Tata Motors continues to give Hyundai a run for money for the second spot in the India car market. Does the Indian brand overhaul the Korean auto giant?

The Indian passenger vehicle (PV) market is one of the most competitive automotive markets in the world. While Maruti Suzuki leads the segment with over 40% market share on a monthly basis, the focus shifts to the second spot. For a long time, Hyundai has been the clear winner for the second spot but in recent years, sales of Tata Motors cars have shown a significant jump.

This is due to a more diverse range of products with better overall quality and performance manufactured and launched by Tata Motors over the course of the last few years. So did the Indian brand take over the Korean car giant in the month of April when it comes to sales?
