Honda City emerges as the No.1 Selling Executive Sedan for Sep 2019!

We have not seen competition as fierce as that we see in this segment. All 3 contenders for the Top Slot don’t give it away easily – While Ciaz was the segment best seller for July’19; Verna was for Aug’19 and City for Sep’19! Also the gap between the Top 3 is minimal. In Sep’19; City outsold Verna by just 81 units and Verna outsold Ciaz by just 23 units! However; it is unfortunate that the segment volumes is decelerating by every passing month and any new entrant in the segment is not allowed at all (even likes of Toyota failed with their new launch here).

Monthwise Market Share Movement – H1 FY2019-20

We had recently presented the OEM-wise volumes for H1 FY20 v/s FY19 –

Over to the aforementioned data; we have dug deeper to understand the month wise fluctuations in the Market Share in the current FY and the analysis is as shown –

  • Maruti saw its highest Market Share drop in Aug’19 and had come below 48%! 3 out of 6 months in this FY; Maruti’s Market Share has stumbled below 50%!
  • Hyundai slowly and steadily gained Market Share with the help of Venue. The YTD MS has been over 18% and been one of the best of all times.
  • Kia gained over 3% Market Share in the first month of sales! Sustenance will be the key here for the brand.
  • MG impressively crossed 1% MS in Sep’19 and looks stronger with every passing month. The increase in production capacity will surely help it gain even better Market Share in future.

Top 10 Selling Cars of September 2019

  • Dzire tops the chart and sold over 15.6k units in Sep’19. Alto followed close with sales of over 15k units.
  • Ertiga misses out in the Top 10 list and seems like the sales is now distributed with Nexa’s XL6.
  • 7 Maruti models and 3 Hyundai models enlist themselves in the Top 10 cars for Sep’19. It is high time that we see a non-Maruti / non-Hyundai in the list.
