Hero claims that it is the first company globally to achieve such numbers. Speaking about the achievement, a senior official told the news agency:

This festive season has been a blockbuster for Hero MotoCorp. The highest-ever single day retail sales of well over three lakh units on Dhanteras comes on the back of what has been a season of new global records for Hero.

This year, Hero MotoCorp also became the first company in the world to sell 2 million two-wheelers in a quarter. The brand sold a record 7.2 lakh two-wheelers in September. In the same month, Hero achieved 75 million unit sales milestone, and celebrated its achievement by offering festive discounts on its products.
