Rise in tourism industry in the country is directly upsurging the need for premium off-roading vehicles for better ease in traveling, which will further bolster the India SUV market in the upcoming years.

When COVID-19 began to cause lockdowns across the globe, there was a substantial slowdown in automobile sales.The COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the economic condition of India.

Due to the effect of lockdown and restrictions in April 2020, the automobile sector saw minimal SUV sales.But, gradually the SUV segment has shown strength, with a growth rate of around 50% in 2022.

Also, the new model launches are experiencing robust booking, indicating a healthy and good demand pipeline.
Rising introduction of new SUV models with ADAS Technology
Major Indian automakers like Mahindra & Mahindra Limited, Hyundai Motors Company, and others have launched the models like Mahindra XUV 700, MG Astor, MG Gloster, Hyundai Tucson, and others that are incorporated with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) technology to improve the road safety.ADAS technology includes features like speed control, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, maintaining a safe distance, lane departure warning/prevention, lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking, automatic parking assist, high-beam assist, blind-spot detection, and rear cross-traffic alert, which also thereby preventing the road accidents and minimizing the repercussions of human error.

In conclusion, the models are incorporated with ADAS technology, which is definitely capturing more customers, hence aiding the country’s market growth.
Ongoing Product Launches
Driven by connectivity services, shared mobility, and feature updates, manufacturers are increasingly collaborating and developing new products to remain competitive in the market by offering extra features and technologies.For example, major manufacturers are releasing models such as the Maruti S-Cross is expected to be launched in September 2022, BYD Atto 3 in October 2022, Jeep Grand Cherokee in November 2022, and others.

These SUVs offer advantages such as improved comfort and convenience, fuel efficiency, a decent interior and appearance, and so on. As a result, the country’s SUV industry is seeing increased sales and demand due to the quick developments in features and consistent product launches.
Electrification of SUVs
With a growing number of electric SUV models, SUVs are electrifying quicker than in prior years.Globally, in 2021, around 55% of the electric car models on the market were SUVs, up from 45% two years ago, which clearly indicates that the electrification ratio of SUVs matches that of non-SUV cars.

Similarly, in India, more and more people are opting for electric cars due to the rapid rise in fuel prices i.E-SUVs have various advantages over conventional vehicles, including greater vehicle dynamics, lower fuel consumption, and low-noise electric driving.

Factors such as increased use of fuel-efficient mobility solutions and lower battery costs per KWH are predicted to boost the demand for e-SUV in the country, which is also driving the SUV market growth in the country.
Due to their output efficiency and lightweight, OEMs rely on electrical components, making vehicle electrification a fuel-efficient alternative.Furthermore, compared to gasoline-powered cars, hybrid and electric vehicles are more fuel-efficient modes of transportation.

Moreover, car emissions are an important element since hazardous greenhouse gases are emitted, raising environmental and health problems.As a result, governments worldwide are enacting automobile emission standards to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and maintain environmental balance.

Manufacturers must follow these requirements in order to keep emissions within control.The Government of India established the BS6 emission standard in April 2020 to restrict the discharge of air pollutants from cars.

Furthermore, electrification is the next phase, with most automakers focusing on hybrid-powered vehicle development to meet the rapidly changing needs of end users and policymakers to meet green mobility criteria. For example, Groupe Renault aims to attain 35% of sales from hybrid models in 2021 and 30% from completely electric vehicles by 2025. As a result, all these factors will increase the demand for e-SUVs in the near future.
