Maruti Suzuki is riding high in the brisk Utility Vehicle (UV) market. With 2,29,101 units and a 21.60 percent market share in FY2021, the UV leader has maintained its position in the April-October 2021 timeframe. To maintain its lead over Hyundai Motor India, the business sold 1,62,160 units, a 58 percent increase year on year (YoY).
The top ten models contribute 66% of sector sales. Models from Maruti, Hyundai, Kia, Mahindra, Tata, and Toyota are on the list. Maruti accounted for 21% of the total 7,65,803 SUVs and MPVs sold in India in the first seven months of FY2022, followed by Hyundai with 1,41,238 vehicles and an 18.83% market share.
A brief look at the top ten best selling SUVs and MPVs from April to October 2021 indicates that Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai Motor India, Kia India, and Mahindra each have two models, while Tata Motors and Toyota Kirloskar Motor each have one. Maruti Suzuki is just 1,197 units ahead of Hyundai in this ranking, with 1,27,363 units sold between the Ertiga and Vitara Brezza. Kia is a long way behind with 1,02,223 vehicles.
The Hyundai Creta is India's best-selling SUV, having sold 70,176 units between April and October 2021. This includes 35,768 petrol and 34,408 diesel models. The Maruti Ertiga and the Vitara Brezza, on the other hand, are hot on the leader's tail.
The Ertiga, with 65,174 units, is just 5,002 units behind the Creta, while its brother, the Vitara Brezza, with 62,189 units, is 7,987 units behind. What is commendable is that Maruti does not have diesel power, and the combination of petrol and CNG is giving the firm a fresh charge. The Maruti Ertiga was sold in 38,391 petrol and 26,783 CNG versions.
The other Hyundai on this list is the Venue, which is in sixth position with 55,990 units, with petrol outnumbering diesel (42,771) by a wide margin (13,219). The Tata Nexon comes in fourth place, with an estimated 61,010 units.
Meanwhile, Kia, which has a 32.12 percent share of the SUV and MPV market alongside Korean brother Hyundai, has two models in the Top 10: the Seltos (56,585) at No. 5 and the Sonet (45,638) at No. 7. The Mahindra Bolero (33,242) and the Mahindra XUV300 (No. 10) are ranked eighth and tenth, respectively (28,794).
