Auto sales rise

The declines in production have come on the back of high inventory at the showrooms and production units that remained unsold during the March-August period due to the Covid-19 led restrictions.

In passenger cars, sales of Honda Civic and City jumped an impressive 65pc to 6,483 units during the quarter under review wheresa sales of Suzuki Bolan also witnessed a mammoth increase of 59pc to 1,758.

In the LCV segment, pickups and jeeps, Toyota Fortuner, Honda BR-V and Toyota Hilux sales increased by an impressive 47pc, 80pc and 81pc to 390, 952 and 1,702 units respectively during the first quarter.

This segment is usually seen as the luxury segment and any increase in these vehicles shows an upward economic recovery.

Furthermore, newcomers like Hyundai Tucson and Hyundai Porter a;sp sold 237 units in August-September, compared to 255 in July-September.

In heavy vehicles, trucks and buses failed to impress. Despite good volumes of Isuzu and Master, truck sales declined 10.4pc in 1QFY21 to 783 units due to 68pc decline in Hino’s to 115 units.

Master and Isuzu also sold 223 and 391 units, up by 84pc and 1pc, respectively. The revival in auto sales during the period shows the economic output and demand has returned.
