Top 30 Best Selling Cars of 2017!

As promised in our previous post, we are happy to present the 30 Best Sellers of 2017! It is an interesting point – you may ask why we have covered 30 Top selling cars (why not 5? or why not 50?) . There is not point covering Top 5 (as all 5 are from Maruti Suzuki’s stable!). Also we didn’t want to cover more than 30 models as it would lose significance. We have also categorized Nexa separately to highlight the speed with which Nexa has made its presence in the Top sellers list. We’ve tried to calculate the modelwise YoY growth as well to understand the said model’s performance over last year. So the Best Sellers are –

Interesting Observations:

  • There is no other OEM models in the Top 10 apart from Maruti’s/Hyundai’s!
  • Baleno makes its presence strongly felt and registers itself as the Third Best Selling car of 2017! It sells almost double of Hyundai’s i20!

  • Maruti+Nexa had 12 models in the Top 30 selling cars! Whereas, Hyundai had 5. If other OEMs need to break the dominance of these 2 OEMs, they ought to have a model in the Top 10! It is really needed that Honda, Mahindra, Tata, Toyota, Renault to have atleast 1 model each in the Top 10.
  • Tata has only Tiago in the list. Can Nexon make it to the list next year?
  • Honda & Mahindra have 4 models each in the list.
  • One Product dependent OEMs have a pretty bad time as the entire OEMs performance is dependent on this 1 model!  Ex: Ford (Ecosport), Renault (Kwid), Toyota (Innova), Datsun (Redi-GO).

  1. Although toyota has only one cash cow in Innova and a astronomically priced fortuner but the revenue they generate is much higher .I am pretty sure they must be 2nd or 3rd in terms of revenue sales

  2. Thank you for sharing above analysis. I follow regularly your website. the given data for Top 30 Best sellers is excellent. Can you arrange data for all OEM models from Top 1 to Bottom or at least Top 50
