Just before March figures come through, I thought I would give you a quick update on India as thanks to LMC Automotive I will now be able to share with you more complete data for this country including Commercial Vehicles (Light, Medium and Heavy). Overall, this means Indian car sales totalled 2.93 million units in 2013 (vs. 2.47 million passenger cars) which doesn’t change the country’s 2013 worldwide ranking. In February they are at 264,323 registrations (-6%) vs. 212,898 as counted previously. The year-to-date stands at 533,043 sales, down 7% on 2013.

Model-wise, we are notably adding the Tata Ace at a beautiful 7th place with 8,699 sales in February (-7%) and #6 with 18,611 year-to-date (+21%) and the Mahindra Bolero Pick-ups at #13 with 5,027 units in February (+26%) and 10,246 year-to-date (+34%). This is absolutely in line with my observations from last week in Delhi and Agra. Brand-wise, I now have a Full Top 25 for you. The excitement! We see that Tata is back up to #4 thanks to its core strength in Commercial Vehicles, Ashok Leyland up to #11, Force up to #13, Piaggio #19 and (new to me) Eicher #23. We can also now follow the premium race to the top with Audi (+34%) and BMW (+31%) catching up on Mercedes (+4%).

  1. Landrover doesn’t seems to have the sales it deserve, but thats because they have a lack of dealerships compared to the Germans and also they only produce one model locally namely the Freelander 2 which is now looking little outdated., but even despite than it should sell much more vehicles because its also a part of the locally brand Tata
