Mr. Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors Ltd. said, “The PV industry’s sequential growth momentum got adversely impacted in Q1FY22, owing to restrictions imposed across the country to break-the-chain of Covid transmission even though the industry is likely to record strong growth numbers off a low base on a year on year basis. Tata Motors PV's business posted a sale of 64,386 units in Q1FY22, registering a growth of 342% versus Q1FY21. For June’21, sales stood at 24,110 units, posting strong 3-digit growth of 111% versus June’20. In the EV segment, despite witnessing difficult business conditions, the company posted the highest ever quarterly sales of 1,715 units. This was on the back of increasing demand for Nexon EV, which posted its highest-ever monthly sales of 650 units in June ’21. The PV industry continues to witness uncertainty on account of global semi-conductor shortage and rising commodity prices, while the demand side is on a progressive recovery path. We continue to see strong customer interest in our product offerings, resulting in a strong order book and we aim to fulfill those to the best of our abilities in this supply-constrained environment.”
