    Commenting on the October 2021 sales data, Mr Rajesh Menon, Director General, SIAM said "The Passenger Vehicles sales in October 2021 were down by (-) 27.15% and Two-Wheelers were down by (-) 24.94% compared to October 2020. Though the numbers of Three-Wheelers in October 2021 sold were more than the previous year, it is still less than half of what was sold in October 2019.


    Manufacturers were banking on the festive season to recover from the severe drop in sales they have faced in the early part of financial year 2021-22. However, shortage of semiconductors and steep hike in raw material cost have been a major spoilsport for the Industry.”
