In the west, Maharashtra recorded the highest sales of passenger vehicles with a total of 3, 54, 480 vehicles that were bought in a year. Trailing behind it in the west zone was Gujarat with sales of 2, 84,763 models from April 2018 to March 2019. In the west region, Goa ranked the lowest with sales of just 22,025 models in a year.

Up North, Uttar Pradesh clocked the maximum sales with 2, 99, 816 vehicles while Himachal Pradesh registered the least sales with 39,480 models. The city of Delhi alone recorded the sale of 1, 93,922. Down south, Kerala clocked the maximum sales with 2, 52,639. Meanwhile, Puducherry recorded 7,015 models, ranking at the bottom.
