India June 2023: Record market, Maruti Suzuki Jimny and MG Comet land

The MG Comet has landed in India.

New wholesales in India edge up 2.2% year-on-year in June to a new record 327,544 units, meaning the H1 volume is above the 2 million mark for the first time at 2,009,490 (+10%). The Top four manufacturers all beat the market with Maruti Suzuki (+8.4%) in the lead above Hyundai (+2%) passing the 50,000 units mark for the third time this year, and Tata (+4.5%). Mahindra (+22.3%) is a lot more dynamic whereas Kia (-19.3%) suffers. Toyota (+10.4%) and MG (+13.8%) are solid, Volkswagen (+2.4%) roughly matches the market and Citroen (+1202.6%) shoots up again thanks to the new C3.

The Maruti Suzuki Wagon R (-8.9%) returns to the top spot it holds year-to-date despite a disappointing result. It distances the Maruti Suzuki Swift (-1.6%) and the Hyundai Creta (+4.8%) scores its first podium finish since May 2021 when it ranked #1. Leader last month, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno (-12.6%) falls to #4 in June while the Tata Nexon (-3.3%) rounds out the Top 5. The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza (+140.2%), Hyundai Venue (+12.5%) and Tata Punch (+5.5%) also beat the market just as the new Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara lodges its 2nd ever Top 10 and breaks its volume record at 10,486. We welcome the Maruti Suzuki Jimny (#36) and MG Comet EV (#54).
