Pretty tough times for auto industry. High fuel prices, higher input costs, taxes! Almost every other model has taken a dip where as HM managed to push 150% YOY change for the classic Amby [thumbsup]

Btw, for FIAT atleast MOM increase (114% and 185%) looks better [lol]

Nice one 350z, for me the standouts have been Duster, Innova and Fortuner.
Fortuner and Innova have been gravity defying!

Lets see how Duster stands up to the upcoming ecopressure , oops ecosport!

Highlight for me would be
*The increased sales numbers of Fiat, is this the effects of building it's own dealerships ?
*Bolero's numbers are quite amazing and unbelievable and also surprising to see Quanto being overtaken by it's elder brother Xylo.
*Very surprising to see Rexton generate some serious sales number next only to the segment leader Fortuner and smoking out Captiva and Fortuner in the process.
*The all new Swift platform is generating over 40K unit's which means more profit for Maruti despite it's marginal sales fall YOY.
*All new revised pricing on Indigo hasn't been able to increase it's sales numbers.
*No surprises with Renault camp with Duster covering up more than 80% of it's overall sales,need to see how much of this sales pie Ford can snatch with Ecosport.
*XUV seeing a sales decline MOM, is their a bottleneck in manufacturing or is it the demand coming down for this model?

It has to be a combination of exclusive dealerships and creating some traction in media space. In past couple of months, for various reasons FIAT was in news, be it - New showrooms opening, revealing Fiat future plans for India, introducing Jeep & Abarth brands, new adds on Radio etc. This again emphasis the fact that marketing plays a key role in reaching out to people. Hope FIAT's marketing team wakes up from slumber now and continue the momentum.

*need to see how much of this sales pie Ford can snatch with Ecosport
I am also very eager to see Ford's strategy for the above


Btw, sad to see one more good car going down - Fabia! Wonder what Skoda is planning for this car.

A much awaited thread. [thumbsup]350Z

The continuous decline in the sales of XUV 5OO this year, should be an immediate concern for Mahindra.
  • Duster has certainly eaten in to XUV's realm
  • The recent official recalls should have had a negative impact, with the infamous internet buzz on 'XUV niggles' doing no favour as well.
  • A common sight on roads, no more a fresh product
  • No more a VFM product[subjective] thanks to the price hike[read recent budget] with more options [read cheaper] available in the market

At the same time the old stalwarts -Scorpio, Bolero, Innova are still going strong.

The diesel nano is still about 2 years away.
I guess by that time the offset price with petrol and diesels will be covered.

@mods the YOY% changes for bolero are incorrect.
Thanks for the correction. Some updates on the sales of luxury carmakers:

> Volvo's sales in India are picking up slowly. They managed to sell 276 units in the first quarter of 2013.

> Audi has broken its own record again. It sold 1,104 units in March 2013 and 2,616 units in first quarter of 2013.

> Mercedes Benz reports growth of 5.3% for this quarter by selling 2,009 units. The E-Class is major contributor with a share of over 800 sales alone.
