As the passenger vehicle segment is on boom, the variety of passenger vehicles offered by the different auto manufacturers in India is huge and it comes asa news that country’s largest PV manufacturer by its volume,Maruti Suzuki has once again won the top four place in top 10 PV in FY15 with its Alto model as concluded by the recent SIAM data in the financial yearFY15.
It doesn’t come as a surprise that half of the passenger vehicles is ruled by the Maruti Suzuki automaker, grabbing the first four slots of the list with its Maruti Swift, Dzire and Wagon R positioned at the 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively. At the 10th position, the company’s Omni van could manage to hold that position this financial year.
Going further, as usual, Honda’s City has surprised everyone with its double the sales number as compared to the last year, with its sales unit standing at 77384 and positioning it at the 9th position. For this position, the closest rival that fought with the Honda City was none other than but the Maruti Ciaz and Honda Verna, which unfortunately couldn’t make it in the Top 10 PV list in FY15.
For the fact because they could record barely half the sales number to what Honda’s City alone has recorded, with sales number at 32,349 units and 31,319 units respectively. Talking about its Amaze, as expected, it couldn’t make it to the 10 best selling PV in India in FY15 as its sales dropped by -14% at 66,703 units.
Further ahead, the other famous automaker like Hyundai Motor’s India Limited (HMIL) three models made it to the list with Grand i10, Eon and its premium hatchback model Elite i20. The sales numbers for these models were recorded around 99088 units, 78334 units and 77747 units respectively.
With the detailed analyses, the Eon’s sales actually went down by -9.4% as compared to the last year, reaching at 7th from 6th position last year. Elite i20 on the other hand, made a strong entry into this list with its appealing design and looks making at the 8th position.
As compared to the previous fiscal year, Grand i10 sales number grew by 36 percent with figures at 99088 units, making at the 6th position from its 8th position last year.
Despite being added to this list, one model which actually had a de-growth of over -6% in its sales is Mahindra’s Bolero retaining its 5th position by making sales figure to 100553 units.
Like the previous fiscal year, the conclusion remains somewhat the same in this fiscal year. Maruti Suzuki remains one of the highest selling PV makers in India, the Maruti’s Alto remains the best selling PV of India and once again, the Honda City sales number surprised each one of us.
