Huge demand and fan base in rural and semi urban markets.

Have you seen the Bolero reviews on YouTube? A lot of people comment as it's their "Dream Car". No wonder why it sells.

The TUV 300 is a better Bolero. But I guess the "name" Bolero has a heft to it. Hence, I feel even the Scorpio and Bolero have a greater fan following than even the XUV 500, 300 and TUV 300. The acronym names just don't make it unless you are in a luxury segment where the alphabet defines your status.

Shouldnt Innova be No.2? Or is there a typo in the sales numbers?

Quite interesting to see the difference in proportion of diesel sales (60% vs 38%) of Creta vs Seltos for what is basically the same engine.

Is it because Kia has more dealerships in metros were petrol is popular while diesel is more popular in Tier 2/3 towns where Hyundai is far more established?

Surprising to see there is only SUVs and no hatchbacks. I was expecting to see slightly higher numbers for Altroz and i20 diesel as other suzuki diesel hatchbacks are discontinued.

If I assume NCR even accounts for 15% of the overall Innova sales, this number should be a bit higher (around 500-700 mark at least). Also the dealerships didn't have any left-over stock from Jan as the car is under waiting and getting sold the moment it reaches the dealership.

We all laughed at Suzuki as to how stupid it was not to have diesel in their portfolio. This report convinces me why Maruti is numero uno in India. If they can sell 10K copies of Ertiga and Brezza without diesel engine, it's a clear indication that market preference has changed or Suzuki has convinced the market, at least for cars costing less than 15lacs. In premium/UV category, diesel is still the preference, Maruti has zero presence here.

MG sold ~3660 Hector & Hector+ in Feb 21. Yet it does not feature in top 10 diesel car sales list. Its petrol engine wasn't rated very highly in the reviews. I guess lack of diesel auto combination is hurting MG while its doing wonders for others, like Harrier twins, Korean twins etc.

My unscientific guess is except for Scorpio and Bolero, ~80% of sales figues in above list would be with Auto transmission.

There might be few more from earlier dispatch elsewhere but petrol Innova is slow seller. Even in Bangalore, where Toyota have their manufacturing unit, most dealers don't have petrol Innova in inventory. We cannot judge the numbers based on what we see on road or showroom, but i think factory dispatches is accurate. Just FYI, one of the showrooms in Bangalore hadn't sold Petrol Innova for months. I wouldn't be surprised is majority(or all) of those 132 Innova's are sold in NCR.

Same is the case in Mumbai none of the dealer has sold a petrol Innova or Fortuner for sometime now, the one I had contacted told me one or two are sold in year if at all. Dealerships other than in Delhi NCR get a petrol Innova or fortuner only if someone has specifically ordered one.

The entire stock of petrol Innovas and Fortuners go to NCR Delhi, 132 petrol Innovas for the NCR region is believable. Also if we check the stock availability on Toyota’s website then it will always show stock for both Innova and Fortuner petrol in Delhi with almost all dealers.

Fuel Mix Sales OEM wise for February 2021 :

-Maruti Suzuki which is now a predominantly Petrol-only car manufacturer was the No.1 Petrol Car OEM and Mahindra emerged as the No.1 Diesel Car OEM for February 2021.

-Almost 22.6% of Hyundai's sold in Feb'21 had a diesel engine. Hyundai was also India's second-largest Diesel Car OEM. The diesel sales came primarily from the SUVs (Creta & Venue).

-Diesel models contributed to almost 42% of Kia India's volumes.

-Mahindra is still Diesel dependant and over 87% of its volumes came in from the Diesel models!

-Toyota's dependence on Diesel models has lowered over time and ~57% of its sales came from Diesel variants.( Maruti Suzuki effect)

-Even having an SUV-only portfolio; MG has significant sales coming from the Petrol variants!

Thanks to Autopunditz for sharing the data. Even though looking at a single month sales we cannot conclude anything, it still gives a lot of insights.

*Average Diesel sales of OEMs without counting Maruti stays at 37% which sounds inspiring and it shows their investment on BS6 Diesel was worth. Maruti data is manipulative since it can single handedly shift the scales due to the humongous volume, for reference Maruti sold close to 330K diesel cars in 2019 averaging 28-30K cars per month.

*Surprising petrol volume by Tata Nexon and MG Hector. MG sold only 700 Diesel Hector twins in Feb, whereas HARRIER twins did a crazy 3700 units. Hoping that Mahindra will come up with a Petrol AT option on all variants of new XUV, there is a lot of demand.

Fuel Split: OEM's share in Feb-21 sales


Mahindra was the No.1 OEM for Diesel Fuel type in Feb'20 - Here is how the split in fuel type across its portfolio.

- Only two models present in the Petrol fuel type in their portfolio, so a high diesel dependency is expected.

- With 13,445 volumes, Mahindra stands at 87% of Diesel fuel type sales.

- The petrol fuel type sales stood at a mere 13%.

Maruti Suzuk: An all Petrol affair

- Also, it is currently not convinced by the readiness of the Indian market for EV car volume. MSIL continues to put its money on CNG and other Hybrid fuel types.

- Hyundai has had a high contribution to petrol at 77% penetration
