Domestic sales for the quarter also slumped around 2% at 2.22 lakh units compared to 2.25 lakh in the corresponding quarter previous year.

Talking about the month of June, the company’s total sales came in at 81,673 units, slightly lower than the 82,570 units it sold in the April-June period of 2022. However, the number was higher than street estimates of around 78,000 units.

The company’s total exports for the quarter stood at 3,900 units, down from the 5,420 vehicles it exported in the corresponding quarter last year.

The slump in the company’s number has been due to the downturn in commercial vehicle (CV) sales. However, the company is hopeful for a turnaround in the coming months. “The promising monsoon and continuing infrastructure thrust by the Government auger well for the CV industry, even as it faces the headwinds of high-interest rates, fuel prices and inflation," said Girish Wagh, Executive Director, Tata Motors.
