Call it Hyundai Eon effect or bad phase for Maruti Suzuki, but the sales growth of Maruti cars is at almost all time low in many years in the month of October 2011. The Hyundai Eon small car on the other hand, has manages to clock decent sales figure of selling 6315 units in the month of October besides the fact that it was launched close to middle of October (13th Oct to be precise). However, Hyundai has announced during the launch that they plan to sell about 1 lakh units of Eon per year, which roughly makes it 8000 units a month, which looks pretty achievable for Eon. The downside however for Hyundai itself is the declining sales of Hyundai Santro which is an older car in terms of design – check out Hyundai Eon Vs Hyundai Santro. However, the Eon has not hurt too much into the sales of Alto as yet, but the situation will become more clear in following months as people start getting user feedback, this is so because word of mouth promotion works very well in case of Indian car buyers, so once there are enough customers to share their first hand experience, the sales may increase in favour of Eon.
