Indian new vehicles sales

Indian new vehicles sales up in double-digit in November fueled by new models. The market kept momentum with the 13th year-on-year increase in a string thanks to the positive economic environment and dynamic offer.

Economic Outlook

India’s economy lost a bit of momentum in the April to June quarter, although the country continues to outshine the majority of its regional peers. The country is in a better position to withstand China’s slowdown than many other Asian economies and latest data suggest that growth was robust in recent months.

The services PMI picked up in October while industrial production growth edged down from August’s multi-year high in September. However, the key for India to sustain robust growth rates going forward lies in enacting meaningful economic reforms, which have become stalled in Parliament.

In a setback to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reform agenda, his party suffered a profound defeat in the regional Bihar elections, the results of which were announced on 8 November. The loss will likely embolden Modi’s opponents and make it more difficult to pass reforms through the Upper House, whose seats are mainly determined by state legislatures and where Modi’s party currently lacks a majority.

Market Outlook

Indian new vehicles sales are booming this year pushed up by positive economic environment with consumers stimulated by several new vehicles launched by all major manufacturers, after several years of stable demand with a relatively low choise opportunities.

In November the domestic sales scored the 13th year-on-year growth month in a series with an increase below the astonishing score of October while anyhow in double-digit.
