India Auto Sales Report (January 2012)

the Toyota Etios Liva Diesel

Hat Tip: has a long lasting resource hopefully, which really works up the Indian Auto sales numbers, best I have seen yet

In January 2012 the recovery chords from December continued into a more coherent score as Maruti reported domestic sales of more than a 100k and exports growth of 53% or more than 7000 units to 14.5k units for the month. Mahindra continued its better performance with almost 45k vehicles for the month of which 19,325 were passenger cars/MUVs/SUVs.

According to the India WSJ, Maruti’s Diesel models scored a 34% uptick while petrol models declined 6% in the mix, making it a 75:25 from a 80:20 till now

The old 2,3 at 14% share each ramped up behind Maruti with Tata Motors and Hyundai scoring 34,600 and 33,900 respectively Hyundai’s exports of 12,000 units put it firmly in no. 2 with 49,901 in January 2012

Ford and GM posted single digit declines to 9,200 and 8,200 respectively  while Toyota came back stongly with 7,700 units of the Eon to 17,500

VW and Nissan also managed to sell more than 5000 units and the luxury segments would have probably added only 250 other vehicles incl VW and Audi

Skoda sold more than 3000 units under new management while Honda grew back from 1000 units in December but still sold only 1,725 units for the month

Thus Cars sales for the month have grown more than 20% from December 2011 to 270k or a 3.2 mln annual run rate incl exports

SIAM reports 2011 total sales to 19,46,000 units and the 10% yoy growth likely takes it to 2.2 mln four wheelers and another million in Commercial Vehicles from 800k in 2011 at a faster clip

In the Two wheelers, Hero Moto scored a consistent 520k and Honda came in third with less than 190k while Bajaj Auto reports tomroow at the 330k figure
