Month-on-Month ICE passenger vehicles sales for the homegrowm automaker has seen a 9% dip last month. In July this year, it registered 29,581 units.

The sales growth in August for the automaker can be attributed to the low base last year, pent up demand and increased demand for personal vehicles.

The automaker also informed in a release that the semiconductor shortage continues to impact the auto industry globally. The recent lockdowns in East Asia too have worsened the supply situation and hence Tata Motors is forced to moderate production and offtake volumes in the coming months. However, the brand has not revealed the exact number of production cuts.
