Almost every time you read newspaper or browse the internet, the voice of diesel car sales jumping is heard. Car enthusiasts have turned towards the diesel fuel in order to cut fuel expenses which are going up due to frequent rise in petrol prices. With flocks of buyers wanting diesel cars, the prices of similar vehicles have gone up and have attracted more excise duty from the government.
Among all these hustles going on, the petrol car lovers can relax as the prices have gone down and they are getting host of freebees with their deal. Seeing a dip in petrol car sales, car manufacturers are trying every possible way to lure car enthusiasts of the country and offering discounts and goodies is the best way to appeal to Indian customers. Dealers of various auto companies like Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Chevrolet, Ford, etc are offering hefty discounts on their petrol product range across the country.
Small car sales had registered only 0.68 per cent of growth in April the lowest in last ten years as per the data released by SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers). Hatchbacks like Tata Nano, Maruti 800, Chevrolet Spark, Maruti Alto, A-Star and WagonR showed concerning decline in their sales.
Speaking of the figures, Tata was able to sell 8,028 units of its Nano approximately 2,000 units short of what it sold last year while Chevy Spark witnessed the highest dip in yearly sales from 3,887 units in April to mere 811 units this season. The prime reason eyed for the fall in sales of these cars is the absence of diesel variant among them. This can be better understood with Maruti Swift (available in diesel variant also) which became the best seller of the company toppling its volume puller cousin Alto (offered only in petrol version).
There are lots of discounts pouring in for petrol car buyers for example VW Polo is offered with Rs 50,000 cash discount and Rs 60,000 of free insurance while Nissan Micra offers Rs 30,000 of cash concession whereas Rs 6,000 of corporate discount. Hyundai i10 is also not behind and is offered with cash discount of Rs 15,000 along with an exchange bonus of Rs 15,000. Its cousin, Hyundai Eon is available with an exchange bonus of Rs 10,000 and Rs 4,000 for extension of warranty period.
Ford is offering Rs 20,000 of free insurance and Rs 5,000 of corporate discount on its Figo while Toyota is giving a cash discount of Rs 20,000 and exchange bonus of Rs 2,500 for its Toyota Etios and Liva models. Apart from these there are various other goodies offered by the dealers at different dealership outlets.
