Gallops Group : The Prominent Star of the Indian Automotive Retail World

by WAF Think Tank 

 

Back in 2004, the Indian Automotive Retail segment was still burgeoning and far from being an organised one. There were just a handful of Multi Outlet Dealership Groups.

Several Car makers like VW, Renault, Jeep, Citroën, MG, Kia, BMW, Audi were yet to set up shop.

Around the same time, a compact showroom of General Motors came up at Ahmedabad almost like a test and try experiment on SG Highway. This road was at the City’s outskirts during those days but later transformed to be the most happening Motown District, Retail & Real Estate Hub of Ahmedabad.

Is your electric car as eco-friendly as you thought?

Is your electric car as eco-friendly as you thought?

BERLIN, Nov 10 (Reuters) – Electric vehicles (EVs) are a powerful weapon in the world’s battle to beat global warming, yet their impact varies hugely from nation-to-nation and in some places they pollute more than gasoline models, data analysis shows.

In Europe, where sales are rising the fastest in the world, EVs in Poland and Kosovo actually generate more carbon emissions because grids are so coal-reliant, according to the data compiled by research consultancy Radiant Energy Group (REG).

October 2021 Car Sales – Snapshot

October 2021 Car Sales – Snapshot

Around 2,60,067 passenger cars were sold in the Indian market for October 2021. The sales dropped a massive 22.1 percent YoY. The shortage of semiconductors crippled the entire supply chain during the festive season and the drop in dispatches has hit both the OEMs and PV dealers hard.

 The demand for cars has been on the rise post-covid and the new model launches from the OEMs have kept the buzz on among the car buyers. The need for personal mobility and increasing economic activity ensured that the passenger vehicle sales bounce back strongly. Hence, Passenger Vehicle sales saw an upward trend in the first half of FY2021-22 and the sales shot up an impressive 57.7% when compared to the same period in H1 FY2020-21 (source). However; the shortage of semiconductor chips hit the supply scenario hard and the OEMs grappled with production constraints.

Segmentwise Car Sales for September 2021 – SUVs dominate yet again!

Segmentwise Car Sales for September 2021 – SUVs dominate yet again!

SUV sales have risen to an all-time high in the Indian market and almost all the OEMs have an offering in the SUV category. Both Compact and Mid SUV segments have grown considerably and are now easily outselling the hatchbacks/sedans. Almost all new launches in the past year have been in the segment and even the recent launches (Taigun, XUV700, Astor, etc) signifies on how the automakers are eyeing this segment.

 In Sep’21, Mid SUV segment emerged as the highest-selling segment and also recorded positive YoY growth. Mid SUVs hit the right spot in terms of the increasing demand among consumers and also have a profitable proposition for the automakers as it is a high-margin segment. The sudden influx of new models in the segment is the testimony of how all OEMs are rushing to make a presence here.

The need for personal mobility, strong financial growth in urban pockets, and better monsoons this year ensured good momentum in the market with improved buying sentiment. But the supply chain hurdles including the widespread chip shortage have been a big challenge right now for the industry.

Electrifying 2 Wheelers, 3W, and Logistics – Opportunities and Caveats

Electrifying 2 Wheelers, 3W, and Logistics – Opportunities and Caveats

By WAF Think Tank 

 

Two- and three-wheeler vehicles are likely to lead the transition to electric technology in India during the coming decade as the cost difference with combustion engine vehicles is narrowing and these vehicles can harness ‘battery swapping’ along with public charging infrastructure, according to the current industry predictions and so it was that the WAF Gurus Live Episode 22- powered by One Moto India was held virtually recently in which Gurus of the auto and mobility industry across discussed this very issue – Electrifying 2 Wheelers, 3W, and Logistics – Opportunities and Caveats.

 

As the number of EVs increases, there is a need to have a well-defined end-of-life (EOL) strategy for the batteries removed from EVs as part of collective efforts to ensure EV industry is truly green and eco-friendly. The end of life for a battery is exactly that – the moment where the battery reaches the end of its usefulness and/or lifespan and can no longer operate at anywhere close to the peak capacity that you once enjoyed. Recycling has been proposed as the EOL option for the EV batteries, but there are many issues that make recycling less justifiable, and this episode laid out those issues and discussed the alternate and appropriate EOL option.

Around 2,59,555 passenger cars were sold in the Indian market for August 2021. The sales shot up by 10.9 percent YoY and fell 11.8 percent MoM. The OEMs struggled to provide a steady supply of cars due to the dearth of semiconductor availability and impacted the overall volumes.
August marked the beginning of the festive season with Onam (biggest festival in Kerala) and Varamahakshmi (celebrated in parts of South India). The passenger cars sales saw a strong rebound in the past 3 months but was jolted by the unavailability of critical parts and hit the dispatches hard. Majority of OEMs recorded a decline in Aug’21 sales when compared to July’21. India’s biggest automaker Maruti Suzuki recorded a drop of over 30 percent in Aug’21 v/s July’21.

Maruti’s RC Bhargava, TVS Motor’s Venu Srinivasan call for ‘concrete action’ to revive auto sector

New Delhi, Aug 25 (PTI) Auto industry leaders, RC Bhargava of Maruti Suzuki India and Venu Srinivasan of TVS Motor, on Wednesday hit out at government officials for only paying lip service to the sector and not taking any “concrete action” to reverse the decline in growth over the past few years.

Speaking at industry body SIAM”s 61st Annual Convention, the veteran industry leaders wondered if contribution of the auto industry towards India”s growth is being recognised and lamented that cars seem to be still considered as luxury, that only the rich could afford.

“We have been going through a situation where this industry has been declining over a long period of time,” Bhargava, who is the Chairman of the country”s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India, said.

Use of AIs in the Automobile Industry

Use of AIs in the Automobile Industry

Lucy Rana, Renu Bala

S.S Rana & Co.  8 min read

 

Artificial intelligence has been consistently transforming various industries across the world. However, the Automobile Industry is one, which has arguably seen the most developments in its processes and practice, due to development in AI. AI, for quite some time now, is being applied in different parts of the automotive value chain. AI is being used in the designing, manufacturing, production and post-production process.

Every facet of this industry is being benefited by this transformative technology. Furthermore, the most debated aspect of AI i.e its use in ‘driver assistance’ is quickly gaining momentum in different parts of the world – with Tesla inarguably being one of the modern pioneers of this aspect of AI.

Level 1 and Level 2 autonomous vehicles along with parking assistance and cruise control are gaining popularity for their use of AIs. If the current pace is maintained, within the upcoming 8-10 years, AI technology would be present in a majority of automotive applications and by the end of 2030, it is expected that 95-98% of new vehicles would have AI to some extent[1].  Autonomous vehicles are those that use artificial intelligence in some or all areas of functioning.

Level 1 vehicles include driver assistance, Level 2 includes partial automated driving, Level 3 incorporates conditional automated driving while level 4 & 5 cars have high/full automated driving. In light of such developments, it is not in the realm of the impossible that in the coming years, vehicles may be known by their software providers as opposed to being known by their hardware manufacturers. Many popular software based companies such as Google, Amazon, Uber have stepped into the realm of autonomous vehicles. One can look forward to observe the fascinating solutions that AIs could introduce to traditional problems which could even transform the functioning of the entire automotive sector.

Around 2,94,330 passenger cars were sold in the Indian market for July 2021. The sales shot up by 48.9 percent YoY and 15.2 percent MoM. The OEMs were able to streamline supply before the festive season and the dispatches have happened accordingly.

 After the second wave of covid and lockdown across the country, there was a pent-up demand for passenger vehicles. The dealership stock levels were also low as many OEMs had plant maintenance shutdowns in parts of May’21. The production was ramped up significantly in July 2021 to serve the pent-up requirement and also prepare for the upcoming festivities. August marks the beginning of the festive season with Onam (biggest festival in Kerala) and Varamahakshmi (celebrated in parts of South India). The festivities will continue with Ganesha Chaturthi in Sep’21 and so on. This has led to adequate stocking levels across the channel.

Two Wheeler retails in May 2021 fell by almost 110% when compared to April 2021. The second wave of COVID-19 across India has been detrimental for the two-wheeler industry. While the two-wheeler market was among the first segments to grow in a post-COVID revival last year, the decline in sales this year is even more worrisome as the rural markets have been impacted as well.

 May 2021 sales cannot be compared on a year-on-year basis as there was not much movement in the auto industry, hence we have compared the statistics with April 2021.

 Nevertheless, we experienced growth in both Exports and Domestic sales. The exports grew by 3,06,378 units. and the Domestic sales grew by 1,26,348 units. Clearly, OEM’s placed their bets on exports in the month of May, rather than the domestic market which was mostly closed.
