India September 2011: Hyundai Eon starts with a bang

* NOW UPDATED with BMW & Mercedes sales - See 'Read more' for the Top 50 best-selling models! *

Exceptional month in India with no less than 4 new models making their first appearance in the ranking. Keeping in mind the Indian models ranking reflects ex-factory sales and not end consumer sales, the Hyundai Eon is already #9 in September with 7,188 units delivered to dealerships, while its official launch was on October 13th.

Should the Maruti Alto be worried? Hyundai is aiming the Eon squarely at it (as well as the Wagon R) and with 21,198 sales in September the Alto is at its lowest volume in 15 months.

Mahindra XUV500

Other newcomers this month are the Nissan Sunny, #42 with 659 sales, the Mahindra XUV500 at #46 and 505 units and the Honda Brio at #53 with 171 sales.

Back to the top of the ranking, the Maruti Wagon R is #2 with 13,301 sales, its highest volume in 6 months, followed by the new gen Maruti Swift, up 2 spots on August at 11,329 units. The Tata Indica/Vista ranks 4th for the first time since March 2010 with 10,282 sales.

Notice also the Mahindra Bolero up to #6 at 9,764 units, its highest volume in at least 2 years, the Hyundai i20 back in the Top 10, the Hyundai Verna at a best-ever 4,810 sales (#18) and the Tata Nano up 11 spots on August to #24 but at a still very weak 2,936 sales.

    Maruti/Suzuki hasn’t competitor in India!!!
    but now with the new Hyundai something could change, not for the Maruti Alto, but just for Swift and Wagor R.
    i’ve thought in a better sales for Tata Nano, it’s not a good investment for the Indian group. always out of top ten. and the same for the Toyota Etios, a good car, hatchback or sedan with a good price for the Indian market. Many people continue to prefer the Maruti Dzire to the new Etios by Toyota.
