Honda Activa continued to lead the way with 1,18,859 units but it endured a massive YoY de-growth of 51.2 per cent
In July 2019, the cumulative domestic scooter sales stood at 3,07,962 units as against 4,76,061 units during the same period last year with Year-on-Year volume de-growth of 35.3 per cent. Honda’s Activa continued to head the scooter standings but it endured a huge drop in sales too.
Since it is a major contributor to the total volume, it explains why the sales slump was at 35.3 per cent. Last month, Honda dispatched a total of 1,18,859 units as against 2,43,604 units during the corresponding period in 2019 with 51.2 per cent sales de-growth. The Access took a big hit in sales as well, just as the Activa.
The Japanese 125 cc scooter ended up in fourth position with 23,171 units as against 51,498 units 55 per cent negative sales growth. TVS Motor Company’s Jupiter series performed well last month as nearly 49,000 units were recorded against 57,731 units during the same period in 2019 with just 15.1 per cent volume drop.
