Very strong start of the year for Indian car sales: no less than 13 models either beat their volume record or are at their yearly best. At the very top, both the Maruti Alto at 33,118 sales (+57% on Jan’10!) and the Hyundai i10 at 16,694 units are at their highest. At this rhythm we could see the Alto finish the year at 400-475,000 sales, and the i10 around 200,000 sales…
The Top 6 is identical to the 2010 ranking, with the Maruti Wagon R, Swift & Tata Indica above 10,000 units. In 7th, the Ford Figo delivers its best ever month at 8,616 units, lifting Ford to levels never-seen before in the country. The Tata Nano’s recovery continues: it is 11th with 6,703 sales this month, or 74% of its best ever month.
First time above 5,000 sales for the Toyota Innova, above 4,000 for the Maruti A-Star (aka new Suzuki Alto). The Toyota Etios climbs to #33 with 1,651 sales.
