The pace of deliveries is more than double of company's dispatches in June, he added.

The company was in the middle of BS 6 transition when the lockdown happened, so ever since production resumed, the company's priority is to quickly roll out the awaited models, including all new City, new WR-V, Civic BS 6 diesel and new Jazz, Goel said.

"Three of these models will be launched in the next two weeks, and accordingly we will progressively ramp up our volumes to cater to the market effectively," he noted.
