December 2022 was not a productive month for sub 4m SUV makers as the segment dropped sales in both MoM and YoY
Sub 4m SUVs are currently all the rage among SUVs in India. Owing to its lower price point, this segment generally pushes more volume than compact SUVs. For December 2022, sub 4m SUVs crumbled in both YoY and MoM analysis. With a total of 46,635 units, the segment lost 1,207 units YoY to 47,842 units sold in December 2021.
A drop in sales was recorded at 2.52% YoY for this segment. MoM analysis didn’t prove beneficiary either. In fact, it is far worse than YoY analysis. With 56,775 units sold in November 2022, sub 4m SUV segment lost 10,140 units MoM. Sales decline was recorded at 17.85% MoM. Every single vehicle falling in this segment saw a decline in MoM analysis.
