Car Sales India: 2011

This is an increasingly important market in size and potential. A car maker has to assemble cars locally to achieve any penetration due to stiff tariffs. Suzuki had supply problems which show below in the sales slump. The Land Rover and Jaguar sales are estimates, due to Tata steadfastly refusing to elaborate in any way other than to say they are doing fine.

1 Suzuki 685,000 -36%
2 Hyundai 374,000 5%
3 Tata 297,000 -14%
4 Mahindra 196,000 19%
5 Toyota 136,000 82%
6 GM 111,500 1%
7 Ford 96,000 15%
8 VW 76,000 140%
9 Honda 47,500 -24%
10 Skoda 30,000 49%
11 Nissan 21,000 197%
12 Fiat 16,500 -24%
13 BMW 9,400 51%
14 Mercedes 7,400 28%
15 Audi 5,500 72%
16 MItsubishi 4,600
17 Hindustan 2,600 -76%
18 Renault 1,400
19 Land Rover 950
20 Jaguar 350
21 Porsche 300
22 Rolls Royce 100

Brands such as Suzuki (Maruti) and Hyundai must be glad they got in early and established a strong sales base. Others such as GM and Ford and especially Fiat, who did get in early also, must be feeling they should have done better.
