Car sales in July 2021 improved well when compared with the same period a year before
The Maruti Wagon R topped the July 2021 car sales chart having registered sales of 22,836 units with a 69 percent year-on-year (YoY) growth.
In second place came the Maruti Swift with 18,434 unit sales, followed by the Baleno which registered sales of 14,729 units in July.
Fourth-placed Maruti Ertiga had 13,434 unit sales and closely following the MPV was the Creta, 13,000 units if which Hyundai sold this past month.
Then comes the Maruti Alto which, despite finding close to 12,900 new buyers, lost 6 percent sales YoY. It is the only car in the top 10 to have lost a bit of sales.
Seventh-placed Maruti Vitara Brezza was breathing down the neck of the Alto with 12,676 unit sales. Similarly, there was little to differentiate between cars that occupied the eighth, ninth and tenth positions in the July 2021 car sales chart.
While the Maruti Dzire found 10,470 new homes, the Tata Nexon (10,287 units) and Maruti Eeco (10,057 units) were close by.
In the bottom 15 positions, cars such as the Tata Altroz (6980 units), Maruti S-Presso (6818 units), Toyota Innova Crysta (6093 units), Mahindra XUV300 (6027 units), Maruti XL6 (4190 units) and Hyundai Aura (4034 units) did very well.
Other vehicles, barring the Kia Seltos (6983 units) performed better than they did in July 2020. The Korean crossover lost 16 percent sales YoY.
