Top 10 Selling Cars of November 2018



  • Maruti + Nexa again dominate the Top 5 slots. It has barely allowed any other marque to enter the Top 5 ranking!
  • Swift emerges the No.1 selling car of Nov’18 with sales of 22,191 units! It overtakes Dzire with quite a margin and it’s doesn’t seem to fizzle down any time soon. Practically if you see; even Dzire & Baleno are made on the Swift platform and collectively all three brands combined sold a massive 61,877 units!
  • Baleno recently crossed 5 Lakh units sales and was probably the fastest 5 Lakh units sold in the Indian Automotive space (span of 38 months)!
  • Alto was pushed to No.4 spot! Alto has been losing and gaining the Top Slot alternatively and is wisely played by Maruti Suzuki to highlight its other models!
  • Santro marks its entry to the list of Top 10 selling cars within the second month of its launch! Santro’s new avatar has garnered tremendous response and has a crucial importance – This should be the 4th model from Hyundai which could consistently list in the Top 10 selling cars (against the usual 3) and should also fulfill Hyundai’s vision of garnering collectively 50k units sales/mth.
  • i20 was the best selling Hyundai in Nov’18 and was the only Hyundai model to have crossed 10k sales!

  1. Severe overuse of the ! really, how can it be a real exclamation if you use it more than you use a . – it just dilutes it.

  2. Alto might see one last spike before the Alto 800 phase out in March as per media reports. Any idea on the impact of new safety norms (ABS and etc.) from April 2019 on sales? Maruti Suzuki might be worst hit with Omni, Gypsy and Alto 800 phase out. Tata might have to stop selling base variants with current specifications.

  3. Any impact on sales with new safety norms from April 2019? Many model variants do not qualify to be sold from April. How are dealers and OEMs reacting to this?

    1. The impact will be only on mass market cars like Alto, Wagon R,Kwid,Omni,Go,etc
      All other manufacturers have either phased out or upgraded their products.
      All cars will now have ABS/AIRBAGS as standard fitment
