India 2005: Maruti Alto takes the lead, Santro & Indica on podium

After beating the Maruti 800 over the second half of 2004, the Maruti Alto officially takes the title of best selling car in India over the Full Year 2005. I don’t have any data for the whole year, just for the period April-November 2005 so if you have any more data please get in touch!

Below the Alto at 102,970 units, the Hyundai Santro (aka Atos), built in India, takes the 2nd spot over the period at 73,822 sales and the Tata Indica is 3rd with 70,267 sales. The Maruti 800 is down to #4 at 58,897 units, just ahead of the Maruti Wagon R. The Maruti Swift, launched in June 2005, is already #6 in November with an impressive 7% market share.
