India Full Year 2010: Maruti Alto crosses 300.000 sales mark, Tata Nano #14

After last month’s poor results, Tata has been busy trying to resuscitate the Nano with new TV ads, easier financing and an extended warranty, and it worked so far: the Nano is #12 in December with 5,784 sales, its best month since July. Let’s see if this recovery will last into 2011.

At the top of the ranking, the Maruti Alto stays well ahead and finishes the year at 300,950 sales, the first time in Indian car sales’ history that a model sells over 300k units in a year. The Hyundai i10 is #2 at 159,158 units, but dropped to 4th in December. The Maruti Wagon R is #3 in 2010 at 156,509 sales and #2 in December, and the Maruti Swift is #4 this year with 142,549 units (#3 in Dec). The Tata Indica and Maruti Dzire (a Swift sedan) are also above 100k sales this year.

December highlights also include the first appearance in the Top 20 of the new VW Vento (3,160 sales), the Skoda Fabia breaking into the Top 30 for the first time at #26 and the very first Toyota Etios sales at 407 units.

  1. Hi, I do think this is an excellent blog. I stumbledupon it ;
    ) I may revisit once again since I book marked it. Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide others.

  2. Seriously nice work man ! It would also be cool if you could give the stats for the Luxury car, ie the Audis and the Mercs, ales in 2010.
