Top 10 Selling Cars Of March 2020 - COVID-19 Affects Sales figures

Just as the Indian Automotive industry was getting out of the slowdown and dealing with the BS4 stocks, India got hit by the COVID-19 pandemic storm. This bought the industry to a complete stop, all the production and dealerships were halted. So obviously these two factors meant the sales would go south, and that is what the numbers tell. But let’s just take a look at the Top 10 cars sold in March 2020.

Top 10 Selling Cars Of March 2020 - COVID-19 Affects Sales figures

The story remains kind of the same as previous months, seven Maruti Suzuki, two Hyundai, and Kia. Japanese and Koreans seem to overshadow all other manufacturers. Maruti Suzuki Baleno grabbed the no. 1 positions with 11,406 units, last year it sold 17,262 units, the sales are down by 34%. Following the Baleno comes to the little hatchback Maruti Suzuki Alto with 10,829 units, 36% less than last year. The tallboy WagonR came in the third position with 9,151 units facing a 43% YoY decline. Swift also faced a decline of 40% with 8,575 units.

Take your time to appreciate the regular new entrant in these top 10 lists. Coming in hot at position 5th, with 7,466 units. It has become the best selling SUV of this year, consecutive for three months. Fun fact – Kia Seltos alone outsold all Toyota cars, along with Tata, Honda, and Ford cars. But new Hyundai Creta is just behind the Seltos with 6,706 units, and we think it’s going to be a neck to neck competition when the industry comes back to business.

7th position is taken by Hyundai Venue, with respectable 6,127 units, it stays ahead of the Brezza again. 8th position is taken by a Van, no not the costly MUVs, just the bare and bones Van – Maruti Suzuki Eeco with 5,966 units, it also faced a 40% YoY decline. Brezza takes the 9th position with 5,513 with a huge 61% YoY decline, amongst other factors Brezza now comes only in petrol. Compact sedan King has kind of lost the charm over previous months, Maruti Suzuki Dzire barely makes it to 10th position (It was no. 1 in January 2020).

We hope that the numbers will climb up in the upcoming months, it will take some time for the industry to get back to the same position. But there are various new launches around the corner and will come as soon as the Covid-19 pandemic gets over.
