Toyota Kirloskar Motor has sold a total of 8,801 units in une 2021, which constitutes a year-on-year growth of 128% (June 2020: 3,866), albeit last June was when the country was in the throes of the pandemic and witnessing lockdowns.

Having resumed production at its plant on June 15 after a prolonged annual maintenance shutdown and then a Karnataka lockdown, the company has been focusing on catering to pending orders.

Commenting on the June sales,  Naveen Soni, senior vice-president, TKM said, “Having resumed production with a 50% workforce last month after the gradual unlock in the state of Karnataka, our immediate goal was to cater to the pending orders of our customers. Although our dispatches only began by the third week of June, we have been able to register a 128% growth over domestic sales in June 2020. We are witnessing good traction in the market arising out of pent-up demand, leading to good levels of enquiries and new customer orders. We also anticipate retail sales to be better in the coming months, provided that the pandemic doesn’t pose newer challenges.”
