Passenger vehicles in the domestic market rose 12.73 per cent to 2,85,367 units last month, industry body Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) said on Friday. Total sales across segments — including passenger and commercial vehicles — came in at 19,09,372 units in November, marking a growth of 11.02 per cent compared with the corresponding period a year ago. The latest data shows a rebound in the auto sector following months of weak demand on account of the coronavirus pandemic-related restrictions.
The rise in sales was primarily on account of the festive season, SIAM said in a statement. Two-wheeler sales also increased, marking a growth of 13.43 per cent to 16,00,379 vehicles in November.
