Commenting on HMIL’s sales performance Arvind Saxena, Director - Marketing and Sales, HMIL said, “Although the market continues to grow we were constrained by our planned annual maintenance shutdown this month which restricted our numbers as we had to divert our export production to meet the demand for the domestic market. The demand for the i20 continues to swell as demand has shot up by almost 35% following the successful launch of the new model and addition of two trims”.
The segment-wise cumulative sales for the month of May, 2010 are as follows: A2 segment (Santro, i10, Getz & i20) 42,460 units; A3 Segment (Accent & Verna) 4,310 units; A4 Segment (Elantra) 1 unit; A5 segment (Sonata Transform) 37 units; and SUV segment (Tucson) 0 unit.
