Indian auto industry in top gear despite global gloom

Chennai, Dec 25 (IANS) Even as global auto majors went into reverse gear in 2009, the Indian industry largely bucked the trend, launching new models for the domestic market and registering significant growth in exports.

The year saw the commercial rollout of the world's cheapest car, Tata Nano, as also some expensive models like the Rs.37.5-million (about $750,000) Phantom and the Rs.25-million ($250,000) Ghost (both from Rolls Royce), apart from Volkswagen's famed Beetle, priced at Rs.2 million ($40,000).

During the year, the overall car market grew around 15 percent over 2008, and a similar pattern is expected in 2010, experts maintain.

According to Neeraj Garg, Volkswagen India group sales director: 'Car manufacturers are betting on hatchbacks in the B+ segment. We expect the segment to constitute nearly 75 percent of volumes in the coming years.'

According to Garg, the B+ segment is expected to grow 30 percent by virtue of new launches from Nissan (unnamed model), Ford (Figo), Volkswagen (Polo), and General Motors (Beat).

Spark, the compact car from General Motors, will now come in an electric version, thanks to a tie-up with Bangalore's Reva Electric Car Co.

'We expect the electric Spark to be launched next November. We will provide the battery kit and use GM's dealer network to distribute our models,' said Reva co-founder and deputy chairman Chetan Maini.

Apart from Nano and the high-end Rolls Royce models, 2009 saw a slew of other launches.

Japan's Honda launched the Jazz, the homegrown Mahindra and Mahindra unveiled its multi-purpose Xylo, Italy's Fiat drove in its hatchback Grande Punto, and Tata Motors introduced Jaguar and Land Rover, the iconic British brands it acquired last year.

Similarly, Maruti Suzuki debuted its Ritz, South Korea's Hyundai launched the diesel i20, the Czech Republic's Skoda showcased the new Laura while Japan's Toyota rolled out the latest version of sports utility vehicle Land Cruiser.

Ernst and Young has predicted the Indian passenger car market to grow at 12 percent annually over the next five years to touch 3.75 million units by 2014 from 1.89 million units at present.

'The industry's turnover is estimated to touch $155 billion by 2016,' said analysts with Ernst and Young, adding this would make the Indian auto industry the seventh largest in the world, and the third largest by 2030, behind China and the US.

The government's Automotive Mission Plan also envisages India emerging as the world's seventh largest carmaker by 2016, contributing over 10 percent to the country's $1.2-trillion economy from under five percent at present.

India is also expected to consolidate its position as an automobile hub, with 2.75 million units to be sold overseas and about a million units in the domestic market.

'India and China are the only markets that have remained profitable,' said Pawan Goenka, president of the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), an industry lobby for the auto sector in India.

With the Indian auto industry growing at 15-25 percent annually for the past five years, spurred by demand from the country's large middle class with growing disposable incomes, some companies in the country like Maruti Suzuki have even outgrown their parents.

The auto industry feels the government's initiatives -- like more funds for roads and highways with special focus on rural infrastructure -- would also go a long way in helping the industry.

The two-wheeler industry too logged good growth with motorcycles and gearless scooters leading the way.

While Mahindra and Mahindra debuted with its two-wheeler during the year after it bought the Kinetic group's business, the Pune-based Bajaj Auto announced its decision to exit the scooters business that had become a household name with the 'Hamara Bajaj' campaign.

Bajaj also lost a patent case against TVS Motor, which then launched a few models to fill in gaps in product portfolio. 'We would like to be present in each segment,' said TVS marketing president H.S. Goindi.

Players in the commercial vehicles segment, which was severely hit by the recession, are similarly upbeat.

'With the economy reviving and growth predicted at over 7 percent, commercial vehicle segment can expect good times ahead,' said Ashok Leyland chief operating officer Vinod Dasari.

Commercial vehicle manufacturers sold more buses thanks to the funds provided under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission (JNURM). But the Hero group exited the commercial vehicle joint venture with Daimler, citing tough market conditions.

Industry insiders maintain that next year will see the entry of Daimler with its light commercial vehicle Fuso Canter. The German company is expected to commission its Indian plant in 2012. General Motors also has a pact with China's Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp to make light commercial vehicles in India by 2011.

-Bus-making venture between Tata Motors and Brazil's Marcopolo goes on stream at Dharwad, Karnataka

First mobile version of Firefox 'days' away from launch

The first mobile version of Firefox is “days away” from launch on the Nokia N900 phone, according to reports.
The popular browser, which accounts for 24.7 per cent of the global browser market – according to Net Applications’ December figures - is almost ready to make its debut on mobile.

"At the end of the working day you can walk away from your computer and keep on going on your phone," Mr Sullivan told the BBC.

"It encrypts all of the information and sends it back through the cloud between your desktop and mobile."

If all goes to plan, before the end of the year he hopes N900 users will be able to download Firefox in Nokia’s Ovi store.

Mozilla, the parent company of Firefox, is also working on versions for Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows respective operating systems.

Opera is the most popular mobile browser at the moment – as it is well optimised for the platform and comes pre-programmed into many mobile handsets
