    Commenting on the November 2020 data, Mr Rajesh Menon, Director General, SIAM said “We have witnessed an increase in wholesale numbers in the month of November, where Passenger Vehicles grew by 4.65% and Two-Wheelers by 13.43% over the corresponding month of last year, primarily on account of the festive season. The retail sales of two-wheelers lags behind the wholesale sales numbers but would even out over a period, as OEMs engage with their dealers. While the festive season brought back some fervor in specific segments, the overall economic scenario would determine the industry’s performance going forward.”
