Overall sales for the month of May 2021 stood at 5,35,855 units, compared to 11,85,374 units in April 2021. Since India was under complete lockdown in May 2020, a YoY comparison cannot be represented. However, compared to May 2019, when 18,22,566 units were sold, total vehicle retails have fallen by 71%.
This fall in sales is largely due to the lockdown imposed in various states during the month due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Apart from urban markets, this time, even rural areas were badly hit.
