The sluggish growth is majorly attributed to the pandemic related disruptions.

The report claims that passenger vehicle segments registered 910,431 units between April and June FY23, while sales in the first quarter of the previous four fiscals were about 873,000 units, 713,000 units, 154,000 units and 646,272 units respectively.

Indian auto industry is considered one of the largest and fast growing markets. However, the sluggish growth of just one per cent in the passenger vehicle segment and regrowth of 10 per cent in the two-wheeler segment is majorly attributed to the massive slump due to the pandemic in the FY21 due to the lockdown and other consecutive headwinds related to the pandemic.

"Recently the government has taken significant measures to ease the inflationary pressure and help the common man by reducing central excise duty on petrol & diesel and changing the duty structure to moderate prices of steel & plastic. Indian Automobile Industry appreciates and thanks the government for these efforts. Industry also keenly looks forward to similar support on CNG prices which has seen exponential increase in the last 7 months. Support on CNG prices would help the common man, facilitate public transport and will enable a cleaner environment," he further added.
