We posted the highest ever annual, quarterly and monthly sales, supported by a strong demand for our New Forever range and agile actions taken on the supply side.”
The auto major also ended the financial year with the highest ever SUV sales of 29,559 units. Chandra added a note of caution about the new financial year and highlighted the challenges ahead, “Going forward, semiconductor situation remains uncertain. We will continue to monitor the evolving situation closely and are refining our agile, multi-pronged approach to continue to fulfil customer orders.”
