very interesting. Despite being fresh off the block, the Creta can't shake off the Seltos from it's back.

> Tata seems to be doing pretty well with both the Tiago, Altroz and Nexon bringing in numbers in line with what the respective segment leaders did. I, for one, would be glad if they are able to maintain the same trajectory when numbers pick up. That's easier said than done.

> Mahindra has a real big problem on their hands. With the Bolero and the Scorpio still bringing in the numbers and the newer models failing to make an impact, there would be a lot of brainstorming going on inside.

> Honda's fall is alarming. To be honest, I don't see the new City and the facelifted WR-V doing anything apart from bringing in a few hundred units of incremental numbers. They have two options - work aggressively on the HR-V and a compact SUV or sit by the sidelines and watch the market get away from them. I hope they choose the former.

> Despite the eye-popping price, the Rapid hasn't set the sales charts on fire. For the sake of all of us who yearn for better, realistic pricing on new cars, I hope Rapid sells more than this in the coming months.

> Jeep is going down the drain and is taking FCA along with it. The numbers are now comparable to what Fiat did and I don't see this changing unless the Compass gets a price correction and Jeep gets in a couple of more affordable models our way.

Glad to see auto sales start to pick up again, even if some of it is restocking of dealer inventories. Some of the data seems incomplete - eg canít see any sales of the Karoq even though we have had some BHPians get delivery of their cars. Was surprised by the strong sales of the Kia Carnival and the MG ZS EV - both have done much better than I expected. Wonder what will happen to MG sales in coming months - I would have considered the ZS EV on itís merits but am unlikely to do so post Chinaís killing Indian troops. Of course, I am unlikely to be in the market for a car before 2021 - these things can change by then.

In such difficult times, market share % is more infomative rather than absolute sales number.
Market share of Maruti and Honda has fallen alarmingly in last three months. And these companies loss is gained by Tata, Kia, MG mostly.

Most awaited thread. As expected the market is not the same as what we had in Jan & Feb, but, still better than April and May.

Creta and Seltos are having a good run and the competition between them is worth a watch until the new CSUV's from Nissan and Renault give them some competition.

Honda, a near zero. So the new trump card (Should we say last?) "CITY" is out and we need to see how its going to fair amidst the onslaught of the CSUV's. The entire C- Segment Sedans had a mere 3159 sales and what is the share the new City wants to grab? This segment has already shrunk from 28% share in 2015 to a mere 10% now. The only way ahead is to bring a new CSUV which can compete with Creta, Seltos with matching price, loaded with all bells and whistles.

There is no jazz in Jazz. It's dead? No sales in the last five months. Honda again killed it.

Happy to see TATA's sales. Altroz is not getting the attention it deserves.
Mahindra should concentrate more on XUV brothers. They are competent products loosing to its rivals easily.

Who on earth is still buying that Verito/Vibe. Did, he just came out from 7 years of coma?

Overall sales have picked up to ~ 50% pre covid levels despite the restrictions and BS-VI transition, which is a good news.

This month's data is unique. There are indicators where post Covid-19 sales are going to be. As expected entry level segments have bounced back. For example Kwid sales are 75% of pre-covid levels.

Similarly, higher segments are almost unaffected, healthy comback there as well.

The middle segments are where things are a bit dilly-dally. For example B2 segment is trailing by a big margin. This would most likely be due to liquidity crunch, buyers in that segment may be preferring to scale down to B1.

I guess, segments (B1 and below) and (D1 and above) would likely drive sales in coming months.

PS: The charts look like flower shoots with April/May as base. If rest of the year witnesses a good recovery, that would make a beautiful picture.

Skoda Octavia is being factory dispatched to the dealers, even in May and June - Interesting to learn that. These must be the vRS245s?

Edit: Also, what can possibly explain the surge in “Premium” segment. From an average of 30 to 200 - I know the base is very very small, but is this because of the “splurge during a pandemic” kinda statistic we are looking at?

Overall its a 50% degrowth YoY. How do we read this number? . I think this is a very good number, considering the environment. But could this be a pent up demand?. I dont think think we can attribute it to the first time buyers ( To avoid public transport) because its across all models.
Very good performance by creta and seltos. But they were in high demand. So not sure if its dealer inventory restocking or the customers of this segment are not impacted.
