The Hyundai Creta is the second only vehicle on the list that isn't under the Maruti banner. Hyundai sold 10,973 Cretas in May 2022, a 46 percent (3,3446 units) higher over the same month the previous year. Hyundai sold a total of 7,527 vehicles in May 2021.

The Maruti Suzuki Eeco is currently India's most popular new van. Last month, Maruti Suzuki sold a total of 10,482 Eeco vans in India. This represents an increase of 856 percent (9,386 units) over the same period last year when Maruti sold only 1,096 Eeco vans.

Maruti Suzuki continues to dominate India's automotive market, and it's no surprise that the New Delhi-based automaker holds eight of the top ten slots in terms of best-selling vehicles. Vehicle sales are expected to go up as the country recovers from the pandemic. We are expecting better numbers in the coming months.
