India September 2010

The Indian car market is growing strongly in 2010 but interestingly it is not getting more fragmented along the way. The best selling car, the Maruti Alto, is logically increasing its sales month after month (it reached 30,147 units in September – as many as the US sales of Toyota Camry in the same period!), but also its market share which reaches a whopping 17.8% this month.

Three other models are above 10,000 monthly units sold: the Hyundai i10 jumps to 2nd with 14,434 sales, only 80 sales above the Maruti Wagon R, and the Maruti Swift is 4th with 11,913 sales.

Full Ranking table and more commentaries below.

The Tata Indigo Manza is up 6 spots in 5th with 8,783 units sold, whereas the Mahindra Bolero goes up 9 spots to 7th at 8,171 sales, and outstanding performance for Mahindra.

The Hyundai i20 continues its push and is now solidly established in the Top 10 in 8th: it has gained 2 spots every month since June. Excellent performance of the Ford Figo, a previous generation Ford Fiesta launched last March and built in Chennai for emerging markets, 10th this month with nearly 4% of the market and giving Ford a 149% boost of its sales year-on-year.

The Honda City delivers its best Indian month ever in 15th position at 6,164 sales and a 3.6% market share, up from 20th in June. Also to be noted is the counter-performance of the Tata Nano which, after having flirted with the Top 5 during the last 3 months, falls back to 16th in September with 5,520 sales.
