Q4 2022 - Overall Quarterly Car Sales Figures - QoQ Change

  • The Toyota Hyryder was the biggest QoQ gainer with more than 800% improvement. Although, most of the gain was because the car’s production scaled up only in the Q4 2022.
  • Toyota Hyryder was followed by its cousin from Maruti Suzuki, the Grand Vitara, also a C-segment SUV, which reported a QoQ growth of 291%. Here too, the launch timeline is skewing the QoQ changes.

    • Volkswagen Taigun (+59%)
    • MG Astor (+33.5%)

    • Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (+29%)
    • Honda Amaze (+26%)
    • Skoda Slavia (+18.5%)
    • Maruti Suzuki Dzire (+10%)
  • On the other side of the coin, the B2-segment hatchback from Honda, Jazz, reported the worst decline in QoQ comparison. Its sales dropped by 84% in Q4 of 2022 compared to Q3 of 2022.
  • The other notable poor performers were Toyota Innova (-70%), S-Presso (-69%), Celerio (-56.5%) and Toyota Fortuner (-34%).
  • The other notable losers in the QoQ comparison analysis for the Q4 2022 are:
