Default August 2022 : 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.

Thanks Aditya for the quick numbers. As was the case with last several months, true analysis is hard with the supply side constraints. However, a better picture is emerging in the recent months with overall better deliveries. Festival season may give a clearer picture in the coming months.

Citroen - C3 seems to be a non-starter. No way they can survive with these kind of volumes.

Honda - Just a two trick pony with City and Amaze. City hybrid with the pricing is not going anywhere. They have to rush in new models, though the clamour is a very old one. Maybe Maruti- Toyota will bring in a hybrid wave and Honda, with an equally robust technological strength can capitalize with all new launches.

Hyundai - Going steady with stable numbers. Alcazar at half of Carens will not make them happy. Refreshed Venue seems strong and with N line coming in, may get them the traction.

Jeep - Meridian seems settling at half of Compass numbers. Not a pretty picture.

Kia - The product developement and marketing juggernaut is going strong. Carens doing strong, despite the production bottlenecks. With their track record, one gets a feeling that any new segment they enter will be a success.

Mahindra - If the production of Scorpio and XUV 7OO can catch up with the demand, they may even be number 3, at least in value terms. They will not repent the failure of Marazzo now.

Maruti - Very much back on track. If Grand Vitara can pull in at least 10K per month, the perception will change and enable them to go into the premium segments with confidence. Everything depends on the hybrid pricing and market acceptance of that. Brezza with a strong hybrid can easily make it the best seller in the country by a big margin.

MG - Hector refresh may bring back some numbers, but Astor is still very weak. ZS may face challenges if the Hybrid duo of Maruti - Toyota tastes success.

Nissan -If Honda is a two trick pony, this one is a classing single trick one with Magnite. Nothing more.

Renault - Their three models still okay for their foot print. May survive after all.

Skoda - They seems happy from the advertisements of the sales "success" last year. Fix the AC in the Kushaq- Slavia twins and only then any improvement can be imagined.

Tata - Nexon and Punch punching much above weights. Everything else par for the course, which is good news all around. No one missing a Tata in their car buying options these days and that in itself is their biggest achievement.

Toyota - Hope they know what they are doing with the Innova diesel decision. The hybrid one may never pull in that kind of numbers, especially with the commercial segment. Fortuner still ranks as the best cash guzzler in the Indian market. A lot hinges on the success of the Urban Cruiser Hyrider.

Volkswagen - Apparently, they are now happy to play second fiddle to Skoda. Anyway, that is what is happening.

Meridian on its path to be an exclusive product matching Tuscon first and eventually C5 Aircross?

Safari alone is inching close to Hector twins, facelift will give respite for sometime.

Tata shipped more Punches than long time market favorites Swift & Dzire. How market is lapping up SUV shaped cars. 5 star GNCAP also helping though.

XUV700 production seems to have stabilized at around 6K per month.

The Brezza is off to a flyer. Have to see the numbers after the initial hype wears off.

The vehicle has to be renamed in the list.

I am suddenly concerned for Citroen. the numbers do not show a long path ahead. They don't seem to have anymore launches planned. A mass market car not selling 1k units is disastrous.

Very interesting numbers.

If we look at the Rs 15 lacs+ OTR category, Hector sales dropping below 2000 per month, Harrier+ Safari combined sales of about 4400 per month, (may be 5000 including Nexon EV sales), Toyota has about 8700 (Fortuner+ Crysta+ Vellfire), Hyundai has less than 16,000 (even assuming all the Cretas sold are of middle/high variants+ Alcazar+ Kona+ Tucson), and Mahindra has about 16,900 (Scorpio N+ XUV700+Thar+ Alturas G4).

So Mahindra tops in the Rs 15 lacs + OTR category which we can safely assume is going to continue for at least the next 6 months. I am surprised but not very much. Their persistence with developing BS6 diesels is seemingly paying off.

Only 343 Tucson in the initial months, I would have expected this to be 500+ minimum. Comparatively Meridian did 1017 units in the first month. Either Hyundai planned badly compared to Jeep or demand for Tucson is lesser than Meridian. Only time will tell.
Looks like Hyundai’s planning is more or less like Škoda’s with Kodiaq.

A couple of observations from me.

1) It's a surprise to me that Mahindra is able to sell 7000+ classic Scorpio cars, while the very competent Scorpion N is about to arrive. It looks like the sales people have done a good job.
2) I feel Marazzo deserves a facelift with a better engine.*
3) While Skoda is managing decent numbers with Kushaq and Slavia, VW seems to be losing steam even after a late entry into the market.
4) Tata continues to impress us with Nexon and Punch numbers. Also, the Harrier twins deserve a competent petrol engine, and with that TATA can easily secure its 2nd position forever.
5) Afaik, Citroen has 20 showrooms in India. If this is correct, 800 for C3 seems reasonable.
6) Meridian sales appear to be less than expected, numbers doesn't scream success.

No major changes in the rankings, but what caught my attention is the VW Vento, I would love to see the final registered Polos/Ventos.

Citroen C3 at sub-1000 is a little sad but am not surprised considering how bare-bones it looks feature-wise. While the car seems mechanically superior to peers our market is feature driven as proven time and again by the Koreans. Now even the mighty Maruti is following that mantra, look at Brezza/baleno.

Anyways there's still time and Citroen should fix this ASAP if they want to have some future in our market, else they can very well go the Datsun way which would be really sad considering they make good cars.

Really surprised to see the number of scorpio. Don't know why there is a sudden drop in virtus sales numbers. C3 doing a good job. Mahindra now really needs to update xuv300 to bring up those sales numbers. Hyundai needs a good petrol engine too to boost their sales in ncr region competitions offer that.
