The automaker expects the positive momentum and demand to continue in the coming months as a celebratory emotion takes over the nation. “The celebratory fervour which began with Onam in Southern India will extend to the rest of the markets as we move towards the peak of festivities," Goel said.
While the company is optimistic about the rise in demand in the upcoming months leading towards peak of festival season, it is also carefully monitoring the situations related to coronavirus and supply constraints. “While we are quite optimistic on the demand side going forward, we are carefully monitoring the prevailing supply-side issues affecting the industry and any future Covid-related disruptions," Goel added.
