In many ways, satisfying the Indian customer is probably much more challenging than satisfying a customer in another market. The country has an obsession for fuel efficiency, when it comes to choosing automobiles (and rightly so, since about three-fourths of India’s crude oil requirement is imported). Extracting more mechanical energy for the car from every drop of fuel is a designer’s challenge. But it is vital for the consumer, the economy and the planet. At the same time, a fast growing, young and upwardly mobile, speed conscious India demands pick-up and instant response at the accelerator pedal. There is normally a trade-off between performance and fuel efficiency. A third requirement is space efficiency, as customers want the car to be compact to cope with congestion on roads and parking lots. Yet another requirement is of minimizing emissions. The Company’s next generation, K-series engines employ a plethora of state-of-theart technologies to deliver on all these fronts. Technologies deployed could be as sophisticated as fine atomization to achieve fuel droplet diameter in microns for optimised combustion. Or, they could be as practical as using engineering polymers instead of metal in certain

engine parts for weight reduction. Quite like packing more performance in a handheld smartphone as opposed to a traditional laptop. India’s road and dust conditions, the rains and driving safety considerations similarly pose design challenges unique to India. We believe, the purpose of technology is to serve mankind with products that meet the wants of society as closely as possible, are good for their long term health, happiness, safety and well-being, use minimum natural resources and can reach out to maximum number of consumers. The choice and evolution of technologies has to serve this purpose. And...

This is a pretty accurate representation of the most popular new cars in the country as imports are still relatively limited. However this month only 9,397 new local cars found a buyer in Pakistan, a scary -38% year-on-year and now bringing the year-to-date total into negative at -1% and 137,133 units. After being passed by the Suzuki Mehran last month, the Toyota Corolla reclaims the Pakistani models ranking top spot in October with 2,155 sales and 22.9% share, still below its 2012 year-to-date level though (25.8%). The Suzuki Mehran (aka Maruti 800) is down to #2 but at 2,052 units and 21.8% it is well above its 2012 share of 20.1%. Like last month, the Suzuki Cultus (aka 1st gen Swift) rounds up the podium with 987 sales and 10.5% vs. #5 and 8% year-to-date.

...SWOT- Analysis of Automotive STRENGTHS 1. Indian Automobile Industry is globally cost competitive: It is possible because of cheap labor availability and tax holidays provided by SEZs. 2. Government support: Indian government has also put Auto among its priorities 12 with 2012 target to become 10% of our GDP. 3. Indian Automotive Industry is following global accepted quality measures at a lower cost. This makes it a perfect destination for production-outsourcing of automobiles. 4. The availability large talent pool at cheap prices. 5. Availability of cheap R&D; IITs be deemed as centers of excellence for automobile research and access to latest technology. WEAKNESS The biggest and probably the only weakness of Indian automobile Industry is its slow growth in Research and Development most companies (barring TATA and M&M) do not have adequate spending on R&D in comparison to their turnover. Maruti for instance is completely dependent upon Suzuki for any new technology all of the successful cars sold by it were developed by Suzuki; Swift, A-Star (which replaced alto in other markets as New Alto), SX4, Ritz etc. This weakness will soon become history as Indian companies are catching fast in R&D and are showing strong signs of success e.g.: M&M Scorpio Hybrid, TATA Nano. Besides R&D the other weakness is political hostility (TATA Nano Singur plant) but is only a regional problem of less developed states or pro-communist states, states like Gujarat,......
