In a statement given to DNA, Arvind Saxena, Director, Sales and Marketing, Hyundai, said that the new i10 was launched around August 2010 so that previous stock had to be exhausted on priority at that time resulting in fewer dispatches for some time. He added that i10 sales in the March quarter of fiscal 2011 were 46,014 units, 8-10% higher year on year.

The Tata Indica model slipped to number six in the last fiscal as compared to third position in the preceding fiscal. On the other hand, the Manza, Indigo and Marina sedans of Tata Motors climbed in ranking.
