The Indian Automobile Market in Kolkata has grown significantly in the last few years but the growth rate is less as compared to the other metropolitan cities of the country like Mumbai and Delhi.

With new roads being constructed in Kolkata, the demand for cars has risen. Thus, today Kolkata has showrooms of all the major car companies. Kolkata takes pride in the fact that one of the oldest automobile industries in the country - Hindustan Motors Limited was established in Kolkata in 1942 under the flagship of Birla Group of Companies in Uttarpara. The company came up with its first product, an Ambassador car in 1948. Many cars have been produced ever since then in the Uttarpara Plant. The Company boasts of contributing a lot to the Indian Automobile Market for the past 5 decades. More or less all the latest car models - Lancer Cedia, Lancer Select, Mitsubishi Lancer, and Mitsubishi Pajero - can now be found in Kolkata.

Cars like BMW and Mercedes can often be seen on the streets of Kolkata which in itself is an index of the improvement in the demand for luxury cars but it is still behind the other metropolitan cities especially - Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore.

However, one cannot overlook the growing number of automobiles in Kolkata with most major car dealers setting up dealerships in the city. This is mainly due to the fact that there has been a major lifestyle shift in Kolkata, with its residents becoming more and more willing to spend their money on luxury items, including high-end cars. The growth of the Indian Automobile Market in Kolkata has also taken place due to the fact that many banks and financial institutions have tied-up with car companies to make cars more affordable for customers, by means of loans.

Indeed, the Indian Automobile Market in Kolkata looks all set for a paradigm shift, with more and more car companies entering the market with their latest models.
