New car wholesales in India register their first year-on-year decline since October 2017 in July at -2.6% to 288.735 units. There’s a couple of reason behind this surprising fall that does not question the health of the Indian market. First, we’re looking at an extremely high comparison set as July 2017 figures were boosted by the GST implementation, resulting in an all-time high volume at the time, a record that would be beaten two months later in September. Second, this year the month of July was right in the middle of religiously inauspicious periods in the south of the country such as Aashada month in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, Karkidakam in Kerala and Aadi in Tamil Nadu. Important decisions aren’t likely to be made during this time, including purchasing a new car. However the year-to-date tally remains in record territory at +6.3% or almost 200.000 additional wholesales to 2.014.622 units, the first time in Indian history that the 2 million unit-mark is eclipsed after just 7 months.

The new Xenon continues to help Tata up: +14% in July.

Brand leader Maruti is down (-1%) but still manages to improve its market share year-on-year to 52.8%, keeping Hyundai (+1%) well below at 15.1%. Boosted by the new Amaze (see further down), Honda (+17%) posts the largest year-on-year gain of any Top 10 manufacturer to leap onto the podium at #3 with 19.970 units and 6.9% share. That’s Honda’s first podium since September 2015, highest volume since October 2015 (20.166) and highest share since March 2016 (6.9% also). Mahindra (-6%) is up one spot on June despite declining faster than the market while Tata (+14%) posts a solid gain but drops two ranks on last month to #5. Dramatically, the next 6 brands all fall heavily, such as Volkswagen (-48%), Datsun (-35%), Renault (-31%), Toyota (-23%), Skoda (-11%) and Ford (-7%). Only Jeep (+28%) is in positive in the remainder of the Top 12.

The Maruti Dzire surges 74% year-on-year to dominate the Indian models sales charts again.

Model-wise, the Maruti Dzire (+74%) as well as its hatch variant the Swift (+46%) continue to fly much higher than in 2017, in fact Dzire+Swift July sales alone, adding up to 45.640 (+61%), outpace all brands in the Indian market bar Maruti and including Hyundai (43.481)… The Maruti Alto is now almost certain to lose the title of #1 car in India by the time 2018 comes to an end, the Dzire now sporting a 19.000-unit advantage after 7 months. However, a new element has popped up very recently as far as the Dzire is concerned: discounts, of up to INR22.100 (US$320): doesn’t look like much but it is a lot for the price of the car. The reason? The smashing success of its direct competitor, the new generation Honda Amaze (+249%) which has become this month the first Honda to sell more than 10,000 monthly units in India, after becoming the first Honda to crack the Indian Top 10 in May, a ranking it has held since. The Hyundai Verna (+544%) and Maruti S-Cross (+83%) also impress this month.

India First Half 2018: Maruti above 50%, Dzire to end 13-year Alto reign

The Maruti Dzire has snapped control of the Indian market away from the Alto.

* See the Top 25 All-brands and Top 110 models by clicking on the title *

The Indian market storms into the First Half of 2018 all guns blazing with a stunning 13.2% year-on-year uplift to a record 1.725.887 units, even edging past the previous half year record of 1.701.531 established in H2 2017. Note these figures don’t include Light Commercials. Before screams of “India is the new China” get too loud, let’s point out that the Indian First Half 2018 volume is equivalent to an average month of sales in China. Local behemoth Maruti-Suzuki brilliantly outpace the market with a 18% gain leading to its first ever H1 share above the symbolic 50% mark at 51.1%, breaking its all-time records for volume (163.434) and share (55%) in April. In contrast Hyundai (+9%) and Mahindra (+7%) are worryingly weak in the remainder of the podium.

The Tata Nexon is the best-selling new launch in India, helping the brand up 47%.

Below, Tata posts by far the largest gain in the Top 10 with a 47% surge enabling the Indian marque to overtake Honda (-5%) for 4th place overall. Toyota (+23%) and Ford (+15%) also advance faster than the market, whereas Renault (-25%), Volkswagen (-17%) and Datsun (-2%) retract. Jeep launches and directly lands at #11 with over 11.100 units of the Compass having found a new home, an excellent score given its price-tag. Further down, most premium brands are estimated to grow at a vastly quicker rate than the market based on Q1 official results: Porsche (+112%), BMW (+73%), Mercedes (+58%), Volvo (+42%), Jaguar Land Rover (+37%) impress but Audi (-16%) disappoints. In the naughty corner: Fiat (-85%) and Hindustan-Mitsubishi (-79%).

The Vitara Brezza (+22%) makes it 6 Marutis in the Top 6 for the first time in history.

Over in the models aisle, we are witnessing a once-in-a-decade event: a best-seller changeover, something that has not happened in India since 2005. The Maruti Alto (+1%), annual Indian leader for the past 13 consecutive years, cannot seriously pretend at the throne anymore after the Maruti Dzire snapped the top spot no less than 9 times in the past 11 months. Propelled up 74% by a new generation, the Dzire looks set for first ever annual win in 2018. The Swift, whose new generation launched much later than the DZire, is up 20% but down one spot on a year ago while the Maruti Baleno soars 42% to #4, overtaking the Maruti Wagon R (+4%). The Vitara Brezza (+22%) makes it 6 Marutis in the Top 6 for the first time in history.

The Hyundai Verna is lifted up 6-fold by the new generation.

The Hyundai Elite i20 (+4%) passes the Grand i10 (-10%) as the leader of “the rest” (read non-Maruti models), however the Creta (+18%) helped by a mid-life facelift, was the best-selling Hyundai for the first time in May and broke its volume record two months in a row at the tail end of the Semester. The Maruti Celerio (#10) means the Indian Top 10 remains a Maruti/Hyundai affair, something that could change by the time 2018 comes to an end given the smashing success of the new generation Honda Amaze (+49%) back inside the monthly Top 10 in June and for the first time in almost 3 years. Further down, notice the Hyundai Verna (+492%), Maruti S-Cross (+102%), Tata Tiago (+53%), Tata Tigor (+47%), Honda WR-V (+36%), Ford Ecosport (+29%) and Toyota Innova Crysta (+25%) all posting solid gains. The Tata Nexon (#22) is by far the most popular recent launch in India over the period, distancing the Jeep Compass (#36), Ford Freestyle (#42) and Toyota Yaris (#44).

A year ago in June 2017 the Indian new car market slumped due to delayed wholesale orders in anticipation of GST changes taking place in July. As a result, this month new car sales surge a gargantuan 37.9% year-on-year to 271.920 units, lifting the year-to-date total up 13.2% to a record 1.725.887 wholesales. Market leader Maruti once again manages to outpace the overall growth – as spectacular as it is – with a 44% uplift but drops below 50% share for the first time since March at 49.3% as it shuts factory lines down for a week for annual maintenance work. Below Hyundai weak at +21%, Tata soars 63% to land on the podium at #3 for only the third time in the past 6 years after November 2016 and November 2017. Honda (+37%) matches the market at #4, wth both Tata and Honda knocking Mahindra (+6%) down to #5 for the month. Toyota (+563%) compensates for a particularly weak score a year ago, and while Ford (+37%) is in line with the market, Volkswagen (-24%), Datsun (-15%) and Renault (-3%) all post paltry results in the remainder of the Top 10.

The Honda Amaze is back inside the Indian Top 10 for the first time in almost 3 years.

The top of the models ranking is extremely dynamic, with 3 of the 4 best-sellers virtually doubling their sales year-on-year. The Maruti DZire takes off at a mammoth +103% to sign a 9th win in the past 11 months, the Maruti Swift is up 84% to step up to 2nd place and the Maruti Baleno is up 97% to #4. The Maruti Alto, the Indian leader for the past 13 consecutive years, is down to third place with sales up just 22% on June 2017. Worryingly, it’s the 2nd time in the past 3 months that the Alto falls to #3 whereas it had only happened twice in the past 15 years: in June 2004 and May 2014… Below the Maruti Wagon R and Hyundai Elite i20 both up a slim 6%, the Hyundai Creta (+73%) breaks its volume record for the 2nd month running at 11.111 sales, the Honda Amaze (+663%) breaks into the Top 10 for the first time since October 2015 and the Tata Tiago beats its volume record at 8.327 vs. 8.316 in September 2017.

The Tata Tiago posts a new volume record in June.

Indian new car wholesales leap up a fantastic 19.9% to an estimated 300.583 units, only the second time in Indian history the market is above 300.000 monthly sales after the 307.511 reached in September 2017. The year-to-date tally is now up 9.5% to a new record 1.453.967 ex-factory deliveries. Never to be undone, Maruti brilliantly manages to outpace the market with a stunning 24% year-on-year gain leading to a 53.7% share and 161.497 units, each time coming 2nd best below last month’s records of 55% and 163.434. Maruti leaves its immediate followers reeling: both Hyundai (+7%) and Mahindra (+0.5%) fall way below the market growth. In constrast, Tata (+61%), Honda (+41%) and Ford (+35%) post the largest gains in the Top 10 whereas Nissan (-41%) and Renault (-22%) both struggle.

Its facelift brings the Creta a new volume record and its first time as Hyundai’s best-seller in India.

Model-wise, the Maruti Dzire shoots up 159% on the previous generation a year ago, signing a dazzling 8th win in the past 10 months. It now distances the Indian leader for the past 13 consecutive years, the Maruti Alto, by 10.000 units so far in 2018 which could end up being a historical year. The Maruti Baleno continues to post outstanding results, up 33% to 19.398 units, its 2nd best-ever volume below the 20.412 it notched just last month. Below the Maruti Swift (+16%) and Wagon R (+3%), the Maruti Vitara Brezza (+26%) breaks its volume record at 15.629 (previous best: 15.243 in July 2017). This means Maruti monopolises the Top 6 for the fourth time in history after JulyAugust and November 2017.

The new Amaze posts the highest ever monthly volume for any Honda in India.

Thanks to its facelift going on sale on May 21, the Hyundai Creta soars 31% year-on-year to break its all-time volume record at 11.004 (previous best 10.556 in July 2017), climbing to an all-time high 7th place, also hit in February 2016. The Creta is Hyundai’s best-seller in India for the very first time, eclipsing the Grand i10 and Elite i20. The new generation Honda Amaze reappears in the ranking directly at #11 with 9.789 sales, a new record for the nameplate but also the highest ever monthly volume for any Honda in India. It’s the Amaze’s highest ranking since October 2015. The Hyundai Verna (+575%), Maruti S-Cross (+105%), Maruti Celerio (+65%), Tata Tiago (+44%) and Ford Ecosport (+40%) also impress. Among recent launches, the Ford Freestyle is up 149% on its inaugural outing last month while the Toyota Yaris is up 79%, both nameplates breaking into the Top 30.

India April 2018: Maruti breaks volume and share records at 55%

The Dzire (+195%) helps Maruti hit an all-time record market share in India at 55%.

* See the Top 25 All-brands and Top 85 models by clicking on the title *

New car wholesales in India shoot up 7.3% or more than 20.000 units year-on-year in April to 297.401, a new record for the month leading to a YTD volume up 7.1% to 1.153.384 after four months, also a new record. Thanks to a 13% year-on-year surge, Maruti Suzuki manages to break both its share and volume all-time records this month, at 55% (previous best 52.6% in November 2017) and 163.434 (previous best 153.298 in July 2017). This is an absolutely outstanding performance for the Indian subsidiary of the Japanese carmaker, tightening even further an already iron grip on the Indian market. Hyundai (+4%) follows at a distance but underperforms while Mahindra (+13%) and most strikingly Tata (+34%) are in great shape. Further down, only Porsche (+245%), BMW (+80%) and Volvo (+25%) post significant gains, with Honda (-37%), Renault (-22%) and Volkswagen (-15%) among the hardest hit.

The Ford Freestyle lands at #41…

Model-wise, the Maruti Dzire is up 3-fold on the previous gen in April 2017 to reclaims the pole position it holds year-to-date, signing a 7th win in the past 9 months and sealing its newfound domination of the Indian market. Its hatchback variant the Maruti Swift (-4%) is up one spot on last month to #2, both nameplates knocking the March leader, the Maruti Alto (-6%) down to #3. At #4, the Maruti Baleno (+16%) breaks its all-time volume record at 20.412 (previous best 19.153 in July 2017) and adds up to over 70.000 units so far in 2018, up 35% on the same period in 2017. The Maruti Wagon R (+1%) rounds up a Top Five 100% Maruti ahead of the Hyundai Elite i20 (-2%) and Grand i10 (+1%).

…while the Toyota Yaris lands at #37.

Further down, notice the Hyundai Verna (+498% thanks to the new gen), Tata Tiago (+71%), Mahindra XUV500 (+50%), Maruti S-Cross (+47%), Mahindra Bolero (+34%) and Maruti Eeco (+18%) all frankly beating the market. We welcome two new nameplates in India this month: the Toyota Yaris sedan lands at #37 and the Ford Freestyle – in fact a SUV-looking Figo – at #41.

The Indian new car market gains 6.1% in March to an estimated 297.861 wholesales, a new record for the month lifting the Q1 2018 volume up 7% to 855.983 units, also a new record. Brand leader Maruti manages to more than double the market growth at +15% to 49.4% share, exactly the same level as YTD (+11%). Hyundai follows the market at +7% to 16.1% also equal to its YTD share, while Mahindra trails it slightly at +4% to 8.1%. Tata continues to stun with a fifth consecutive 30%+ gain at +31% to 6.8% share in 4th place, passing the 20.000 monthly unit-milestone for the second time this year after January. Reversely Renault (-37%), Honda (-28%) and Volkswagen (-22%) are all in great difficulty.

The Maruti Alto manages to snap the #1 model spot for only the 2nd time in the past 8 months thanks to wholesales up 24% year-on-year. It however remains #2 YTD below the Maruti DZire, up 40% to #2 this month. The Maruti Swift (+24%) benefits from the arrival of the new generation to rank #3 both in March and YTD, ahead of the Maruti Baleno (-1%) and Wagon R (+17%). The Maruti Vitara Brezza (+31%) also shines in a Top 10 obliterated by Maruti and Hyundai: among all other manufacturers present in the country (23), only the Mahindra Bolero manages to rank among India’s ten favourite nameplates. The Hyundai Verna (+377%), Maruti S-Cross (+88%), Tata Tiago (+76%) and Mahindra TUV300 (+38%) also make themselves noticed while the Tata Nexon tops all recent launches at #23 above the Jeep Compass at #33.

India confirms its sturdy start of 2018 with February wholesales up 8% to 273.753 units leading to a year-to-date volume also up 8% to a record 558.122 deliveries after two months. Once again Maruti teases the symbolic 50% market share at 49.9% thanks to a 13% uplift, distancing Hyundai at 16.3% (+5%) and Mahindra at 7.5% (+8%). Tata surges 45% to 6.5% share in 4th place, posting its fourth consecutive 30%+ year-on-year gain. On the other hand Renault (-35%), Honda (-19%), Volkswagen (-19%) and Nissan (-17%) are all in dire need of fresh metal. Luxury brands all do extremely well except Audi but their sales are estimates.

The new Maruti Swift has finally landed in India, landing its first podium since last May.

Model-wise, the Maruti DZire soars 26% year-on-year to snap a third consecutive pole position and 6th monthly win in the past 7 months, logically ranking #1 year-to-date with deliveries up 25% to 43.481, now almost 4.600 units above the traditional #1 the Maruti Alto. As logical as it is, this is the first time the DZire ever ranks #1 in a YTD chart in India and it could have a serious shot at historically ending 13 consecutive years of Maruti Alto reign this year. The Swift, whose new generation is finally available in India, surges 40% to #3 and the Baleno more than doubles its sales year-on-year (+106%) to land at #4. The Wagon R (+3%) closes a Top Five 100% Maruti ahead of the Hyundai Elite i20 (+28%) and Maruti Vitara Brezza (+16%). The Mahindra Bolero (+24%), Tata Tiago (+25%) and Ford Ecosport (+19%) also shine in the Top 20.

After breaking a new record in 2017 at 3.23 million units, the Indian new car market hasn’t lost its mojo and advances a further 7.4% in January to 284.369 wholesale deliveries. Maruti has an iron-clad grip on Indian sales charts with a gargantuan 48.9% share this month, albeit trailing the market at +4%. Below, Hyundai is up 8% to 16% and Mahindra up 14% to 7.7% but the hero of the month is Tata, surging 55% year-on-year to 7.1% of its home market, the highest share for the brand in over 5 years – since the 7.4% of December 2012. This is to be compared with a low of 3.3% in March 2016. Tata is boosted by the Tiago (+53%) posting its 2nd best volume at 8.287 and breaking into the Top 10 for the first time, the Nexon breaking its volume record at 4.917 (#22) and the Tigor (3.172) at its best since last April. Honda (-5%) rounds up the Top 5 while Toyota (+19%) and Ford (+18%) impress but Volkswagen (-16%) and most critically Renault (-21%) implode.

The Tata Tiago breaks into the Indian Top 10 models for the very first time. 

Model-wise, the Maruti DZire (+25%) is the best-seller for the 5th time in the past 6 months and will have a good shot at ending 13 consecutive years of Maruti Alto reign in 2018: it starts the year with a gap almost 3.500 units-wide with the Alto (-17%). Meanwhile the Maruti Baleno lodges a 7th month in a row on the podium and hits its 2nd largest ever volume at 17.770. As it was already the case over the FY2017, Maruti monopolises the Top 5 with the Swift (-1%) and Wagon R (-7%) in tow. The Maruti Vitara Brezza (+32%) isn’t far from making it 6 out of 6, ending the month just 324 units below the Hyundai Grand i10 (-7%). The Ford Ecosport (+82%), Toyota Innova Crysta (+30%), Mahindra Bolero (+24%) and Hyundai Creta (+17%) all post spectacular gains in the Top 15. The Renault Kwid falls 19% and drops 9 spots on December to #18 and the WR-V remains Honda’s best-seller in India.

For the first time in history, the Indian new car market crosses the 3 million wholesale unit-milestone thanks to dealer deliveries up 9.1% to 3.226.162 units. Note this figure doesn’t include Light Commercial Vehicles. Market leader Maruti-Suzuki continues its incredible progression: after 43.1% market share in 2013, 45.2% in 2014, 46.5% in 2015 and 47.2% in 2016, it now reigns at an implacable 49.7% thanks to sales shooting up 15% to over 1.6 million vs. less than 1.4 million last year. Maruti Suzuki broke its monthly share record in November, lifting it to 52.6%, and was above 50% for six out of the 12 months of the year. Like in 2016 Hyundai trails the market slightly with a 6% gain to a record 531.170 units but a declining 16.5% share. The Top 10 brands remain unchanged on 2016 but evolve in vastly different ways. If Tata (+19%) and Honda (+15%) frankly outpace the market, Datsun (+6%), Toyota (+4%), Ford (+1%) and Volkswagen (+1%) trail it while remaining in positive while Mahindra (-1%) and more shockingly Renault (-15%) clearly under-perform. The French manufacturer needs to confirm the success of the Kwid with a second blockbuster and the fail launch of the Captur isn’t helping. Outside the Top 10, Jaguar Land Rover (+49%), Skoda (+30%), Volvo (+28%), BMW (+25%), Mini (+17%) and Mercedes (+16%) all post spectacular gains while Jeep lands at a stunning 13th place.

The Maruti Baleno is up 64% to land in third place overall in 2017.

Model-wise, the Maruti Alto manages a 13th consecutive year in pole position (no interruption since 2005)  with sales back up 5% to just under 258.000 units. The Maruti DZire outpaces the market with a 11% gain to over 225.000 units, becoming in August the second nameplate after the Alto to manage to sell upwards of 30.000 units in a single month in India, lifting this record to 34.405 in September. The DZire topped the Indian sales charts no less than four times in 2017 (a record): in August, September, October and December vs. seven times for the Alto. The Maruti Baleno confirms its spectacular launch by surging 64% this year to step onto the annual podium with 175.000 units, lifting its monthly record to 19.153 in July. In 4th place, the Maruti Swift is down 1% but broke its monthly record in April (23.802) when it ranked #1. Finally the Maruti Wagon R (-4%) makes it five Marutis in the Indian Top 5 for the first time in history, also breaking its monthly record in April (16.348).

The WR-V (#18 in June) helps Honda up 15% in India in 2017. Picture magzter.com 

The Hyundai Grand i10 (+14%) crosses the 150.000 annual unit-milestone and remains the brand’s best-seller in India but is down one spot, followed by the Maruti Vitara Brezza up a staggering 65% to become the country’s best-selling SUV for the first time in a full year, beating its volume record no less than four times this year to bring it to 15.243 in July. The Hyundai Elite i20 is up 9% but down two ranks to #8, the Hyundai Creta up 14% but stuck at #9, beating its monthly volume record twice to lift it to 10.556 in July. With the Maruti Celerio (+11%) at #10 and snapping a new record in July (11.087), the 2017 Top 10 is 100% composed of Maruti and Hyundai nameplates like in 2015. The difference: the Renault Kwid (-13%) is now out of the Top 10, down two spots to #11.

The Nexon is a successful launch for Tata, up 19% at home this year.

Notice also the Mahindra Bolero up 21%, the Tata Tiago up 70% and now the brand’s best-seller at #16, the Datsun Redi-GO up 38% to break into the annual Top 30, the Hyundai Verna up 57% thanks to the new generation and the Toyota Fortuner up 156% to #34. The Maruti Ignis, launched in January, is logically the most successful new launch for the year volume-wise, landing directly at #22 but peaking at #19 in March. Two other newcomers have also managed to break into the monthly Top 20 at some stage during the year however: the Honda WR-V ranks #25 in 2017 but peaked at #18 in June and the Tata Nexon is at #42 but peaked at #20 in November and December.

After coming to a halt in October (-1%), the Indian new car market returns to double-digit year-on-year growth for the fourth time in the past five months with November sales up 13% to 274.271 units, leading to a year-to-date volume up 9% to a record 2.973.092. Maruti Suzuki is not done yet: thanks to factory sales up 14% it posts a new all-time record market share in India at a mammoth 52.6% (previous best 52.2% in November 2016). Before last July, the best Maruti Suzuki had ever done at home was to monopolise the Top 5. In November and for the third time in the past five months, the carmaker trusts the six best-selling spots… Hyundai trails the market at +10% but remains very solid at 16% share vs. 16.4% year-to-date. Tata is the performer of the month, leaping onto the brands podium thanks to sales up a stunning 35% to 6.3% share, its highest share since March 2015 and only the second time in the past five years it manages a #3 ranking along with November 2016. This is due to the success of the Tiago, up 23% to lodge its 2nd highest ever volume at 7.416 and the Nexon up 34% on October to a new record 4.163 units at #20 overall.

The Nexon helps Tata to its second podium ranking in five years. 

Mahindra is knocked down to #4 despite a very satisfying 18% gain helped by the Scorpio, followed by Toyota up 13% thanks to the Innova Crysta (+35%) while Honda soars 47% thanks to the WR-V (#24) but drops two ranks on October to #6. The situation is starting to really be worrying for Renault, down another 19% as the Kwid continues to decelerate sharply (-27%) and the all-new Captur (#43) both disappoints and cannibalises the Duster (-33%)… Ford is up 13% thanks to the facelifted Ecosport (+34%), Jeep continues to progress with sales up 15% on October to a record 2.828 Compass, and Skoda shoots up 75% thanks to the Kodiaq and Octavia (+81%).

The Ford Ecosport is boosted up 34% by its facelift.

The Maruti Alto (+4%) reclaims the models pole position after three consecutive months of Maruti DZire reign, the latter up another 31% to remain above 20.000 monthly units. The Maruti Baleno advances 60% year-on-year to post its 2nd best-ever volume at 17.769 (pb 19.153 last July), snapping the third spot YTD off the Maruti Swift, while the Maruti Vitara Brezza is up a stunning 49% to also score its 2nd largest sales month at 14.458 (pb 15.243 last July). Both the Wagon R (-10%) and Swift (-9%) drop but contain the Hyundai Grand i10 (+20%), Elite i20 (+15%) and Creta (+25%) all beating the market. Notice also the Hyundai Verna up 303% thanks to a new model, the Maruti S-Cross up 70% and the Maruti Gypsy up another 447% year-on-year.
