These cars in India failed to sell a single unit in April
April has been a tough month for some carmakers.
'Zero', that is the number of units of the Renault Fluence, Renault Koleos, Mahindra Quanto, Tata Motors Aria and Toyota Prado units that were sold in the month of April, according to data from SIAM. While these car models hit rock-bottom in terms of sales, there were other passenger cars which did not do much better either.
Take Chevrolet Trailblazer for instance; only 13 units of the car were sold in April. Fiat sold 17 units of the Aparth model, while only one unit of the Mahindra Rexton, Nissan Evalia and Nissan Teana each, were sold in the month. Renault sold six units of the Scala, Skoda sold three Yetis, Toyota sold only ten Land Cruisers, and Volkswagen sold five units of the Beetle.
April isn't the first month that car sales figures of these models were dismal. The Renault Fluence, for example, hasn't been doing well at all. The carmaker has been selling either one of no units of the Fluence in the last 6 months. In fact, from February to April 2016, Renault found no takers for the Fluence. In January, one unit was sold, while in December three units were sold.
Mahindra managed to sell only one unit of the Quanto in March, a sharp fall from the 123 units sold in February. Mahindra replaced the Quanto with the NuvoSport in April.
Nissan has managed to sell only six units of the Teana in the last six months. Out of the total tally, three were sold in December alone, and one each in January, February and April this year.
Tata Motors has sold only 12 units of the Aria over the last six months. This includes seven units sold in November, three in December 2015, and two units in March 2016.
Amongst the worse performers, the Toyota Prado was at the bottom of the pit with only three units being sold in the last six months.
