The last brand in the top 25 list is Toyota with the Innova Crysta recording year-on-year growth of 5%.

It is interesting to note that all non-Maruti models in the top 10 are SUVs! Although Maruti still has 11 models in the Top 25
Tata has recorded 3 models in the top 25 and averaged 11,433 units per model, which is more than Hyundai.
Hyundai, on the other hand, even though it has 4 models on the list, averages 10,162 units per model.
It is refreshing to see new models such as the Mahindra XUV700 and the Kia Carens making an appearance on the list. While the XUV700 sits on a huge backlog of orders, it delivered 6,010 units in August 2022.
