We have also compared Retails v/s Registrations to get a better overview of the Cars Sales in Mar'21 -
Do note that the Retail volumes may seem much lower than WS - It is primarily due to the data unavailability from AP, MP, LD & TS RTOs as they are not yet on Vahan 4. Hence we compare the Market Share of WS v/s Retail for better assessment.
Maruti Suzuki's Retail Market Share was higher in Mar'21 (when compared to WS Market Share). This indicates Maruti's Retails were better when compared to the dispatches/WS.
Hyundai too reported a better Retail Market Share vis-a-vis WS Market Share.
Tata's Retail Market Share is visibly lower - The possibility is that the dispatches may have happened in the later part of Mar'21 to stock up for Ugadi/Gudi Padwa.
The difference in Ford Retail MS v/s Wholesales is the highest - Seems the American OEM have pushed stocks to the channel.
