Default July 2021 : 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.

Tata is doing very well, Nexon in particular. It would be good to break out the Nexon EV sales separately. Reportedly it's 650. Combined with MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona, that's almost 1000 EVs shipped this month in India. A drop in the bucket, but the infrastructure is improving. There will be huge demand for a sub-10L EV with decent range (>350km real world) or a sub-6L city-oriented EV (range 100-150km). Will Altroz EV deliver on the former? If so, it's the first choice for my next car.

Overall a good month for the automotive OEs despite the semiconductor shortage and partial lockdowns. With new launches slated in upcoming months and the festive season, if there is respite from the 3rd wave, there might be some good increase in figures for few companies.

My views on the July numbers:

Citroen: Will build the reach and branding for upcoming CC21 launch and keep peeking in the news with possible CBUs. But the C5 is doing what they wanted to do, which is introduction of the brand to prospective customer segment.

Datsun: Game is wither over or paused till they launch new products.

Ford: Pulling it's own leg
- Ecosport numbers are at all time low when the compact SUV segment is growing and growing.
- Endeavour losing out to the Fortuner again despite significant numbers - now they are at a tie.

Honda: Banking on the Amaze facelift and surviving with the City now.

Hyundai: Comfortable at the second position, but the brand is facing heat with all the quality issues.
- Alcazar doing 3000 + Creta doing 13000 beats all competition tag teams (Safari + Harrier, Hector plus + Hector) hands down, but let it stabilize.
- Santro is a gone case.
- i20 has not lived upto it's dominant predecessor, but still good numbers.

Jeep: Stabilized the Compass for now, but needs more products in the line up.

KIA: Numbers are thinning out, due to bad PR nowadays on quality and safety?

Mahindra: Crouching tiger ready to attack with most awaited products, but what's the hidden dragon?
- XUV 3OO doing 6000 is good sign,
- Scorpio and Bolero saving the M&M's 4th position for now.
- Bolero Neo might keep it in 4th till new products come out - referring to 5500 bookings data.

Maruti Suzuki: A lone king in the number game
- WagonR has toppled previous best sellers, I don't get why people prefer this vehicle more.
- Marazzo's failure speaks here for Ertiga's position as Innova crysta's alternate.
- I hate to see S-Presso doing 6,800.

MG: Usual numbers, nothing big.

Nissan: Saved by the Magnite
- This time Nissan got it more right with Magnite than it's sibling Kiger.

Skoda: 2.0 is for sure a new start
- Kushaq's first month numbers are good, has quite decent bookings.

Tata Motors: All-Star
- Great achievement with Nexon entering top 10 with 10,000 numbers, and the EV is the king in it's segment.
- 5 strong products with 3 models above 6000 numbers - A great base.

Toyota: Innova + MS rebadging works for now.

VW: With Tiguan it can do a 2.0 like what Skoda did.

Thanks Aditya for the July sales data:

Here are some more to the analysis of July sales/dispatches.

Auto Industry post second wave of the pandemic, lifting up many restrictions and with the pent-up demand, does well in dispatches/sales for July.
The production was ramped up significantly in July 2021 to serve the pent-up requirement and also prepare for the upcoming festivities. August marks the beginning of the festive season with Onam (biggest festival in Kerala) and Varamahakshmi (celebrated in parts of South India). The festivities will continue with Ganesha Chaturthi in Sep'21 and so on. This has led to adequate stocking levels across the channel leading to a M-O-M growth of ~ 15%.

- The market leader Maruti Suzuki marked a drop in Market share to 45.4%(Y-O-Y) while growth increased by 36.8%, while the industry grew at 48.9%.

- Hyundai too sees a market share drop to 16.3 %, while its sales increased to 25.8%

- Tata continues to perform well and registers a market share of 10.3% while it grows to a massive 101.1% (Y-O-Y) and retains its well secured 3rd position in terms of sales.

- Mahindra retained the fourth position and sales increased over 90.7 percent YoY

- Kia India volumes grew at 76.6 in July 2021 and was pushed to the fifth spot in the ranking table.

- Maruti Suzuki’s products and its Innova sales help Toyota to overtake the likes of Renault, Ford and Honda to place itself in the sixth spot. Innova alone contributed to over 46 percent of Toyota's sales in July 2021.

- Renault sold 9,787 units of its cars in July 2021 compared to 6,422 units in the same period last year. The majority of sales for Renault come from Kwid, Triber, and Kiger.

- Honda could manage sales of just 6,055 units in July 2021. The New City has also been supporting well to the OEM and contributed near to 60 percent of the OEM's sales in July 2021.

-Škoda, VW, & FCA ranked 12th, 13th, and 14th respectively. Škoda India July 2021 sales shoot up 234% YoY backed by the launch of Kushaq.

Škoda crossed the 3k sales figure after 108 months / 9 years!

Highlights of Jul-21 dispatch figures:

- Maruti’s WagonR continues to be India's best-selling Car for a repeat performance as last month recording a 69 % Y-O-Y growth. WagonR CNG had emerged as the best-selling CNG car in India too.

- 8 of the top 10 best sellers were from Maruti Suzuki while Hyundai and Tata were at 5th and 9th with Creta and Nexon completing the top 25 for July-21
- Hatchbacks dominated with 9 models in the Top 25.

- SUV’s matched the hatchbacks in terms of models and MUV’s with 4 in the top 25 best seller list.

- Sedans had only 2 offerings in the Top 25 and were Sub-4m Compact Sedan - Maruti Dzire & Hyundai Xcent.


Largest segment (volumes) – Hatchback, highest Growing Segment -Compact SUV

- The top 9 models of hatchbacks contributed to 1.05 lakh units of sales in July.
- Hatchbacks and SUVs dominated with 9 models each in the Top 25
- Compact SUV segment contributed near to 20% of the passenger cars sold in India for July 2021. Also; the segment recorded one of the highest YoY growth 133 percent in July'21 vs July'20.

Top Manufactures for the Month:

Maruti Suzuki:

- The star performer of Jul-21. Growth is phenomenal (considering a low bas), but loses market share. Expect this to change as a slew of upgrades and new launches are in the offing.
- Controls 10 in the top 25 and has top 8 in the top 10 best sellers for June.

Hyundai:

- Hyundai had 5 models in the Top 25 and 1 in the top 10.
-Creta retains as Hyundai’s best-selling model and India’s No.1 SUV

TATA Motors:

-Tata Motors has 3 in the top 25 and Nexon is the best-seller for Tata and recorded dispatches of over 10k units
-Tata has been able to stabilize at the No.3 position and is now maintaining a significant lead over Mahindra/Kia.

Mahindra:

-The other homegrown Indian MNC Mahindra too had 3 models on the list (Bolero, XUV300 & Scorpio).
Mahindra was also able to hold its fourth position in manufacturer rankings in July.

For the coming months the Auto segment could see muted volumes, this time due to the acute shortage of semi-conductors.

A few observations from my side:

4m SUVs:
1. Brezza still rules the roost, despite being petrol only.
2. XUV300 is finally seeing the numbers it deserves.
3. EcoSport numbers have taken a nose dive. DPF issues & Rumors could be at play.
4. Nexon numbers are on fire!

4.3m SUVs:
1. The Usual Suspect, Creta, is on top of the charts. It leads by a huge huge margin.
2. Kicks/Duster etc. are literally in the dust.
3. Kushaq has had a very slow start.

4.5m+ SUVs & MUVs:
1. Harrier+Safari Combo, have managed to outsell Hector+ Hector Plus combo & the Alcazar as well.
2. Innova still sells great numbers, in spite of Toyota's attempts to shoo away buyers by increasing prices every now and then.
3. Carnival is still not moving. This is despite huge 3.8lakh discounts.
4. The Gloster has lost it's steam. The facelift Fortuner has squarely rounded off whatever little fight it had put up.

Increased dispatch of Mahindra Thar in July is a good news for people waiting for their new Thar.

Maruti as always is being very dominant.

Really happy to see 10K sales of the Tata Nexon and Nexon EV combined.


As per as Hyundai is concerned, going strong with its products but the Santro seems to be failing badly now. Hyundai needs to either give it a non-quirky looking facelift or just leave the segment all together. Personally, I am not liking the new Quirky design language of Hyundai.

I can't express my disappointment with Ford India, rumours of them leaving India will obviously hurt their sales, and with the looks of the bare minimum Facelift of the Ecosport, I have lost all hope in Ford India. I own a Ford Ecosport myself and it really makes me sad to see Ford India's present situation, and resale of Ford cars are also taking a hit already. Even Nissan have managed to increase sales with a fresh new product.

1. Looks like Ford is going through really, really tough times. The ageing lineup, the exit rumours and now the DPF issues all may have led to a further drop in sales. They desperately need a profitable, new, mid-size SUV. I really hope that the global management manages to keep them alive in the mass-market. They also need to clarify their intentions; a lot of people are now unwilling to buy Ford cars for the simple reason that the company is silent on what it plans to do.

2. Honda is no longer it's former self. Amaze sales have been dipping every consecutive month. Hope the facelift manages to fix things. The City is still 60 percent of Honda sales. Would be interesting to know the split between 4th gen and 5th gen.

3. There was a time when Kia used to sell 15k units of the Seltos alone. Now, Sonet and Seltos manage those numbers together. Looks like a lot of people are being put off by the lame safety rating and quality issues.

4. Lukewarm beginning for Kushaq. The pricing and feature distribution goof ups seem to be at play here. Hope sales pick up soon. Nothing else sells for the VAG group. The ageing Polo/Vento/Rapid remain bottom feeders.

5. Renault-Nissan seem to have made a smart move by making the three sister cars - Kiger, Triber and Magnite. All three bring about 12k units. Though the individual numbers of Kiger, Kwid and Triber do not seem very high, especially when you consider the volumes of their respective segments.

6. TATA has done a great job at resurrecting their brand. Just about 5-6 years ago, a lot of people would not even think of buying a Tata car because of the 'taxi image' or the 'truck manufacturer' tag. Nowadays, the brand has desirable looking cars that are safe and have a very youthful image.

7. Business as usual for Maruti, Hyundai, Mahindra and Toyota.

Four paired trends stand out in their respective hotly contested segments:-
* Creta + Alcazar sell almost 3-3.5 times that of Harrier + Safari combo
* Fortuner + Urban Cruiser sell almost 1.5-2 times that of Endeavour + Ecosport
* Ciaz + Dzire sell almost 2.5-3 times that of Verna + Xcent/Aura
* Creta + Venue sell almost 1.25-1.5 times that of Seltos + Sonet

Brezza numbers just blow my mind!
A single engine, 4 speed TC selling hand over fist over its rivals. Why should Maruti do anything extra?

Reminds me of a recent example: A well to do friend wanted to buy a new car under 20lakh segment. The first thing he asked was: How is Brezza?

While the Hyundai star is rising and rising and rising, seems the Kia bubble is slowly bursting. Is this because of a lot of quality and service issues being reported with the Seltos and Sonet across many forums? No amount of good PR can save a brand if the actual after-sales experience is shoddy.
