Car Sales Were Significantly Lower Due To This Reason
But, in April 2021, car sales were significantly lower than in March 2021. This is due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus in the country’s second wave.
Maruti Suzuki recorded a 47.4 per cent market share in April 2021 with an increase of 1.8 per cent compared to the previous month.
Except for Mahindra and Honda, all the other automakers in the country posted MoM de-growth due to the unfavourable circumstances prevailing across the country.
