Indian Car Sales Figures – October 2017

October was a tough month for the Auto Industry and the growth was almost flat. As the figures projected here are the offtake data (dispatches from OEM to dealers); the actual retails will be significantly higher. The lower dispatches here indicate the weak business expected from upcoming month (November) and dealers would’ve also planned to rationalize their inventory. Many OEMs would have also reduced the production in Oct’17 owing to Diwali (and hence plant shutdown during the holidays). Anyhow the sentiments are low post-GST and it’ll be interesting to see how market responds in November. Many important launches are scheduled too in November – the biggest are the New Gen Ford Ecosport and Renault Captur. Both the models are SUVs and will cater to the SUV craze in the sub-continent. The new launches are extremely crucial to revive business for their parent OEMs and lot of hopes are pinned on it.
Let’s look at the modelwise analysis here:

  1. What happened to Hyundai Verna – from 6054 despatches in September 17 down to 4701 despatches in October , despite the huge number of bookings and enquiries claimed by the company. Are the dealers already carrying heavy stock?

    1. Hexa is a great product. But at the price it is offered, it is a huge bet for any buyer and we would want to be completely sure before investing. Tata as a brand has never got the premium appeal and the reliability issues has haunted almost all its models. Hence, it will take some time for the product to prove itself and only then it’ll get the acceptance it deserves.

  3. Ford is always an underdog. When a competitor arrives, its sales nosedive. That is what happened to ecosport when Nexon arrived.

      1. Do consider BRV if you can stretch a bit. And with discounts offered upto Rs.1 Lakh, the BRV fits the bill in 7-seater category. Also Test Drive one immediately for clarity.

      1. Hi. Ford’s volumes are momentary and they were trying to liquidate the old Ecosport’s stock while the New Ecosport has been launched. Even as on date, the old Ecosport is being sold with huge discounts to clear off the stock. Am sure Nov’17 volumes would be substantially higher for Ford.
