Mahindra has reported a sales increase of 224 percent YoY and 20 percent MoM to 26,650 units in May 2022
Mahindra was the 4th largest OEM in terms of sales in May 2022 after Maruti, Tata Motors and Hyundai. Like every other automaker in India, Mahindra too has posted outstanding YoY sales growth but it should be recalled that considering sales in May 2021 is not the correct benchmark as it was during that month that 2nd wave of the pandemic struck the country. It saw plant closures leading to loss in production while buyer’s sentiments were also at an all-time low.
Mahindra sales in the past month increased 224 percent YoY to 26,650 units up from 7,748 units sold in May 2021. MoM sales improved 20 percent over 22,169 units sold in April 2021.
