Following our series of car sales report where we tell you about how the last month went for carmakers in India. Well, this time we thought of bringing something different to you. In today’s article, we are going to talk about car brands in India and their best selling cars in February 2021. Here we will see how many cars did each brand have in the top 25 most selling cars in the last month. Without further ado, let’s get into it.
Maruti Suzuki India Ltd.
It’s not difficult to guess by now that Maruti Suzuki has got the highest number of cars in the top-selling cars list every month. February 2021 was no different. In the last month, Maruti Suzuki sold a total of 1,34,386 units out of which they had 10 cars in the top 25! Well, that is a great figure to achieve. Maruti Suzuki seems to be unbeatable in terms of sales. Every month we see Maruti Suzuki growing. While Swift and Alto keep exchanging the title of the top-selling car every month, the overall sales of this brand is pretty appreciable.
Hyundai Motors India Ltd.
Following MSIL in terms of sales, Hyundai India landed in second place among the best selling cars in February 2021. With a sale of 47,223 units, Hyundai has landed in second place and has 5 cars in the top 25. Creta, Verna, NIOS i20 and Aura are there on the list of the top 25 selling cars in India in the month of February 2021. If we consider the overall sales of this Korean brand, 34.30% YoY growth which is quite good considering we just got over 2020!
Lord Tiago! As the fanboys address it. Tata Motors is growing really fast in India but it doesn’t seem like it will be able to surpass Maruti anytime soon. Well, Tata ended up having 3 cars in the top 25 and it is not at all difficult to guess which cars are there in the list. Nexon, Altroz and Tiago are representing Tata in the list of top 25!
Kia Motors India
With only 3 cars in their lineup, Kia Motors ended up having two of them in the top 25. Kia Sonet and Kia Seltos are doing absolutely great in their respective segments and have collectively shown a 16.24% YoY growth in cumulative sales. Kia Motors sold 16,302 in the last month and had a good month in terms of sales.
Toyota Kirloskar Motors
We guess Innova is the only one that is doing good in Toyota’s India lineup. Although Fortuner facelift was launched recently but couldn’t make it into the list of top 25 top-selling cars in India. Well, blame it on the price point or Toyota still not considering to give a sunroof. No matter what the reason might be, Innova was the only one that could make it into the top 25.
Honda Cars India
Just like Innova was the only one to enter the top 25 from Toyota’s lineup, Honda Amaze remained the only one from the Honda family to enter the top 25 selling cars in India in February 2021. With a sale of 4,939 units in the last month, Honda reported an overall decline in the YoY growth. If we compare this to the last year, we can surely make out that the decline is over 15% and that is a considerable percentage given its Honda which has been ruling the sedan market in India for years!
Mahindra & Mahindra
Surprised to see Bolero? Well, you shouldn’t be because Bolero is the only one that is there in the top 25 best-selling cars in India in February 2021. Mahindra sold a total of 4,843 cars in February 2021 which means 19.08% YoY growth. Mahindra is testing the upcoming XUV500 and the new Scorpio for a long so we expect them to launch it soon and gain a push in their sales.
Another brand in India is going great in terms of sales. While Maruti Suzuki Alto remains the top-selling hatch, Renault Kwid continues to be a tough competitor because of the beautiful design factor it carries. Leaving aside Kwid, we also have the Renault Duster which is doing great in terms of sales but unfortunately, it couldn’t enter the top 25 this time.
Morris Garages India
Hector and Hector Plus are doing good in the Indian market. talking about best-selling cars in February 2021, Hector entered the top 25. MG India ended up selling 3,662 units which means a 200% YoY growth! Isn’t that absolutely great? Why do you think Gloster and ZS EV is not there on the top-selling list? Do let us know in the comments section below.
