It is impacting them too. I am pretty sure I read about Samsung delaying the launch of its flagship device or something because of the non-availability of semiconductors.

As per our Team BHP poll 71% preferred safari. Also the price difference is only around 100K and for that you the extra row (3rd Row) + Disc Brake on all 4 wheels, Electronic Parking etc. Sounds like decent enough value. The thing most in favour of Harrier is the Look of the car.

Any views on the above?
For most, they don't need 7 seater and 5 seater is just as good if not better. Cumulative impact of 100K is roughly 135K with taxes and insurance so it saves some amount. Harrier has that Land Roverish feeling in looks, not that Safari is bad looking but just that Harrier look a tad better and well proportioned. I am sure with next iteration of Harrier, all the premium features of Safari will be copied over to Harrier as well.

Add to that- the Safari's boot is non-existent, so in effect it is a 5/6 seater as you will have to fold down one or both the 3rd row seats if you have to haul luggage. Makes the 1.35 lakh additional price even more of a factor given you get atmost 1 extra seat.

American companies have 7% share in 2021, up from 1% in 2012? This manufacturers' comparison chart seems off. Maybe the charts have swapped, Cool Dube.

This is surprising. Suddenly, no Tata car in the top 10? I thought the Altroz and Nexon twins were doing really well.
