New Delhi, 01 July, 2021: Honda Cars India Ltd. (HCIL), leading manufacturer of passenger cars in India, despatched 4 767 units in domestic market and exported 1 241 units in the month of June’21.

Commenting on the business situation, Rajesh Goel, Sr. Vice President and Director, Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd said, “Our June despatches were in line with our production output, which we maintained at below 50% of pre-COVID level. With unlocking of many states and reopening of dealer outlets in most markets, we expect car sales to further pick up from this month onwards and will accordingly ramp up our daily production. We hope that this positive momentum will continue thereby helping the industry to recover, however challenges of COVID related disruptions and rising ownership cost due to higher raw material prices remain.”

The company had registered 1 398 units in domestic sales in the corresponding period last year amidst operational restrictions of the COVID-led national lockdown. The export numbers stood at 142 in June’20.
