Hero MotoCorp sells 4.54 lakh motorcycles & scooters in October 2022

Hero Motocorp has announced that they sold 454,582 units in October 2022. The dispatch sales of October are not comparable to the previous years when the festival days are usually spread across the months of October and November. During the festive season, the company posted a strong double-digit retail growth of 20% over the corresponding festive period of FY'22. This helped the manufacturer in increasing its market share.

A strong festive has also helped reduce post-festive total inventory to the lowest in the previous 5 years. In Oct'22, Hero sold 419,568 units of motorcycles and 35,014 units of scooters. In Oct'22, the manufacturer sold 505,957 units of motorcycles and 42,013 units of scooters. The export numbers and domestic sales are also down.
