This comes in comparison to 19,673 units that were sold in the same time the previous year.

Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales and Marketing, Automotive Division, M&M Ltd., talked about the sales performance of the company by saying, “The month post festive season is historically a lean month for the automotive industry. Consumer demand, especially for passenger vehicles, typically picks up in the year-end that is in December. Therefore, we expect December to pan out better for the automotive industry.”
