Not to read too much in this month due to GST kicking in.
Chevrolet - Impact of GM winding up operations in India showing up. There must be some special offers for Cruze & Travera which is the reason of spike in sales. Cruze is one of the best vehicle from GM stable and will be missed sorely. I see these numbers dwindling soon the offers are withdrawn.
Datsun - Redi-go consistent at 2k. Don't know how their after sales service is doing ?
Fiat - Produce good vehicle and then goof up!!! This seems to be the mantra at Fiat. Can Jeep Compass end the Fiat misery in India ? Pricing will be revealed on 31 July. It will be a hint for Fiat future in India.
Ford - Figo & Aspire both are a very good vehicle. Sorry to see the numbers in which they are churning out. They deserve better numbers. Ecosport sales are on decline. Ford to come up with the Ecosport facelift ASAP
( with testing going on in full swing they might launch it by Oct.'17 ). The impact of GST on Endeavour is quite visible. Ford also keep messing up with the variants of this vehicle.
Honda : Brio & Jazz on the last phase of their sales cycle. Need a revamped version to ignite the sales chart. Honda seems to have pull the plug for Mobilio. Even the website doesn't have Mobilio in their port folio. BRV sales seems to be cannibalized by WRV. WRV settling around 4k mark. Car with sunroof in this price range is the reason ? Just imagine if they have come up with 1.5 iVtec rather than 1.2. Honda city trumped Ciaz this time around. Nothing to be written for Accord and CRV . It is time to excite D segment by bringing on sexy Civic to India.
Hyundai - The only manufacturer who have cars in top 5 apart from cars from Maruti stable. All the cars doing fairly well even the over priced Creta. With the GST rolling out the prices of Creta slashed a bit so I see it to continue its stellar performance. Verna facelift is around the corner and I hope it will give Honda City & Ciaz tough fight ( if not run for their money ). Tucson very overpriced product and the numbers show the same. Wait for the next month figure to see if consumers lap this product a bit more. If Compass is priced aggressively i see the impact on Tucson and slightly on Creta top end as well. Santa -fe why Hyundai is trying to sell this car ?
Mahindra - The only saving grace is Bolero ( thanks to the semi urban & rural demands ) , Scorpio & XUV 500. XUV 500 might be the other vehicle which is feeling heat first from Hexa & now from Compass. KUV100 & TUV300 selling around 2k. Unable to sell a single unit of Rexton ??
Maruti - The undisputed leader. Nothing to write much as the numbers speak up for themselves. With the price cuts for S-Cross it is looking more VFM
now. Ciaz is also moved to Nexa and slight upgrade is around the corner. This will further boost the sales for Maruti.
Nissan - Not sure about their marketing strategy. Heard they have started working on the next generation Sunny but it will come in 2018 only.
Renault - Nothing exciting apart from Kwid. With Kaptur being testing all around it seems to be launched pretty soon. Can it be a winner just like Kwid ? Time will tell. Duster amazing vehicle but with 2 decade old interiors. If Renault have just upgraded the interiors they can sell this in tune of 5-6 k per month IMO
Skoda - Another manufacturer with having issue with the after sales support and this is visible in their sales chart. With face lifted Octavia priced pretty well can it do numbers ? Kodiaq launch is also around the corner. I definitely pray Rapid to sell more in numbers. It is a pretty good package.
Tata - Good to see Tiago going strong. Tigor also settling up 2.5 k units. Somehow to me this is the best package for trimmed sedans . Tata deciding to discontinue Tata Safari Dicor , think Sumo & Indica will be discontinued soon. RIP Tata Safari !!! Hexa need better number please. This is an awesome vehicle . All the auto enthusiasts liked it but sad to see the numbers it is raking in.
Toyota - A manufacturer which enjoy the badge preference by Indians. The only reason why overpriced Innova Crysta is selling like hot cakes. Impact of GST is visible on Fortuner. Toyota seriously need to bring Vios ASAP
to India to excite C2 segment.
Volkswagen - Ameo cannibalizing the sales of Vento. Will be fun to see the numbers Tiguan is going to make. To me it is a bit over priced even after price correction post GST.
P.S : The opinion above are personal and doesn't meant to offend any make or any model.
