The company expects the situation to improve during the festive season.

HMIL Director (Sales, Marketing and Services) Tarun Garg said that the company has been successful in making some contribution in reviving the country's economy. The new Creta SUV, Venue and the new Verna, and compact cars, the Elite i10 and Neos, contributed mainly to the company's sales in July.

Toyota Kirloskar sales down 48 percent in July at 5,386 units

Domestic market sales of Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) declined by 48.32 percent to 5,386 units in July. In the same month last year, the company sold 10,423 vehicles in the domestic market.

TKM Senior Vice President (Sales and Services) Naveen Soni said in a statement that despite a number of challenges, the company's retail and wholesale sales in July were better than in June.

He said that June was the first month after the unlock. Demand again recovered and retail sales were good. This was due to pending orders and suppressed demand of the customers. He said the company had to temporarily close its plant for four days due to the lockdown in Bengaluru last month. Due to this, production was also lower than planned.
