India January 2011: Alto, i10 & Figo beat records, Nano grows

The Maruti Alto sold 33,118 units in India in January, its best ever month.

Very strong start of the year for Indian car sales: no less than 13 models either beat their volume record or are at their yearly best. At the very top, both the Maruti Alto at 33,118 sales (+57% on Jan’10!) and the Hyundai i10 at 16,694 units are at their highest. At this rhythm we could see the Alto finish the year at 400-475,000 sales, and the i10 around 200,000 sales…

The Top 6 is identical to the 2010 ranking, with the Maruti Wagon R, Swift & Tata Indica above 10,000 units. In 7th, the Ford Figo delivers its best ever month at 8,616 units, lifting Ford to levels never-seen before in the country. The Tata Nano’s recovery continues: it is 11th with 6,703 sales this month, or 74% of its best ever month.

First time above 5,000 sales for the Toyota Innova, above 4,000 for the Maruti A-Star (aka new Suzuki Alto). The Toyota Etios climbs to #33 with 1,651 sales.

    Hi Matt,

    Impressed with your work in compiling such relevant data. Keep it up.
    I had two questions: Firstly do you maintain any company specific data tables similar to these which would be global in nature? Secondly what is generally the speed of your updates; as in if sales figures come in by say 1st or 2nd of the month by which date do you update your blog with these data tables?

    Thanks a lot in advance!!!
    Great blog
    Regards

      Hi Nishant,
      Thanks very much for your praise, I really appreciate it! It’s good to see you are enjoying the blog.
      Concerning the speed of updates, I try and update each country as soon as I get new information, so if sales figures come in by 1st or 2nd of the month I will have it up on the blog here no more than a couple of days later.
      I’m not sure I understand your first question, could you please clarify it?
      Thanks
      Matt

      HI matt,
      I meant to say whether you would have information on model basis for says cars like Jaguar/Land Rover which are sold in various geographies? So a kind of cummulative or geography wise data!
      Hope i’ve explained it better this time around!
      Regards
      Nishant

        Hey Nishant,
        I see. I have a top 10 best selling cars in the world in 2009 ranking: click on the ‘world’ category on the right hand side of the site and scroll down to the 2nd article.
        This type of overall data by model is very rare to obtain as it assumes knowledge of sales figures in every country in the world, which I don’t yet! :-). I expect the 2010 top 10 to come up in April/May this year.
        I hope that answers your question?
        Thanks for your support.
        Matt

    sir,
    its really nice to see the sales figures of the top 40 models in india. but one thing i dont agree is , why u people left fiat linea ?. it sold nearly 9,589 units in 2010. u hav included other models which r less in sales than linea. thats very bad and how can people like me believe in this chart u hav given.

    regards,
    sanjeev

      Hi Sajeev,
      It’s great to see that you are enjoying my blog. One thing you might want to do though is double check your facts before calling it ‘very bad’. The article you commented on is about car sales in India in January 2011. I have added a column detailing total 2010 sales as a reference only. In January, the Fiat Linea sold 947 units, positioning it 41st, therefore not making the cut into the top40 which is featured here. The fact that it sold 9,589 units in 2010 is irrelevant here given we are talking about the January best sellers. 9,589 sales allowed the Fiat Linea to rank 38th in 2010, which I have no doubt you would have noticed from my December 2010 article about India published in this very blog.
      I hope this little note has helped restored your trust in my tables 😉
      Have a good day!
      Matt
