The Indian automotive market is mostly focused on low budget, affordable cars with good fuel efficiency and space. The top 10 selling cars of India are a proof of this, with all 10 of them starting under Rs. 10 lakh. This does not mean that more expensive and luxurious vehicles don’t have a market here.
