Top Selling Commercial Vehicles in H1 2022. We look at the top 10 selling SUVs and MUVs in the first half of 2022, along with their year-over-year growth.
In the first half of 2022, Utility Vehicles saw a mix of sales, as some models showed positive growth while the others showed negative results. While SUVs are gaining popularity, some models, such as the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Kia Seltos and the Sonet, have seen year-on-year sales decline. Let’s take a look at the top 10 best-selling commercial vehicles (UVs) in the first half of 2022.
The Tata Nexon SUV leads the UV sales chart for H1 2022, with sales of 82,770 units in the first six months. Compared to H1 2021, the Tata Nexon has seen 79 percent growth as Tata sold 46,247 units last year.
Second and third place are taken by the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Hyundai Creta. The automakers sold 68,992 units and 67,421 units respectively, while the Ertiga saw a 38 percent year-over-year increase.
Followed by the Tata Punch, Maruti Suzuki Ecco and the Hyundai Venue, which sold 60,932 units, 60,705 units and 57,882 units respectively in the first half of this year. The Maruti Suzuki Ecco and the Venue had marginal annual growth of 7 and 6 percent respectively.
The next four places are taken by the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Kia Seltos, Mahindra Bolero and the Kia Sonet. Since all four models are popular, year-over-year sales have surprisingly fallen, with the exception of the Bolero, which posted a 25 percent year-over-year growth.
The sales growth pattern is similar to the best-selling cars for the first half of 2022 and the best-selling PVs for H1 2022, but with the launch of updated models such as the new Maruti Suzuki Brezza and the Hyundai Venue, results for the second half could be better. Maruti Suzuki is also looking at much of the UV market with the recently unveiled Grand Vitara, which has received 13,000 bookings in its first six days.
