With overall domestic PV sales of 12,906 units Tata-Motors market share is 4.9%.

Tiago stood as the top seller for Tata with sales of 5,399 units. Zest’s sales(2,615 units) are steadily improving since a couple of months, it can be due to sales to taxi market or due to rub of effect from Tiago. Sales of the newly launched HEXA stood at 1,498 units. Sales of rest of the portfolio constituting Nano, Indica, Vista, Indigo, Manza, Sumo, Bolt, Safari and Storme declined.

August 2016 Car Sales: Model wise sales figures

Indian automobile market is one of the most difficult markets for automakers to understand. Due to its diversity, whole country cannot be treated as a single entity. Consumer preferences change from state to state. Only few parameters can be commonized for the  whole country. Owing to these difficulties, car companies at times fail to sell some really good vehicles. Presently the whole country is crazy about SUVs. Kwid is a big success for Renault, its success can be attributed to its SUV like design. Few good but overpriced cars such as Innova Crysta and Hyundai Creta are selling like hot cakes and on the other hand some good cars like S-Cross though priced perfectly(after price correction by Maruti) are finding no takers.

Maruti, despite a decline in sales of its top selling cars Alto(-9%), Dzire(-16%), Swift(-23%) and Wagon-R(-1%) remained market leader. All these four models are aging and need an upgrade. Maruti already started developing new generation Swift based on Baleno platform and recently disclosed its plans to upgrade Alto. Baleno and Brezza are performing quite well and helped the company to maintain its market share. Ritz on the other hand showed an improvement of 158% compared to the same month last year. S-Cross though a good vehicle is not finding many takers, its sales are less than what it deserves.

11 cars from Maruti’s stable are among the top 20 selling cars of India! First 4 postions belong to Maruti only and 8,9,12,13,14,15 & 17 positions also belong to Maruti.  Car sales august 2016 Maruti

Hyundai’s top trio i10 Grand, i20 Elite and Creta together contributed  to 75% of the company’s sales. And the next three in ranking Eon, Xcent and i10 together contributed to 22% of the sales. The only under performers in the portfolio are Verna, Elentra and Santa-Fe. With the introduction of new generation Verna, its sales are expected to grow. Hyundai is planning to expand its portfolio to bridge the gap between Creta and Santa-Fe by introducing Tucson.

Hyundai with 4 cars is next to Maruti in the top 20 list. The company’s top four cars are i10 Grand, i20 Elite, Creta and Xcent.  Car sales august 2016 Hyundai

As always with Mahindra, Bolero is  its top seller. Bolero, Scorpio, KUV-100, TUV-300 and XUV-500 sales constitute 93% of total sales! KUV-100 despite its toyish looks is selling well. Selling Quanto even after the introduction of NuvoSport looks like an inventory clearance exercise. Rexton’s poor performance discouraged the company from introducing new SsangYong models.

Bolero(position 18) is the only car from Mahindra in top 20 list.

All the bread and butter models of Honda saw less takers this month compared to last year. Amaze(-24%), Jazz(-29%) and City(-21%) are the company’s top sellers. BR-V is eating into Mobilio(-68%) sales. All new Brio is coming up with refreshed interiors.

This time there is no single car from Honda in top 20 list.

Tata is having good products in its basket, but not selling well due to brand perception issues. Tiago is Tata’s present bestseller, is all set to upturn the company’s fortunes & perception. Tiago is all that is needing for Tata at the moment. Styling proved to be one of the downplayer for the company and the other being after-sales-service. Bolt(-35%) and Zest(5%) are good products but failed to find takers. Tiago is eating into Nano(-68%) sales. Come on Tata ramp up your production to meet Tiago’s demand.

Owing to the success of Kwid, Renault climbed to top 5 position in Indian car sales.
