The Indian new car market seems to be taking a breather at the moment, down 6% year-on-year in January to 230,204 registrations. The top of the models ranking is very stable, with the Top 5 identical to the Full Year 2012 ranking, and the Top 4 100% Maruti. The Maruti Alto sells 28,685 units, its highest monthly volume since last March, the Maruti Swift is at its strongest since last May with 18,928 sales while the Maruti DZire delivers its 2nd best monthly volume ever below last May at 17,060 units and the Maruti Wagon R is back up 10 spots on December to #4.

The Hyundai i20 is up 4 spots to #6, the Hyundai Verna up 9 to #14, the Volkswagen Polo is up 12 to break its ranking and volume records in India at #15 and 4,579 units. The Mahindra Quanto is still gearing up to a best-ever 2,954 sales and the Tata Safari lodges a 2,000+sales month for the first time thanks to the Storme version.

Reversely, the Tata Nano falls further down the Indian sales charts: down 32% on December and a horrid 81% year-on-year to #37 and 1,504 sales, its 2nd worst ever month after the 1,202 units it sold in November 2011.

  1. Maruti – Suzuki is operating from India as a headquarter, with exports also from India for the world market. Toyoto, Renault, others also export because its cheaper to produce in India. Tata has hit a bottom and struggling to be in top 3-4; they have to do something great. Good brand like Fiat fails to get a 1% market share. They should launch 500L immediately

  2. The market-share of Maruti is really huge (and growing).

    Volkswagen and Renault improved their market-share.

    The market-share of Tata, Toyota, Chevrolet, Ford and Honda was getting smaller.
