The coronavirus pandemic disrupted the entire automobile industry by causing manufacturing operations to be shut down during the nationwide lockdown.
While this led to zero car sales in April, May saw the resumption of manufacturing by adhering to the government norms. Car sales, however, remained subdued due to the overall scenario across the nation.
As far as the sub-4m SUV segment is concerned, it witnessed a cumulative sales of a mere 4,025 units in May 2020.
Mahindra’s XUV300 climbed up a few spots as it was the best-selling sub-4m SUV in May. It overtook the Hyundai Venue by 15 units to become the table-topper with a market share of over 31 per cent.
Following the Mahindra XUV300 closely was the Hyundai Venue. With over 1,200 units shipped, it was the only SUV after the XUV300 to cross the 1,000 units mark.
Although Tata could only ship 600-odd units of the Nexon, the SUV bettered its year-on-year market share by 0.68 per cent.
