Top 10 Hot Sellers in February 2013

Maruti’s gang dominates half of the top ten sales. Mahindra Bolero and Hyundai’s trio continue to move forward on a steady pace though.



Car Manufacturers Market Share in February 2013

The colors of Indian car market share. :smile: Note that it's based on total sales of the specified manufacturers only (High-end carmakers excluded).



Chevrolet February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

There’s a sudden drop in demand of Sail U-VA after the initial hype. It remains to be seen if Sail sedan will follow the trend or become GM's next top seller.



Fiat February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

It hurts whenever I prepare Fiat India’s sales chart. This time, let me offer them something more valuable than usual suggestions – Good luck!



Ford February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

Fiesta Classic, a dated but otherwise competent car is slowly losing its sheen in front of the new entrants.



Hindustan Motors & Mitsubishi February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

HM – Mitsubishi partnership is now alternatively also better known as ‘Ambassador – Pajero’ joint venture.



Honda February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

Even a stable carmaker like Honda could not withstand against the overall weak market response received in Feb 2013.



Hyundai February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

Eon, i10 and i20 are back in queue after observing an unusual trend last month. Decade old Santo is amazingly still enjoying a fair share in the market.



Mahindra February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

Despite the market slow down, Mahindra managed to make profit in Feb. Let’s see if next month favors them considering recently hiked tax on SUVs.



Maruti Suzuki February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

Kizashi and Grand Vitara are good for nothing it terms of sales for Maruti Suzuki. Plans to launch new SX4 is a step in the right direction looking at these figures.



Nissan February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

Quickly diminishing figures of Micra and Sunny are already a good enough reason for Nissan to start worrying.



Renault February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

Renault Duster's figures continues to fly higher. Now Ecosport is around the corner, question arises, for how long?



Skoda February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

Skoda India is not in its best state of affairs right now. Their only big seller, Rapid, is no more running the profit mill.



Tata Motors February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

A big bad month for Tata Motors. The Nano, which once begun to enjoy some sales, is now back to square one.



Toyota February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

Upcoming 1.5 engine on Liva might help enhancing its overall appeal among audience. While India’s most loved MUV continues to delight the buyers.



Volkswagen February 2013 Indian Car Sales Figures

VW noticed a slight drop in sales on YoY basis. The downward trend of Polo & Vento sales (if continued) could become a serious cause of concern for German carmaker.

Brilliant post 350Z
What is it that makes a similarly priced Maruti sell 10X more than a TML product ( swift vs Vista)
-peace of mind-less problems/car, better after sales, better resale...
How ever is TML going to get out of this hole?
Karl Slym today unveiled some of his mind " http://profit.ndtv.com/news/corporates/article-tata-motors-needs-to-tweak-passenger-car-strategy-karl-slym-318897"
-small tweaks-short term; -few months
-new models- medium term-a year
-new portfolio-long term -???
Well--this will take care of better products, but no mention of the sale process, after sales or reliability-perhaps he is aware and hopefully will adress these as well

Kudos Guys great compilation.
Pajero sport seems to be doing decent despite next to ziltch marketing and non existing presence in india. If only they spread wider and farther, it could get close to half the mighty fortuner i feel.

Now not only Mahindra but Toyoto has overtaken tata motors. So a poor image and improper after sales can renegade a former no 2 to no 5 position within one year.

Not a good month for the industry. Everyone had an average performance except, duster and amby[lol]

Tata and nissan take a huge dip. Tata's woes may get a little less if customers respond to the price cuts, and not to mention that recent hike in excise duty from april may lead to a good month of march for tata.
As for nissan, I dont know what they should do. They have been completely blown into pieces by their partner renault.
Maruti and hyundai seem steady at the top with marginal losses.

Considering these are the final days of fiat-tata JV we should not expect much sales, but, exclusive showrooms are functional in many cities, wonder what they are doing? And an interesting observation, a worthless crap like estillo was sold more than linea punto combined. [lol]
This calls desperately for new launches and price cuts.

Amazing how the Amby sales are rising!!

Maybe HM should introduce a whole new revamped variant with
better fit and finish to appeal to more buyers.

HM is now above FIAT. sells more pajero sport than the punto and linea.

same goes for the ARIA.

time to sink the baby and develop something new based on its platform.

The 2014 Tata Grande based on Aria's X2 platform with styling
inputs from Range Rover line-up seems to be the most
attractive Tata offering in the near future.[drive]

Duster is doing phenomenally well, Ecosport team must be watching this very closely and drooling in anticipation - will the ecosport change Ford fortunes in India - now thats a million dollar question !

A very good post like last month. Brilliant Graphics [clap]

Tata is going down and down they need to come up with some strategy quickly to recover.

It seems due to economic conditions and lack luster fuel policy of GOI every manufacturers sales are going down barring a few models.

Cheers,

Much awaited thread

Alto, Swid, Dzire, Wagon R --- Non stop sales

Innova, Bolero,XUV500 continuing Strongly

Tata-- Disappointing. Hope they bring new products rather than modifying the existing models

A big shout out for 350Z (though ironically Nissan is on looser side ,time to reconsider your username? [;)])
So a bad month for Indian Automobiles, and a bloodbath and Mr Darwin is on working.
I really hope management of Nissan, Tata and fiat didn't forgot that "its the strongest" that always wins (or "recession takes bad blood out" if you prefer economics)
