India November 2020: Market growth slows to 8.9%, Tata up 108.1%, MG breaks volume record

Tata sales are up 108.1% year-on-year in India in November.

New car wholesales in India continue on their recovery albeit at a slightly slower pace in November, up 8.9% year-on-year to 286.476 units, leading to a year-to-date tally down -20.4% to 2.151.915. Brand leader Maruti (-2.4%) can’t quite catch on to the market growth and sees its market share slides to 47.4% vs. 49.9% so far this year. Maruti is joined by Renault (-6.4%) and Ford (-26%) as the only Top 10 carmakers in negative. Below Hyundai (+9.4%) almost matching the market growth, Tata (+108.1%) posts another spectacular gain to remain in their place with 7.6% share vs. 6.8% so far this year. Kia (+50.1%) beats last month’s record by just one unit at 21.022 while Mahindra (+27.9%) and Honda (+54.7%) also impress. Thanks to the arrival of the Gloster (aka LDV D90), MG breaks its all-time volume record at 4.163 units, its previous best being 3.536 in October 2019.

Over in the models ranking, the Maruti Swift (-4.2%) cements its newfound YTD leadership with a 4th consecutive monthly win and despite nudging down year-on-year. The Swift distances the Baleno (-1%), Wagon R (+11%), Alto (+1.6%) and DZire (-23.3%) in a Top 5 100% Maruti. The Hyundai Creta (+79.8%) is the best-selling SUV in the country as per last month while the Kia Sonet climbs 3 spots on October to reach a record 7th place. Further down, Tata justifies its surge with the Altroz remaining at historically high levels above 6.000 sales and its entire lineup posting generous lifts: the Harrier (+190%), Nexon (+75.2%), Tigor (+64.6%) and Tiago (+22.4%).
