    1. S-Cross though a good car is not on the aspirational list of buyers. However, rational buyers are liking it and hence the model has now sustained volumes closer to 2500 units/mth.

  1. Hi, Thanks for the monthly stats. Why you can’t sort those above numbers manufacturer wise and post? I feel it will give great change in presenting these numbers.

  2. Looking at Creta and Breeza figures of upward of 7000 units, TATA and Mahindra have to lean hard on their foreign aquisions namely Land Rover and Ssanyong to help out with a proper platform in Mission Mode.

    1. New & Capable Products is the mantra for survival today. And yes, learning/synergy from the international brands will be beneficial.

  3. I FEEL THAT WITH THE AVAILABILITY OF FIAT ENGINE WITH MARUTI, THEY SHOULD PUSH GYPSY WITH DIESEL ENGINE AS THEY CAN PUSH THEIR NUMBERS TO GREAT HEIGHTS

    1. Low maintenance, better network, ease of serviceability, good product portfolio and Brand Image are few factors working for these OEMs 🙂

  4. I believe with introduction of 1% TDS on 10L+ car and 1% TDS on 2L+ cash payment, auto industry could go into a shock this month, with declining sales in cars costing ~8L+ . If the numbers do go down this month it will be fun watching the madness from sidelines.

    What do you guys think?

    1. As of today, OEMs are fighting the forced cess by providing attractive discounts and generate the pull. There is no manufacturer currently in the market which is not offering schemes/discounts on their portfolio (unless it is a new launch). Also the industry is trying to offset the negativity by consistently having new launches on board (last month’s big launch was BRV, this month is redi-GO). Yes, with so much complexity it will be fun to watch the madness 🙂

      1. I dont see any discounts on Creta. I have been tracking creta sales number closely. It went down to 7000 units in May. Do you foresee further fall in creta sales numbers? Do you see any chances of price reduction or feature addition (like their international versions) in the next 2-3 months?

        1. Creta is a comparatively fresh car in the market and hence no push from the OEM in terms of discount. As said dealers are already offering minimal discounts on Creta to push stock at higher pace. However, the overall demand for the model seems healthy as of now and any price revision/feature update is not on the cards.

    1. Yes, but cannot share as the intricacies are high. Do let us know if you got any specific requirement and we shall try to share with you personally.

  5. Hi,

    it will be great if the figures can be shown state wise as well … i mean there can be a filter which can help us select the state of our choice or All India

    regards

  6. Is it possible for you to get the diesel and petrol numbers of each model or atleaset top ten selling cars, Thanks in advance.
