February 2024 Car Sales – Snapshot

Around 3.72 Lakh passenger cars were sold in the Indian market in February 2024. The sales increased by 11% when compared to February last year and declined by over 5% in comparison to January 2024. It anyhow crossed the 3.7 Lakh dispatch figures and turned out to be another record month. It was the third highest-ever monthly sales and all-time best February!


It is anticipated that the actual retails (sales from dealers to end customers) was lower than dispatches (OEMs to dealers) and would have added inventory in the channel. The Automobile OEMs would be under pressure to increase dispatches as they approach the financial year end to meet the yearly targets. March is usually a good month for car sales as customers would be wanting to avail depreciation benefits and also avoid the price hike that generally happens in April.
