In May 2020, the automotive industry resumed its operations after nearly two months of shutting shops. As the sector is on a road to recovery, the sales numbers last month were expected to be below par and it did turn out to be the case.
Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL)’s Creta topped the sales charts by garnering a total of 3,212 units.
The Ertiga was the best-selling Maruti Suzuki vehicle in May 2020 as 2,353 units were dispatched. It must be noted that the MPV has been performing well in sales charts ever since it was launched back in late 2018.
Maruti Suzuki sold 2,215 units of the Dzire. The compact sedan received a facelift a few weeks ago with cosmetic changes and new features. It has been priced between Rs. 5.89 lakh for the entry-level LXi trim and it goes all the way up to Rs. 8.80 lakh for the range-topping ZXi+ AGS version (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
Mahindra Bolero was placed fourth with a total of 1,715
Maruti Suzuki Eeco minivan that stands in place of the Omni ended up fifth with 1,617 units.
Kia Seltos ended up as the sixth most sold model in the country as it posted 1,611 units.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Alto, Tata Altroz and Mahindra XUV300 in seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth positions respectively.
