Even in the pandemic, Fortuner is still clocking numbers close to thousand. Probably has to do with the thought process that Fortuner is considered as an investment rather than an depreciating asset.

That and the fact that people who can afford to shop in the 40L segment don’t have their livelihood threatened by the pandemic. Plus, Fortuners aren’t bought as driveway ornaments like many Mercedes or BMWs are. People who buy them tend to use them.

I guess they started shipping BS6 Marazzo in July , they have released a video on exhaust fluid maintenance for Marazzo too.


Meanwhile Hyundai Venue is the topselling sub4m cSUV for H1 2020, let's see how it would change after Kia Sonet !


Quote:
H1 2020 results: not even the tiny/cheapest SUVs are saved from Indian shrinking sales. Volume totaled 112,800 units, down 49%. One star: #HyundaiVenue, which outsold the popular #MarutiVitaraBrezza. What a brilliant result for this small #Hyundai. Next big hit: #KiaSonet

Seems Honda is losing game steadily. Let's hope City changes that.

I see a clear trend in the lower cost hatchback segments 3 to 7 lakhs, where sales are picking up at higher pace than lets say the 8 to 12 lakhs segment.
There was a thought shared here earlier which said that post COVID, a lot of consumers will think about owning a car for personal use and may be some effects of that already being seen ? however one thing is for sure that we are still far away from resuming normal regular life, all offices and markets open so it will be a long time before all of us are back to our regular use of cars again. Work from homes will continue till mid 2021s for sure.
Another feeling i have is people who used to change cars in 3-4 years will now retain their cars for at least 5 years. Talking to a few of my friends and colleagues has given this feeling as well as reading a few comments on this forum.

Car sales and growth will evolve certainly and we have to wait and watch how it things evolve.

Changing cars 3-4 years should be close friends with them..we can get awesome deals on pre-worshipped cars.

Ha Ha absolutely. But let me give you a real example of this. I see you are from Bangalore, you must know of corporate lease programs in IT and other Corporates. These lease tenures are typically 36 to 44 months tenure and at the end of it, you get well maintained, company cared, good to decent cars at absolutely great prices. These are usually lapped up by the Second sales agencies like Cars 24 etc.

I am quite surprised by the sales posted by Maruti. Despite having no diesel cars, no turbo petrols even, it is holding on to its market share. Effectively it has not lost out on its business by shifting to petrol only cars. Or am I missing something as it is quite contrary to what all we have been speculating about Maruti.

Wonder if we have any colour on how retail sales volumes and registrations are doing. This data at least partly represents restocking of inventories by dealers. Maruti has almost 3000 showrooms - so it would touch 9,000 unit sales even by sending 3 display pieces to each showroom.

Would be amazed if people have restarted buying cars at a pace faster than what we saw in July 2019.

As expected, the entry level hatchback and the mid-suv segment saw the highest growth. The growth in entry hatchback segment was predicted by industry experts in the beginning of the pandemic because of the need of a personal transportation option in this pandemic. Also, many people who were planning to buy higher segment cars have downgraded because of uncertainties in the current economic environment.

What is surprising though, is the fact that the Mid-SUV (INR 10Lac+) segment registered the highest YoY growth percentage. This is a clear indication that those who could afford the 10 Lakhs+ cars have been least affected by the economic downturn (as someone else also pointed out).

Now the question is if this is just the pent up demand and those who waited a few more months to buy a car because of COVID-19 or the consumer confidence is actually increasing. Looking at the recent RBI data , it does not look like this level of demand will b sustained over a longer period of time and the auto industry might be up for some bad times ahead.

C2 segment misleads- We need a C2 UV section as separate. C2 Sedans and C2 SUVs will give a clearer picture on where the consument & the industry is heading

Ertiga doing 8500 with Petrol model only? If I am not mistaken, they still don't have BS6 Diesel with them. These are amazing numbers for Maruti. Good product at good price doing the trick here, one of the most value for money car. Overall Maruti back on track, once they bring diesel, they will do much better.

How Nissan dealers are surviving? Per dealer less than 1 car per month?? Very very poor show from them in India since beginning. Better they close the shop here in India and just concentrate on exports from India.

Honda steadily loosing the game. City can't save them now this time, it's a SUV market. Sedan is a thing of yesterday now.

Renault too is on declining curve, need to act fast else they are goner. Duster is dusted now, need something new.

Tata is doing good, need to do more marketing. Altroz looks smashing on roads. All the best.

Rapid numbers doesn't show the rush they claimed to stop attractive pricing. I was expecting around 1500 + numbers for Rapid alone.

Who says India is poor country? See numbers of Creta and Seltos, average 15 lakhs rupees car selling like hot cakes. Creta and Venue saved Hyundai big way.

Ford, VW and Toyota, nothing much to say about. Business as usual.

Mahindra needs something new now, Scorpio and XUV500 are tired. Bolero lost it's numbers drastically in last few months.

Overall good month for Auto Industry, economy slowly coming back to normal. Good monsoon and coming festive season will surely help.
