The market has been growing at an average annual growth rate of 13.8%. There are a number of factors that have contributed to the growth of the India car sales market. These include the economic growth, the increasing urbanization, and the rising disposable income of Indians.

The poor road infrastructure makes it difficult to drive cars in some parts of the country. And the lack of financing options makes it difficult for people to get loans to buy cars.

Despite the challenges, the India car sales market is expected to continue to grow in the coming years. The economic growth and the increasing urbanization are expected to continue to drive demand for cars.
