Commenting on HCIL’s Aug 2021 sales performance, Mr. Rajesh Goel, Sr. Vice President, and Director, Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd, said:
Positive sales momentum and overall strong demand helped us to achieve good volumes with the onset of the festive season. The celebratory fervour which began with Onam in Southern India will extend to the rest of the markets as we move towards the peak of festivities. Our best seller Amaze, which we launched in its new avatar last month, drove commendable sales volume with 6,591 units and reinforced its position as the most preferred family sedan in India. While we are quite optimistic on the demand side going forward, we are carefully monitoring the prevailing supply-side issues affecting the industry and any future COVID-related disruptions.”
