Got a clarification. These are indeed the Karoq figures. We'll make the change in the coming months' charts.

Looks like the Creta is giving a tough fight to the Seltos. I got a call from all three showrooms of Kia that I had visited in December last year, enquiring if I had made the purchase decision.

  • Hyundai superseded Maruti to become India’s largest UV maker. Hyundai currently has only 2 UV models in its portfolio – Venue & Creta. Basking on the success of the New Creta; Hyundai has been able to significantly gain hold in the segment and almost 23.6% of the UVs sold in India were a Hyundai!
  • Maruti moved out of diesel cars and now its entire range is Petrol driven. This has led to the initial loss in Market Share for the leader and now sits second in table for UV sales. Maruti Suzuki lost almost 3% Market Share in Apr-July 2020 timeline. The UV models in Maruti’s stable are – Brezza, Gypsy, Ertiga, XL6 & S-Cross.
  • Mahindra lost the highest Market Share in UVs and now ranks third in the category. In earlier times, Mahindra used to be regarded as the Maruti of UV space and it used to dominate the segment with a Market Share of ~40-50%. However; Mahindra’s market share eroded over time with the influx of Maruti & Hyundai models (Creta & Brezza). Now with almost all OEMs jumping into the segment; Mahindra needs to step up its game!
  • Kia Motors India had a dream run last year with the Seltos and is still going strong. The OEM is now all set to strengthen its hold in the segment with the launch of upcoming Sonet. With the launch of Sonet, the entire Kia Motors portfolio will consist only UVs (Seltos, Carnival & Sonet).
  • Renault is one of the few OEMs to record YoY growth in the segment. Triber was the game changer for the French OEM and has helped gain Renault a foothold in the segment. The current UV models for Renault are – Triber & Duster (with the oust of Lodgy & Captur).
  • MG followed a UV only strategy and has been successful in the same. The Chinese automaker launched Hector and followed it up with ZS EV, Hector Plus. The next launch Gloster is also in the same segment and will help MG gain better share in the UV space.

So the Alto comes back again to it's original glory retaining it's #1 position, a slot reserved it stuck to since ages. The DZire and Swift though interchange positions with it now a days. Maruti occupies ten slots in the Top 20. Hyundai keeps going steady at no. 2 with it's vibrant portfolio.

Tata emerging as the third largest car maker is a great achievement and a real life green shoot (we have so many hypothetical green shoots projected in the media these days) for both Tata and India, coming in the backdrop of the company making a nearly Rs 9863 crores loss during the first quarter (Q 1) of the current fiscal. Tata has three entries in the Top 20, a rare feat. Let us hope they compete well to retain this slot.

Mahindra sits cosy at # 4, after being pushed there by Tata Motors. Sadly, its once second best selling model XUV 500, has reported less than 1000 unit sales. Also very sadly, two very old models viz. Bolero (introduced in 1999) and Scorpio (2003) are keeping the kitchen fires burning for Mahindra. Though the Scorpio has just about managed to stay in the Top 20 at # 20, the Bolero has been pushed to # 16. The new Thar will also be soon launched come the festive season, but that serves only a niche segment. So they can't expect the numbers there. Most of their newer launches are almost non-starters.

Mahindra also has the Verito and E2O EV's in its portfolio, apart from the diesel option for the Verito and the Verito Vibe. The Ssangyong Group is now proving to be their Achille's heel. Even someone who knows the basics of business will assert that the Mahindra stake in Renault India and Ssangyong, South Korea were both very bad decisions. But for their best selling models, due to such decisions we could have witnessed the "Mahindra Fall" from "Mahindra Rise."

Kia at # 5 is knocking at the Mahindra and Tata doors, who need to keep their competitive edge to stay on at their respective # 3 and # 4 positions.

Coming to the laggards, we see the usual incumbents at the bottom of the list. Volkswagen, Skoda, Datsun, Jeep, Nissan are all reporting less than 2000 unit sales. Mitsubishi and Fiat are out as the sales figures could be dismal. Corona or no Corona, these brands have always been laggards in India. Collectively taken, these brands are reputed in many other markets. Their management is not very serious about our market. Volkswagen and Fiat are selling dated models, have nothing new to offer and their portfolio needs a thorough overhaul.

Ironically, Hyundai doesn't really have anything in their stable that is actually worth being called UV (well, considering the Tucson sells in negligible numbers).
In short, I would refer to these figures as numbers of up-sized and higher perched hatchbacks.

In my book, an utility vehicle is one that has EITHER -

-3 row seating (Eg: Ertiga/XL6/Eeco) OR
- AWD or 4WD (Eg: Gypsy, Tucson)

However, I think it is fine to call vehicles like Brezza or Venue as "Compact SUVs" (let's not debate that here). But it is weird to call Hyundai the top "UV maker" - that moniker has been associated with Mahindra for a long time.

This is just clickbait news item. Creta and Venue are nowhere close to Utility Vehicles. Mahindra is still the top UV manufacturer in India.
