These underlying factors along with better cash flows in rural markets have helped boost tractor demand during June. It is expected that this demand will continue to remain buoyant in the coming months, it said.
Overall, M&M's total sales including passenger, commercial and utility vehicles, more-than-halved to 19,358 units compared to 42,547 units sold in June last year.
"The automotive industry has started to see recovery both in the passenger and small commercial vehicle segments. This has been led primarily by rising rural demand and movement of essential goods across the country. The company’s key brands such as Bolero, Scorpio and Pik-Ups, are all seeing good traction," said Veejay Nakra, Chief Executive Officer, Automotive Division, at M&M.
