Hyundai sales remained flat in comparison to the last month while Mahindra saw a percentage drop of 22.8. Followed by Honda and Toyota which saw drop of 23.6% and 6.41% respectively in sales.

With increased sales, Maruti is again in the position as the strongest manufacturer which has 52.48% share of the market, followed by Hyundai which has 16.30% market share.  


Dzire which sold respectable number last month (15894 to be precise) and was in the third spot, sold only about half (8797) units in the month of April. The simple reason for this could be the upcoming launch of the new Dzire which is launching on 17th of May.
