The company won orders worth Rs 3,000 crore during the quarter under review, of which 50% came from the EV segment. With signs of volume growth moderation in most segments, Q1FY24 was a mixed bag from a demand perspective, the company said. As per Minda Corporation, demand for passenger vehicles and two-wheelers was mainly driven by new product launches and the wedding season, while commercial vehicles and tractors witnessed a decline in volume.
"Moving forward, we’ll continue to build out our product portfolio and sharpen our competitive edge by investing in R&D, and partnerships, to produce high-quality products backed with cutting-edge technology that best adapts to the evolving needs of customers worldwide. Demonstrating our focus on innovation, we filed 4 patents during the quarter, taking the total number of patents filed to 255," Minda said.
