Automotive sales in India in 2022 increased 12% to 20.8 million units, according to data compiled by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers. Although the total remained shy of sales in pre-pandemic 2019, passenger car sales for 2022 set a new record.
The total for calendar year 2022 was up from 18.5 million in 2021, according to a society news release in January. The organization, known as Siam, represents all major vehicle and vehicular engine manufacturers in India. Domestic automotive sales – including passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, three-wheelers and two-wheelers – have still not quite rebounded to the last full pre-pandemic year of 2019, when total sales reached 23.1 million.
