Top 25 Selling Cars In January 2021
Well, there are no surprises when it comes to who is the dominant player, but it looks like a change has set in.
|Rank||OEM||Model||Jan ’21 Sales||Jan ’20 Sales||YoY Growth|
|9||Hyundai||Grand i10 NIOS||10,865||8774||24%|
Maruti Suzuki’s Alto sits atop the January 2021 car sales chart, followed closely by the Swift from the automaker.
However, despite posting high sales figures, both cars (18,260 units for the Alto and 17,180 units for Swift) witnessed a year-over-year (YoY) degrowth.
Third-placed Wagon R, however, posted a 13 percent growth, 17,165 units of which were driven home by customers this past month.
The country’s top automaker’s premium hatchback, the Baleno, posted 16,648 unit sales, while the Dzire, which occupies the fifth spot in the January 2021 car sales list with just over 15,000 units to its name, followed close by.
In sixth place sits the Creta, close to 12,300 examples of which Hyundai retailed in January 2021, while another SUV model from the carmaker, the Venue, came seventh with 11,779 unit sales.
Eeco from Maruti comes next (11,680 units), and rounding up the top 10 spots are the Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS (10,865 units) and the Vitara Brezza from Maruti with 10,623 unit sales.
In the next 15 positions, cars like the Maruti Ertiga (9565 units), Tata Nexon (8225 units), Altroz (7378 units), Tiago (6909 units), Honda Amaze (5477 units) and Mahindra XUV300 (4612 units), all did well, posting very solid YoY growth percentage.
Notably, the new i20 registered 8505 unit sales and leads the Altroz. It would have gotten pretty close to the Baleno had Hyundai priced it aggressively. Tata, on the other hand, seems to be enjoying a solid run, partly thanks to its safety-based ad campaigns.
In all, no less than 10 models in the January 2021 car sales list posted degrowth, (with 6 of them being Marutis), while 14 models registered positive growth.
Ten of the top automaker’s products have made it to the list, and blocked the top 5 positions exclusively for Maruti. While 5 Hyundai cars feature in the list, 3 each from Mahindra and Tata and 2 from Kia also made the cut.
