The Ciaz has been replaced by the Celerio for the 10th spot while Maruti continues to hold on to the top 4 positions. The Elite i20 consistently has demand outpacing supply.
The buying sentiment is certainly high and the Indian auto market is heading towards a brighter future or at least that’s what sales for February 2015 seem to suggest. With Maruti leading the charts as usual followed by Hyundai, most products have not only been performing consistently but have also seen a dramatic rise in sales keeping the growth momentum going. With a positive sentiment, let’s take a look at the 10 biggest sellouts for February 2015 that we reckon will be holding on to that position for a long time.
1) As repetitive as it gets, Maruti Suzuki continues to be the undisputed king of volumes in the Indian market with the Alto entry-level hatchback leading the charge. The small car saw a healthy increase in sales by 2784 units compared to January 2015 and is the highest sales recorded for the car in the past six months. Maruti also continues to hold on to the top four spots with the Swift, DZire and Wagon R coming at second, third and fourth respectively.
2) The Swift continues to hold on to the second spot with 19,546 units sold but saw a 0.6 percent decline in sales compared to January this year. The DZire though wasn’t able to keep up with its consistent sales record with 17,085 units sold in February, registering a drop of 12.5 percent in volumes compared to the previous month. The decline was most likely due to the facelifted version being launched during the month, expect the sales to surge once again from this month onwards.
3) The Elite i20 continues to maintain its dominance at the fifth position month-after-month being Hyundai’s best selling product in the country. With the demand superseding production, the automaker plans to increase the manufacturing capacity of the premium hatchback in a bid to reduce the waiting period that currently stands at an average of two and a half months.
4) Hyundai India is also at its dominating best with the Grand i10 holding on to the sixth position while the Eon entry-level hatchback has been generating positive sales month-on-month clocking in 7200 units during the last month. Compared to January this year, the Eon’s sales shot up by a healthy 5.6 percent.
5) The most consistent performer of the lot, the Mahindra Bolero continues to be the most favoured choice as a utility vehicle among the masses and managed to grab the seventh position on the top 10 list, replacing the Honda City. Despite new competition coming in, the MUV continues to impress the audiences with its rugged build, go-anywhere appeal and passenger hauling capabilities. The Bolero also saw a 1.1 percent rise in sales, higher from the 8515 units sold in January this year.
6) While the Amaze continues to amuse the folks at Honda holding on to the ninth position on the list, Maruti’s new Ciaz has been replaced by the Celerio for the tenth position with 6772 units clocked during the previous month. The Ciaz saw a 9.9 percent drop in sales with just 5410 units sold in February.
