First of all congratulations to TAI
support team.Slowly but surely we are gaining more and more mainstream popularity and it's very much showing: this thread is the prime example.Now finally all the car makers have started to share their monthy breakdown of no.s with us.Feels proud to be part of such wonderful,mild,young and buoyant forum.
Now coming back to the topic,here is what I feel about the January sales figures: Maruti:
Maruti is enjoying the top spot,because of the Swift/Dezire sisters.Even though I don't like the looks of the new Alto,market seemed to have embraced it with both arms,warmly.And what to say about the champion Wagon R,despite being a petrol car it still rocks the sales chart.Ertiga dominating the entry level people mover segment without much muster.
And I really don't see anyone challenging Maruti's domination in the near future. Hyundai:
Despite being a better looking car with upmarket interiors Eon just can't shake the entry level hatch king Alto.8000 units when your competetion is doing around 30K no.s is surely disappointing.
i10's sales also have fallen,perhaps people have started to wait for new gen i10 based upon Kia Picanto.
i20's figures are very impressive indeed.Despite being the most expensive hatch it continues to do well.
I think now it's time that HML shuts stop Santro's production rather than flogging the dead horse. Mahindra:
Continues to dominate the UV segment with aplomb.Also nice to see people choosing Rexton over Overpriced Fortuner.500 units is really impressive.
Scorpio continues to sell well,as if nothing can shake off the mighty Scorpio.
XUV5OO sales even though great are not that great as we expected.With the news floating around that Mahindra has increased production output @ 5000 units,still they can't sell that much(despite being exported to multiple countries outside of India).Is it because of the perceived unreliability of XUV? Tata:
Aah,my poor li'l(big??) Tata.What to say more than this
Better launch Nano diesel ASAP
.TML are you listening? THE X-OVER
