1)There are some very interesting stats there. The Lodgy has sprung back from the dead. The Mobilio has replaced it :-(.
2) The City is Honda's only consistent model, it seems. If the new BR-SUV doesnt do too well, I see some problems for Honda.
3) The Duster seems to have dusted itself off and started moving again, mainly seems to be the discounts and the Creta-non availability.
4) Tata has to really feel bad here. Great products, but given the cold shoulder by the market. Ditto Ford, but there may have been an impact to Ecosport dispatches from the Chennai floods.
5) I think that the order may be slowly changing in the Indian automotive world. Renault, with its small engine, well priced models, may just elbow itself past Honda to become a No-4 on a permanent basis. And if the 2-litre diesel engine crisis gets deeper courtesy the Indian legal system, then Mahindra will have a lot of trouble coming up. So will Toyota. I actually reckon that the Innova will no longer be their mainstay. Because no one will want to buy a petrol MUV with a 2 litre engine giving 7-8 kmpl.
6) You have to hand it to Fiat. Somehow manages to stay in the 700-800 pm regime!
