·         Trend to watch for – Petrol starts contributing to over 50% of diesel sales and is catching up fast. But, with incessant price increase of gasoline make the trend as volatile as mercury!
·         Hyundai’s domestic sales stood at 30,610 units during the month, up 0.52% from 30,450 units in June 2012. Surprisingly the old warhorse Santro saves the day for the Korean major by posting its highest offtake number in past 15 months. i10 & i20 dutifully performs with over 8k and 5.5k figures. Sonata breaks the 20 nos jinx and has a offtake of 14 nos. Verna drops to below 4k numbers for the first time in past 6 months. Has the Ecosport already haunted the touted opponent? Eon sustains the 7.7k figure.

·         M&M reports a double digit de-growth after a longgg time. Total sales of passenger vehicles, including Scorpio, XUV500, Xylo, Bolero and Verito, stood at 17,232 units as against 19,792 units in June, 2012, down 12.93%. No wonder the ‘Car of Steel’ – Bolero led the drop of 18.4% MoM. The MoM de-growth of other products is surprising as well – Quanto (-30.3%), Rexton (-33.6%), Scorpio (-29.8%), XUV (-35.8%) & Xylo (-29.5%). The UV major which was shielded from the downfall in the industry had to succumb at last and has made the OEM shock with awe. The Indian automaker has strong plans of recovery with the launch of new low-priced XUV (reduced the GC and save on the SUV tax!); also the OEM is all set to announce hefty schemes for all its models.
·         Toyota Kirloskar Motor reported 19.45% decline in its domestic car sales at 13,805 units in June 2013. Can anyone explain the consistency of Fortuner volumes in this tough times? – The top premium SUV garners offtake volume of 1561 nos effortlessly. Innova bounces to ~5k nos. India-made Liva & Etios continue to disappoint.

·         GM records a negative offtake! According to reports, a surprise check by the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) this month led to the discovery of issues with the BS III diesel motors in the Sail saloon and hatch and the Tavera. While the 2.5-litre direct injection Tavera engine did not match up to emission norms, the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre common-rail diesel engine in the Sail saloon and hatch is facing ignition problems. The issue has a major blow of over 2500 numbers for the US major with a drop of volumes of ~1.5k in Tavera and ~1k in Sail. Meanwhile, GM has ramped up the production capacity of its BS-IV Tavera. The Tavera sells around 1,500-2,000 units every month, of which 70-80 percent are BS-III.
