The Indian car market is up a very healthy 15% in February at 260,053 registrations, the highest monthly sales total ever in India! This brings the 2012 year-to-date figure to 502,791 units, up 11%. No surprise in pole position: the Maruti Alto still leads the way with 32,909 sales and 12.7%. The Maruti Swift ranks #2 and becomes the second model only with the Alto to sell over 20,000 units in a single month in India at a best-ever 20,739!

Hyundai Eon

Boosted by the new generation now in dealerships, the Maruti Dzire – a Swift sedan – jumps up to third position and also breaks its sales record at 15,068 sales and 5.8% share, its previous best being 11,797 in April 2011. Below the Maruti Wagon R still solid at 5% share, a third model breaks records this month: the Hyundai Eon passes the 10,000 monthly units bar for the first time with 10,480 sales at a best-ever #5 only 6 month after its launch last September.

Honda Brio

The Tata Nano is up one spot on January to #8 with 9,217 sales, its best monthly figure since last April and second best ever. With Thailand supply now back to normal, the Honda City is back up to #14 with 6,052 sales while the Honda Brio delivers its best month so far at #33 with 2,046 sales. Other models breaking their record this month are the Mahindra XUV500 at 2,729 sales, the Skoda Rapid at 2,204 units and the Tata Venture with 1,102 sales.

  1. 2012 is surely a year where automakers will break but still too low Luxury car sales. Luxury car sales in 2011: BMW 9.412, Mercedes 7.430, Audi 5.511, Porsche 322, Volvo 320, Ferrari 24, Aston Martin nearly 30, officialy not announced. India need to be better in Luxury car sales, hope 2012 will be much better , it is also so that only 25% from peoples which can afford a luxury car buy it.
