The Indian passenger vehicle industry had its own challenges during financial year 2016-17, but was filled with excitement too. The annual report card of domestic sales has worked in favour of the likes of Tata Motors, Volkswagen India, Toyota Kirloskar Motor, Nissan Motor India, Renault India and Ford India as these companies managed to garner not only profits but also increased their respective market shares last financial year. Biggest of all which is not mentioned in the list above is the market leader Maruti Suzuki India. The country’s largest car manufacturer increased its market share from 46.79 per cent in FY 2015-16 to 47.38 per cent in FY 2016-17. While the gain is not much, it is not easy to sustain such a huge market share. Experts believe that Maruti Suzuki's new launches like Vitara Brezza and the Baleno along with the company’s aggressive marketing strategy helped it to grow further.
