    Commenting on the July 2021 sales data, Mr Rajesh Menon, Director General, SIAM said "Indian Automobile Industry continues to face heavy headwinds in the form of global semi-conductor shortage and steep rise in commodity prices. On one hand, the Industry is managing such supply chain challenges while ensuring safety of its people, and on the other hand Industry is also keeping a close eye on the onset of a 3rd wave in India and across the world.

    Amidst such challenging and uncertain business environment, Industry is trying to maximize production and sales. However, sales for the period of April to July 2021 for Passenger Vehicle segment are still lower than the level of 2016-17; for Two-wheeler segment, still lower than the level of 2010-11; and Three-wheeler segment has been pushed back by many years.

    In July 2021, Passenger Vehicle segment clocked sales of about 2.64 lakh units; Two-wheeler segment stood at around 12.54 lakh units and Three-wheeler segment sold just about 18 thousand units.”
