New Delhi, May 12
Passenger vehicle wholesales in India declined by 10% to 2,61,633 units last month as compared to March this year, as Covid-led restrictions across various states impacted demand, auto industry body SIAM said on Wednesday. Passenger vehicle sales in March 2021 stood at 2,90,939 units.
“As expected, the Covid wave has impacted the sales of vehicles in April. Sales of passenger vehicles fell by about 10.07%, compared to March 2021, due to various restrictions in states which have been experiencing a surge in Covid cases,” SIAM Director General Rajesh Menon said. — PTI
