The only company other than Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai to get place in top ten positions is Tata and the model is Tiago. Tata Tiago grew by a good 53% and impacted Celerio sales which saw a decline of 30%. Other model to see a phenomenal sales growth is Hyundai Verna, it grew by 413% from 897 units to 4,601 units. Though it grew by 413% it failed to overtake Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. Renault Kwid’s sales are steadily declining and the newly launched Captur isn’t helping much in setting the sales chart on fire. The only model from Honda’s stable to get place in top 25 list is WRV.
Of the top 25, 12 are from Maruti Suzuki, 5 are from Hyundai, 2 are from Mahindra, 2 are from Tata, 1 is from Honda, 1 is from Toyota, 1 is from Ford, and 1 is from Renault. That is nearly half of the models in the list are from Maruti stable and that is a commendable job. Tata Motors very well knew that challenging Maruti & Hyundai and displacing them from their positions is a tough ask and that is why Tata Motors is aiming at third position in the sales chart and left the first two positions to Maruti and Hyundai respectively.
