May 2022 UV Sales – all the top-seller post YoY growth but have fared poorly when compared to last month
In May, 2022, UV sales, while all cars have recovered from last year’s Covid havoc with impressive YoY growth, they have fared poorly when compared to April’s performance. This has been the case even for new launches like Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and XL6.
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga came on top this time with 12,226 unit sales with a YoY growth of 354 percent. But, it has lost 2663 units when compared to April sales.
The company’s entry-level MPV, Eeco came second with a similar story. While it registered an impressive YoY growth of 856 percent, it has lost 672 units when compared to the previous month sales.
The oldest car in this list, Mahindra Bolero, took the third spot selling 8767 units with a YoY growth of 149 percent. Bolero continues to be the vehicle of choice in rural areas owing to its ruggedness and go-anywhere capabilities.
Kia’s latest Carens came fourth with 4612 unit sales. The sales are down by more than 1000 units predominantly due to many users complaining about AC condensation issues. Kia technicians are, reportedly, clueless about a fix.

At number 5, Maruti Suzuki Nexa’s XL6 is among the very few cars in this list that have witnessed least de-growth. The MPV has lost sales of just under 300 units when compared to April’s performance.
Toyota Innova Crysta has lost big numbers this time. While it managed 6351 units in April, all it could deliver in May were 2737 units.
But, the popular MPV came sixth with excellent YoY growth. The news about the next generation Innova in the making could have deterred potential buyers this time around.
At number 7, the cheapest MPV after the Eeco, Renault Triber, continues to post decent sales and remains in limelight. Kia Carnival, Mahindra Marazzo, and Toyota Vellfire took the last places. Marazzo posts dismissal performance for its price tag.
