The current festive season is anticipated by dealers to be the best in a decade for the passenger vehicle segment as the auto industry anticipates even higher sales during the month. All the auto segments such as passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles and two-wheelers, barring tractors and some three-wheeler trims, performed better in September as compared to the year-ago period.

Passenger vehicle retails increased 10 per cent to 2,60,556 units last month as against 2,37,502 units in September of 2021. FADA President Manish Raj Singhania told PTI that this could be achieved due to better availability of cars due to easing semiconductor supply, new launches and feature rich products. "(All this) kept customers glued to dealerships for getting their favourite vehicles during the auspicious period," Singhania added.
