  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.

      1. Dear Admin,
        Can we have premium segment sales data…!
        Like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Volvo, JLR, Porsche, Rolls…
