This month the Maruti Alto, boosted by the facelifted K10 version, sets up a new monthly volume record in India at 38,065 units. This is nearly 5,000 units above the previous record it set just two months ago in January! The Alto delivers 104,198 sales over the first 3 months of the year, meaning if it continues at this pace it will finish the year over 400,000 sales…

The Maruti Wagon R is #2 for the first time this year at 14,885 units, followed by the Hyundai i10 at 14,185. There are 4 Marutis in the Top 5 with the Swift (#4) and DZire (#5) also at very high levels. In 6th place, the Ford Figo sets a new monthly volume record for a Ford model in India at 8,926 units. It is also the model’s highest position ever.

The Tata Nano continues to grow: up one spot in 7th with 8,707 sales, only 300 units short of its best ever month in July 2010. For the first time ever, the Nano is Tata’s best seller this month.

Five more models have their best ever month in March: the VW Vento at 3,973 sales (#19 and for the first time passing the Honda City – leader in that category for the last 13 years), VW Polo at 3,881 (#20), Maruti SX4 at 3,632 (#21), Toyota Etios at 3,257 (#23) and Nissan Micra at 2,060 (#30).

    if you go to India you see no much Corolla’s it don’t like than that the car sold 1000-1500 units per month you think than around 250-350 units as example Ford Endeavour

    car sales like very low it think Maruti Suzuki must stop with the cheap cars like A-Star,M800, and actully the Alto K10 but Alto K10 is new it is Better that Maruti Suzuki hike the prices of the Alto K10 by Around 50.000-1 Lakh rupee
