Festive demand lifts domestic passenger vehicle sales by nearly 13% in November

New Delhi: Passenger vehicle wholesales in India increased by 12.73 percent to 2,85,367 units in November as against 2,53,139 units in the same month last year riding on the back of festive demand, auto industry body SIAM said on Friday.

According to the latest data by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), two-wheeler sales rose 13.43 percent to 16,00,379 units, compared with 14,10,939 units in the same month last year.

Motorcycle sales were at 10,26,705 units as against 8,93,538 units in November 2019, up 14.9 percent. Scooter sales were also up by 9.29 percent at 5,02,561 units, from 4,59,851 units in the same month last year.

Three-wheeler sales, however, declined by 57.64 percent to 23,626 units last month as against 55,778 units in November 2019.

Total sales of passenger vehicles, two-wheelers, three-wheelers and the quadricycles during last month stood at 19,09,372 units, up 11.02 percent from 17,19,874 units in November 2019.

“We have witnessed an increase in wholesale numbers in the month of November, where passenger vehicles grew by 12.73 percent and two-wheelers by 13.43 percent over the corresponding month of last year, primarily on account of the festive season,” SIAM Director General Rajesh Menon said.

The retail sales of two-wheelers lag behind the wholesale sales numbers but would even out over a period, as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) engage with their dealers, he added.

“While the festive season brought back some fervor in specific segments, the overall economic scenario would determine the industry’s performance going forward,” Menon noted.

The total production of passenger vehicles, three-wheelers, two-wheelers and quadricycles last month stood at 23,19,845 units, as against 22,58,290 units in November 2019, marking a growth of 2.73 percent.

Last month, the country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India witnessed 12.3 percent increase in its dispatches to dealers at 1,56,244 units. Similarly, Hyundai Motor India saw 9.42 percent increase in wholesales at 48,800 units.

Kia Motors dispatches increased by 50.1 percent to 21,022 units in November, while Mahindra & Mahindra saw 24.46 percent rise in wholesales at 21,022 units last month.

In the two-wheeler segment, Hero MotoCorp wholesales increased by 13.83 percent to 5,75,957 units, while Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India witnessed 10.54 percent rise in dispatches to dealers last month.
