    India car sales analysed – January 2021

    The new year 2021 has ushered in a ray of positivity and has built fresh hopes. The Indian government launched the COVID-19 vaccine on 16 January and commenced the first phase of vaccination for healthcare and frontline workers. As businesses gradually gain pace and consumer sentiments improve, car manufacturers have witnessed modest growth in sales in January 2021. Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, and Tata Motors continue to be the top-three highest-selling vehicle manufacturers in the country in January 2021. 

    The country’s largest car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki witnessed cumulative sales of 1,39,002-units in January 2021 as compared to 1,39,844-unit sales in the same period last year, thereby witnessing a mild drop in sales by 0.6 per cent. The top-three key contributors for Maruti Suzuki in January were the Alto (18,260 units), Swift (17,180 units), and the WagonR (17,165 units). 

    India’s largest car exporter, Hyundai continues to be the second bestseller in the country. Interestingly, the company has witnessed a healthy 23.8 per cent growth with 52,005-unit sales last month as against 42,002-unit sales in January 2020. The top-three popular sellers for Hyundai last month were – the Creta (12,284 units), Venue (11,779 units), and the Grand i10 (10,865 units).
