Passenger Vehicle Segment Registers Triple-Digit Growth In Volumes

The extraordinary growth in sales is primarily attributed to a low base last year. Lockdown was imposed even this year in some of the key states of India but it was a partial lockdown and sales were happening to an extent in areas and states where there were no such restrictions.

The humongous growth in sales is primarily attributed to a low base last year. Now lockdown was imposed even this year in some of the key states of India but it was a partial lockdown and sales were happening to an extent in areas and states where there were no such restrictions. Comparatively, last year the entire nation was under a complete lockdown for over half of May leading to zero sales in those days. That said, the three-wheeler segment has continued to record negative growth because the shared mobility segment has still not revived as people continue to maintain social distancing and the COVID-19 crisis continues to take a toll on this segment. Same goes with the Vans category as most of the models in this segment are primarily used for commercial purposes.
