It registered a strong growth of 64% in its domestic sales for the April-June quarter of FY2019 at 164,579 units as compared with 1,00,141 units in the same quarter a year earlier, helped by continued strong month-on-month sales performance of its commercial and passenger vehicles business in the domestic market, the company said.

The company’s sales from exports last month stood at 5,246 units, up 50% over 3,504 units in June 2017.

“This growth is driven by both our commercial and personal vehicles portfolio,” Rajan Wadhera, president, automotive sector, M&M Ltd., said.

Honda Cars India (HCIL) reported a 37.5% increase in its domestic sales to 17,602 units in June on account of strong sales of all new Amaze. The company had sold 12,804 units in the domestic market in June 2017, HCIL said in a statement.
