December So Far Going Great For Car Sales!

According to auto finance companies and car marketers, December so far is turning out to be a “very good retail month” with upwards of 10% growth clocked already and better numbers expected in the last week of the month.

The numbers are better this year because of the higher discounts and lower interest rates, as the aggressive discounts and low interest rates are paying off.

Typically a large chunk of monthly sales are concentrated in the fourth week of every month and thereby December itself is no exception. But in the first three weeks of the last month of the year, the retail trends have been very good riding on promotional packages and low interest rates. As they have already represented 10% year on-year growth compared to last December.

Not only for mass market brands but also luxury badges which seem to have bounced back from the cess setback, recorded a positive growth. The increase in cess from September onwards affected consumer demand in the luxury segment and also the October sales. In November - December, the sales however got back to earlier estimates. Additionally influenced by the fact that consumers usually like to advance their purchases in anticipation of price hike from January, overall industry is witnessing an upward sales moment.

The other factor that has helped in rising sales is the auto finance rates, which have been coming down consistently over the past two years, have now hit rock bottom, being the lowest in over 10 years.

Last year due to demonetization, December wasn’t that good of the month for auto sales. But now we can see it making up to the losses industry struggled with.

You Soon Might Have To Remove Bull-bars From Your Car!

The government’s Ministry of Highways and Road Transport (MORTH) has just banned bull-bars on cars and SUVs running on roads of India. The ministry has sent out a letter to the transport commissioners of all the states of the country, urging them to act against those vehicles running bull-bars.

The ministry is urging to take the action as bull bars posed a danger to pedestrians as well as occupants, and were in violation of the Motor Vehicles Act. The Act prohibits owners from altering a motor vehicle in such a manner "that the particulars contained in the certificate of registration are at variance with those originally specified by the manufacturer".

The ministry has also indicated that bull-bars are illegal according to the Section 52 of the Motor Vehicles Act. It has also pointed out that using bull-bars on vehicles attracts penalties under the Section 190 and 191 of the Motor Vehicles Act.

If this law got through, the ones not following it will attract a fine of Rs 1,000 for the first offence and Rs 2,000 subsequently. Thereby it's advisable that if you have a car or SUV equipped with a bull-bar/bull-guard, it is advisable that you get it removed at the earliest. Bull-bars/bull-guards may protect your vehicle’s bumpers from minor scrapes but they have multiple disadvantages, some of them very dangerous to your personal safety, and safety of fellow road users like cyclists, two wheeler riders and pedestrians.

Yes, you heard right Delhi government is to pay 100% hospital bills of accident victims. As according to Delhi government, approximately 15,000 to 20,000 people meet with or are affected by accidents in Delhi every year which results in deaths of as many as 1600 people.

• It includes three kind of accidents – road accidents, fire as well as acid attacks!
• The best clause is that there is no upper limit to this ordinance. Which means that no matter how   much your bill turns out to be – it will be borne by the Delhi government.

Old and Defunct Vehicles to Be Auctioned Off!

imagre ref - http://www.team-bhp.com  

In a joint drive with the municipal corporations, Delhi government’s transport department will soon auction the junked cars which have remained parked for years at one place. The drive will start from south Delhi and later all areas of the city will be targeted. The drives will be carried out by a joint team of the personnel and the respective civic body.

 To target the same and in addition to identify the diesel/petrol vehicles which have crossed their 10/15 years on road run, and are not allowed on the city roads anymore, government is now developing a software through National Informatics Centre (NIC) using which finding out whether a diesel-run vehicle is 10 years old or a petrol-run vehicle is 15-year-old will become easy and quick.

Government is keen to take on the particular initiative as in Delhi, there are thousands of such junked vehicles lying around in the city that are not fit to be driven any more but yet is occupying premium parking space. Many of them don’t even have tyres and are supported by bricks. They particularly stand still just to occupy the parking space; sometimes people intentionally acquire them just to do the same. But now the time for such vehicles has come to an end, now the functional parking space will only be available for the vehicles which are functional.

The department is also in the process of developing a mobile application through which common people will be able to help government, by clicking pictures of junked vehicles and share them along with the GPS location. This will improve the output of the drive taken for the cause, as this will help government to identify such vehicles and take action conveniently. Along with this to discourage misuse of prime space, transport department’s draft parking policy prescribe heavy parking charges for junked vehicles parked on streets.

Shriram Automall India Limited(SAMIL), while playing its part in the national development will come forward and help government to dispose scrap and junk vehicles through its most innovative and transparent bidding platforms.

So, let’s come together and help government in this initiative of making India, technologically advance and clean.

As now, first-time car buyers in the country (India) are moving beyond entry level vehicles, choosing more premium options instead, showcasing upward consumer mobility that’s driving sales of feature-rich and pricier models.

While only one out of three first-time buyers used to purchase premium models five years ago, now one of two such buyers goes for these models, indicating the manufacturer’s ability to attract more customers to its premium models.

In the last three years number of first-time buyers for Maruti Suzuki Dzire has increased to 46% from 28%. Similarly, those for the Hyundai Xcent have risen to 55% against 40%. Even for the newly launched Hyundai Verna, priced at Rs 8lakh, the number of first-time buyers has almost doubled to 35%, as compared with 18% recorded for the earlier edition of the vehicle.

At Tata Motors, where executives were used to serving customers about 38-40 years only, witnessed first time buyers positioning the Zest above the Indigo. Majorly below-30 buyers accounted for more than a fifth of the car’s sales.

India is a young economy, with high disposable incomes, this uptick sales record driven by first time buyers shows that customers want their first vehicle to be feature-rich,

Affordability is also one of the reasons pushing sales of premium cars among young consumers and first time buyers, as household income of families buying (the third-generation) Dzire has jumped 22% (to Rs 78,000 from Rs 59,000) a month. Similar trend was witnessed at Hyundai, where the average income of the Verna buyer has increased by 40% to `7-10lakh. At Tata Motors, the average income of buyers has doubled in the last few years.

Hence, it can be said that factors such as vehicle prices and fuel efficiency are no longer primary determinants of purchasing decisions. Rather vehicle style/looks, followed by brand image, features, mileage has emerged as the primary consideration among consumers who opt for the premium car versions.

Driven by desire, consumers willing to acquire a premium car or a luxury one without hampering their pockets have showcased their keen interest in the used premium/luxury cars.

Light Commercial Vehicles Surging Double Digit Growth in India

After a decline in the past three years, the light commercial vehicle segment (LCV), consisting of the sub 3.5 tone vehicles, has resumed its strong growth. The factors that aided the demand for the segment were growth in replacement demand, improved financing and recovery in rural demand.

Also, through increased thrust on infrastructure and rural sectors in the recent Budget, potential implementation of fleet modernization or Scrappage program and higher demand from consumption-driven sectors, especially for LCVs and intermediate commercial vehicles (ICVs), commercial vehicles have found their momentum back.

Further investments in e-commerce segment are driving demand for last mile transportation requirements and accordingly light commercial vehicles. These factors along with the favorable monsoon and a better crop harvest have supported demand recovery from the rural areas as well, which is a fairly sizeable market for small trucks. The SCV segment is expected to grow in the range of 14-16 per cent in volume terms in the current fiscal.

During April-October 2017 period, total LCV sales grew by 19% at 218,602 units as compared to 183,611 units in April-October 2016. In the same, mini-trucks (Tata Ace segment) grew by 22% at 80,150 units (65,700 units), while pick-ups (above 1-tonne payload vehicles) reported a growth of 17% at 138,452 units (117,911 units).

Ban on BS-IV Vehicle Registrations beyond June 2020

As a major step to curb vehicular pollution, the government of India decided that the country will leapfrog directly from BS-IV emission norms for petrol and diesel to BS-VI standards from April 1, 2020. For implementation of the same, government has come out with a draft notification to amend Central Motor Vehicles Rules to prevent registration of BS-IV compliant automobiles built before April 1, 2020 beyond June 30, 2020.

The decision to advance the date by four years to April 1, 2020 for implementation of BS VI (equivalent to Euro VI norms followed globally) was taken at an inter- ministerial meeting for supply of cleaner auto fuel, by altogether skipping the Euro V grade norms. The decision was taken while keeping in mind the most debatable rising level of pollution in the country.

The notification said the rules will be called the Central Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and shall come into force on the date of their final publication in the Official Gazette. The amendment in the rules will be done in exercise of the powers conferred by section 110 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.

The notification further says: new motor vehicles of categories M & N, conforming to Emission Standard BS-IV, manufactured before April 1, 2020 and sold in the form of drive away chassis, shall not be registered after September 30, 2020.

Vehicles having at least four wheels and used for the carriage of passengers fall under category M while power- driven vehicles having at least four wheels and used for the carriage of goods fall under category N.

Government while keeping in mind the pollution state in the country as well as the pressure oil refineries and auto manufacturers are witnessing to meet the deadlines are taking all the essential and efficient steps making India cleaner and greener country.
