Tata Nexon continued to be the most sold SUV in India in July 2022 as it finished ahead of Hyundai Creta, Venue and Punch
In the month of July 2022, Tata Motors’ Nexon finished on top of the SUV sales standings as 14,214 units were recorded against 10,287 units during the same period last year with a YoY volume increase of 38 per cent. The Nexon did help Tata post its highest monthly sales tally last month and it was also aided by the Punch micro SUV.
The Punch was the fourth most sold SUV in the country last month as 11,007 units were recorded. The Hyundai Creta finished in the second position with 12,625 units against 13,000 units in July 2021 with a YoY negative growth of 3 per cent. The Venue compact SUV was the third most sold SUV in the country with a total of 12,000 units.
This when compared to the corresponding period twelve months ago with 8,185 units, a YoY positive growth of 47 per cent was noted. The Venue received a big upgrade recently and it has certainly helped in recording good sales numbers. Its bigger sibling, the Creta, will likely gain a facelift sometime early next year.
