Commercial vehicles major Ashok Leyland sold 8,340 vehicles in April, said a company statement. Out of the total sales, 7,961 units were sold in the domestic market.
Considering the fact that Ashoka Lealand majorly produces vehicles for transporters and logistics usage and also by comparing this figure with the sales of the previous month’s 17,231 units, it can be said the sentiments in the logistics industry is also not very favorable.
As a breakup of April month’s sales, total of 4,007 light commercial vehicles and 4,333 medium and heavy commercial vehicles were sold last month.
On a month-on-month basis, sales declined significantly from 17,231 units in March. The decline can be attributed to the severe second wave of Covid-19 and the resultant restrictions and lockdowns.
