  1. Thank for the May sales Snapshot.
    I had asked this question last month also, why Thar numbers are excluded, can understand Maxximo and Supro exclusions.

  2. Seems like Ford is the brand thats splitting the market , from this result it seems like industry average is 9000 cars per month, any brand below that number is a flop
    The Industry average should have been 80,000 cars per month for a 2nd brand but none even Hyundai has failed to do it showing monopoly of Maruti Suzuki brand in India.
