india’s passenger vehicle industry suffered its worst sales performance in nearly 19 years in July as a slowing economy, higher ownership costs and floods in some states deterred buyers. Sales fell 31% to 200,790 vehicles last month from 290,931 units a year earlier, showed data released on Tuesday by the SIAM. It was the worst sales performance since a 35% decline in December 2000.

In July, passenger car sales plunged 36% to 122,956 units, while utility vehicles recorded a 15% drop to 67,070 units. Vans suffered a 46% decline to 10,804 units. Industry body Siam releases wholesales, or factory dispatches, of automobiles, and not retail sales. The drop in sales came despite the recent introduction of models such as Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd’s XUV300, hyundai Motor india Ltd’s Venue and MG Motor india Ltd’s Hector models. The new models have seen robust demand despite a weakness in the overall market.



Maruti Suzuki india Ltd reduced wholesales of its Vitara Brezza compact sport utility vehicle because of weak demand, emerging competition and its recently announced plans to phase out diesel vehicles from next April. hyundai and Mahindra and Mahindra reported 10% and 15% decline in sales, respectively in July.
