MG Hector range and Tata’s Harrier posted high growth

February 2021 was a stellar month for SUV sales, as both midsize models and premium SUVs recorded massive sales growth.

Hyundai’s Creta leads the midsize SUV sales big time, having found 12,428 takers in February, with an enormous growth figure (1675 percent).

In second place sits the Seltos, as Kia managed to sell 8305 units of the model. However, it lost a major chunk of its sales in the year-on-year (YoY) comparison.

MG retailed 3662 units of its Hector range of SUVs to take third spot in the list, followed by the Mahindra Scorpio (3532 units). Both vehicles registered very strong growth percentages.

Fifth-placed Maruti S-Cross (2505) was shadowed by the Harrier from Tata Motors, for its sold 2030 times over. Then comes the new entrant, the 2021 Tata Safari, that was taken home by 1707 buyers in its very first month.

Jeep had strong outing in February, for its refreshed Compass brought in 1103 unit sales. It looks like Mahindra is losing out on a lot by not launching the new-generation XUV500. The old model only lured in 829 people last month.

Similarly, Renault’s ageing Duster (337 units) and the Nissan Kicks (263 units) that never took off, once again, did not do well.

Two electric vehicles come next in the February 2021 SUV sales list, them being the MG ZS EV (204 units) and the Hyundai Kona Electric (10). The ZS EV posted a 29 percent increase in sales YoY.

Skoda’s Karoq came last and contributed 2 units to the overall sales of the segment that stood at 36,917 units with a 83 percent growth rate.

Toyota’s Fortuner tops the February 2021 premium SUV sales as it continued its triumphant run. In all, 2053 units of the vehicle got sold with a 36 percent YoY growth rate.

Up next comes the Ford Endeavour, that saw an equally impressive surge in its sales, for 801 units of the SUV were retailed last month, a 44 percent increase.

The MG Gloster did pretty much the same number it did in January 2021, while the Hyundai Tucson too followed the trend.

Volkswagen retailed 63 units of the Tiguan Allspace in February 2021 (133 percent YoY growth), while 36 units of the Mahindra Alturas G4 also left showrooms during the same period.

Only 1 unit of the Honda CR-V was sold this past month, while total sales of the vehicles in the segment stood at 3569 units with a 66 percent growth.
