India has 600 million young people – and they’re set to change our world | Ian Jack
This new generation is motivated: it combines the cultural values of the traditional Asian family with the life goals of the American teenagerAn illuminating and sometimes alarming book, Dreamers: How Young Indians Are Changing the World, is published this month. About 600 million people, more than half India’s population, are under 25 years old; no country has more young people.“No matter how poorly placed they find themselves now,” writes the book’s author, Delhi journalist Snigdha Poonam, “they make up the world’s largest ever cohort of like-minded young people, and they see absolutely no reason why the world shouldn’t run by their rules.” The effect, Poonam says, will be to “change our world in ways we can’t yet imagine”.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Sleet launched at Rs 2.12 lakh
Royal Enfield has launched the Himalayan Sleet limited edition with the ‘Explorer’ kit at an introductory price of Rs 2.12 lakh (on-road, Chennai). The motorcycle is limited to 500 units and will only be sold online. Registrations are open online from January 12-30, after which the sale will go live on January 30. The first 500 registered users who pay the booking amount of Rs 5,000 on January 30 will be able to purchase the motorcycle. The new colour scheme features an angular camouflage pattern on matte-grey panels and looks to be inspired from the rocky snow-covered Himalayan terrain. The new Himalayan Sleet will come pre-fitted with the Explorer kit which consists of aluminium panniers, pannier-mounting rails and aluminium handlebar with a cross brace. The Explorer kit will go on sale after January 30, which is when Royal Enfield will announce its prices.  The company has also recently updated its Himalayan to correct the previous bike’s reputation for low reliability. The biggest change on the updated Himalayan is that it now uses a fuel-injection system instead of a carburettor; the company has done this in order to meet BS-IV norms. The bike has also undergone other small changes, like the addition of a small metal guard on the oil cooler and matte-black powder coating for the fuel tank cap, and bar-end weights and luggage mounts below the rear seat. Royal Enfield had re-introduced the updated Himalayan last year for Rs 1.65 lakh, which has now been revised to Rs 1.67 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). With a price of Rs 2.12 lakh (on-road, Chennai), the Sleet is priced at Rs 28,000 higher than the standard Himalayan which costs Rs 1.84 lakh (on-road, Chennai).

SIAM: PV sales to end 2018 fiscal with flat growth rate
The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers has forecasted growth in passenger vehicle sales at 9 percent in the fiscal year ending March 2018, flat from the 9.2 percent growth witnessed in 2017 fiscal. However, apex automotive industry body sees growth at the higher end of the earlier projected 7-9 percent due to the fading demonetisation effect and improvement in investment outlook in the coming future, along with improvement in demand as buyers put uncertainty caused due to GST behind them. Additionally, SIAM sees reduction in interest rates on car loans – from 11.25 percent in October 2016 to 10.75 percent, at present – as a boost for the PV segment. So far, this year the auto industry has witnessed an upbeat growth in passenger vehicle sales. Volumes stood at 2.4 million units in April-December 2017 – up 8 percent, year-on-year. UVs continue to drive growth Utility vehicles are set to lead the passenger vehicle growth charge, this fiscal, just like the previous year. SIAM projects UVs to grow at 20 percent and passenger cars at 7 percent. According to Puneet Anand, head of marketing, Hyundai Motors India, most car buyers will continue to favor UVs, as the aggressive segmentation of the UV category has improved affordability. “After various segmentation, the price difference between UVs, traditional sedans and hatchbacks has narrowed, making them more affordable,” said Anand. “Now customers with a budget from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 30 lakh and more have the option of choosing an SUV; which was not the case, earlier.” Indian automakers have responded to the rising preference for SUVs among consumers by ramping up their model line-up with such vehicles; and meeting with considerable success. Models like the Brezza, Creta, EcoSport and Duster have already posted upbeat volumes and have taken over traditional ladder-on-frame UVs, in terms of sales. For instance, Maruti Suzuki has outpaced the country’s UV major, Mahindra & Mahindra, to become India’s largest UV maker. Riding the back of its most popular SUV – the Vitara Brezza – Maruti grabbed 28.60 percent of the UV market share in April-December 2017, as against 25.76 percent in the previous year. In the same timeframe, market share of Mahindra dropped to 25.01 percent from 28.76 percent. [...]
