Tata Motors had a really good outing in June 2020 as it had the least de-growth among carmakers. While the automotive industry is far off from reaching its regular potential, it is good to see some progression compared to the previous month of May when the sales and production operations resumed after nearly two months of hiatus.
The Tiago contributed with 4,069 units last month as against 5,537 units during the corresponding period in 2019 with 27 per cent Year-on-Year sales de-growth. The homegrown manufacturer’s cumulative domestic car sales stood at 11,419 units as against 13,351 units twelve months ago with 14 per cent volume decline.
Compared to May 2020 when only 3,152 units were registered, Tata enjoyed a massive Month-on-Month sales growth of 262 per cent. Tata introduced the Altroz premium hatchback at the beginning of this year alongside the facelifted Tiago, Nexon, Tigor and Harrier as the BSVI engine updates were accompanied by a refreshed package in each model.
