Default November 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.

The top 5 dominated by Maruti Suzuki, trailed by Hyundai-Kia spread evenly across the remaining spectrum with Tata motors having a solid presence in the segment. Good to see Tata doing great numbers !

The Glanza and Urban cruiser are also bringing healthy numbers for Toyota.

It pains me to see such numbers month on month for the Jeep Compass. Such a great car, let down by mismanagement and unrealistic pricing.

Although MS remains dominating, very happy to see numbers by Tata, for Altroz and Nexon, and that's with Altroz not having a good engine under the hood.

Those are very respectable numbers by Tata. The Koreans seem to be taking a toll on Jeep as well as Ford.

Given FCA’s legacy I am surprised that it is actually selling more than 500 units per month 3 years into the launch with virtually nothing changed except for diesel automatic transmission.

As expected, not much action to see in sales charts. Tata Motors' 120% YoY growth and Mahindra Thar's comeback are the only things that really caught my fancy.

Good to see Nexon & Altroz numbers. Once Tata brings the turbo petrol & AT in the Altroz, it can easily come closer to the i20. Great to see Indian public (although still a small %) giving preference to safety over bling

Mahindra got way more bookings for the Thar than anticipated. Hope they ramp up their assembly line soon and start delivering/shipping more cars per month.

With the Magnite, Nissan are likely to jump from dead last to the mid-field and compete with MG & Ford!

Renault have generously allowed their Alliance partner Nissan to launch the Magnite first, and have held back their own Kiger, as the two appear to be not much more than badge-engineered versions of each other.

If the Magnite turns out to be very successful (highly likely scenario), then the Kiger will also be welcomed with open arms by the car buying public, as people are more comfortable with Renault's sales & service network that is bigger and more widespread than that of Nissan.

Renault should also keep the top end Kiger 1.0 turbo-petrol CVT variant's price tag below the 1 million rupee mark (ex-showroom). Plus, they should also launch the turbo-petrol and turbo-petrol CVT variants of the highly capable and very versatile Triber.

If they do the above, then Renault may well be able to challenge Mahindra for the 5th place!

Not in a long time has there been such fierce competition for the 3rd, 4th & 5th spots.

After the bumper festive season, the automotive sector sees a patchy November, in terms of sales/dispatches. Though the sector recovery is fast enough, is yet to come out of the woods bringing back negativity to dotting double-digit.

A mixed bag of fortunes for the manufacturers. Hyundai, Kia, Tata Motors, Mahindra and Mahindra, Toyota and Honda see growth, while Maruti sees a drop of 2% in the domestic market. Ford and Nissan were the prominent losers.

After a 19.6% YoY growth in Aug, 31.14% growth in Sep’20 and 17.5% growth in Oct’20– the industry has registered a 8.8% YoY growth in Nov’20. But to be noted that the growth has now tapered down below 10% even during the Diwali month. This indicates that the OEMs reduced pushing inventory to its dealer partners as the year end approaches. The real test shall be the next 3 months to conclude if the industry will have a sustained growth.

All manufacturers barring MG and Nissan, sees a negative M-O-M growth.
The industry is optimistic about 2021 with lots of promising launches and could bring about disruptions in the segment.

Highlights of Nov-20 dispatch figures:

- Tata Motors grew a phenomenal 108% YoY and the growth was one of the highest in the Industry. Tata Motors also recorded a Market Share growth in Nov’’20 (it jumped from 4.0% in Nov’19 to 7.5% in Nov’20).
- Kia Motors India volumes shot up and is in a neck-neck race for the 3rd position. Kia also was able to project a 50 % YoY growth which helped its market share increase @ 7.3%. Kia also was able to project one the highest YoY growth in the Indian market which helped its market share increase by 2%.
- The Market Leader Maruti Suzuki registered a -2% YoY de-growth and lost the highest Market Share.
- Even though Hyundai dispatches were effected due to Cyclone Nivar; it was able to grow a moderate 9.4% YoY and held to its Market Share.
- MG recorded its all-time highest volumes! Its YoY growth was a stellar 27.3% and overtook Ford in Nov

Fastest Growing segment – Compact SUV

- Compact SUV grew a 41% YoY backed by strong volumes of Sonet & Venue.
- Compact SUV segment which ranked fourth in Aug’20; shot up to be the country’s second largest segment in Sep’20 ,Oct’20 and Nov’20 as well.
- Premium Hatchback segment overtook the Mid SUVs and was the third largest segment

Top Manufactures for the Month:

Maruti Suzuki

- Retains top 5 slots in the 10 best sellers for August and holds 7 positions in the top 10.
- Maruti’s Swift superseded Alto to become the bestselling car for both OEM and the Nation.. It is the fourth month in succession that Swift overtook Alto.Baleno too outsold Alto and jumped to the second spot. It recorded a mammoth 35% YoY growth. Also note that rebadged Toyota Glanza sold 2,428 units – the combined Baleno+Glanza sales shall be 20,300 units!
- Wagon-R was the third best-selling car in Maruti’s portfolio. There is a spike seen in the sales of entry level cars and Alto/Wagon-R sales are a testimony for it.
- Alto slipped to the fourth position and was 853 units and has a 2%t YoY growth
- Dzire was one of the Maruti models to post a de-growth as well – drop is obviously due discontinuation of diesel variant.
- Ciaz seems to be outdated in front of the New City & Verna, drops 40 % in growth.
- In the completive CUV segment, Brezza slips in numbers. Kia Sonet and the Urban Cruiser effect. With Urban Cruiser combined the numbers are an impressive 10670.

Hyundai:

- Hyundai dispatched 48,800 units in November 2020 and registered a YoY growth of 9% & MoM volumes fell by -14%. This is the highest volumes Hyundai has recorded in any November till date.
- Creta was the best seller for Hyundai and contributed to almost 25% of Hyundai’s sales in November 2020! The model also emerged as India’s best-selling SUV for the month.
- Worrisome for Hyundai should be the numbers for the newly launched i20. The Newly launched i20 saw a dip of -13% in YoY volumes. Considered overpriced and quality levels not matching the price, Tata Altroz would be looking to dethrone the hatch from its current position.
- Santro is another product with hyped launch and dismal monthly sales. Not able to encash on the growth levels witnessed in this segment.
- Compact SUV Venue ranked third for the OEM and around 9,265 units were dispatched in November 2020 and ranks 2 in this segment.

The drop in sales of Toyota as expected due to strike
Post festive season a general Luke month, hopefully due to year end discount we expect to see better December figure
With COVID vaccine in visibility we should expect better sentiment and discretionary spends which should reflect in vehicle sales as well
Nice to see Tata able to show stealer numbers
Is safety slowly taking priority for customers (seeing Marutiís overall market share) or there is some other reason
Surprise to see Ford figures, such good products but they are unable to market the USP properly and able to pull the crowd.


Some suggestions for future month analysis :
Are we biased on C2, I think with sedans and Suvish car for better visibility should that be broken to get better insight on actual industry trend
Similarly if possible should we breakout fuel type as well, especially on Share of each type of fuel at each segment and include some insights on EVs

Despite all the news about the new Rapid's pricing, it still manages to sell less than 1000 units every month. This shows that customers are hesitant to pick up something from a brand that's not known for good service quality.

FCA sells less than 1000 units of the Compass...this is sad because the car came with a lot of promise and is now FCA's only brand in India. Looks like they have stopped caring about this market.

Heartening to see the Tata numbers.
