Model-wise Ranking (2015-2018)

We are happy to present the Model-wise Best sellers for 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018. For all years, we have considered Jan-Apr figures for apple to apple comparison (Ex: Jan-Apr 2015 figures are taken here, not the entire year).

Snippets:

  • Maruti Dzire is finally the best-selling car in 2018 (Jan-April period)
  • Maruti has moved up in value chain, now it is selling more ₹ 5 Lakhs+ products (Ignis+Swift+Baleno+Dzire+Ertiga+Ciaz+Scross) than under ₹ 5 Lakhs products (Omni+Alto+Ecco+Wagon R+Celerio)
  • Hyundai is more successful with higher priced volume-generating-products (i20+Creta)
  • Tata is making strong in-road with the new products (Tiago+Nexon), while Mahindra is still banking on old work horse (Bolero+Scorpio)
  • Renault’s wonder kid (Kwid) is in free fall (#7-#12-#16), high time for Renault to arrest the fall

  1. You may want to review your data!
    “For all years, we have considered Jan-Apr figures for apple to apple comparison” yet the 2017 numbers include “Nexon (Tata)” that wasn’t launched until later in the year so sales for Jan-Apr 2017 were 0 and 0% market share. On that basis it throws doubt on any assumptions you can try and draw from it. I’m also not sure Nexon would be at 2% for the whole year as it was only for sale for circa 3 months.

    I note that you have also added ” (Ex: Jan-Apr 2015 figures are taken here, not the entire year).” which isn’t an exception to the first statement unless the first statement is wrong?

    1. Hi. There was some error in the calculations and the corrected data has been updated. Thanks for highlighting.
