Commenting on the August 2020 data, Mr Rajesh Menon, Director General, SIAM said “After a period of lull owing to the COVID 19 imposed lockdowns, the month of August 2020 has witnessed improvement in the sales figures of Two-Wheelers and Passenger vehicles. However, Three-Wheeler segment continues to post a de-growth of more than (-) 75% compared to August 2019. Industry is positive that the coming festive season will pave the way for a faster revival of the industry.”

Mr Kenichi Ayukawa, President, SIAM stated “We are beginning to observe growth which is instilling confidence back into the industry, especially in the Two-wheeler and the Passenger Vehicle segments. Even though the industry witnessed year-on-year growth in August 2020, it is to be recognized that the base figures in August 2019 itself was very low, as Industry had shown a de-growth of about (-) 32% for Passenger Vehicles and (-) 22% for 2 Wheelers in 2019, over 2018, then. Still, 14% growth of Passenger Vehicles and 3% growth in Two Wheelers in August 2020 indicates trends of recovery for the Industry, though it is on the backdrop of pent-up demand and beginning of a Festive Season this month.”
