Modified On Aug 01, 2022 06:40 PM
The positive momentum continues in the overall CV wholesales in the month of July’22.
On the first day of August, the top truck brands posted their monthly wholesale numbers (vehicle shipped to their dealers) of overall commercial vehicle sales for July’2022. All the players, market leaders Tata Motors, Ashok Leyland, Eicher Trucks, and Mahindra & Mahindra maintained their growing sales in the month as demand for trucks stays robust. The July'22 number points towards greater demand for new trucks as sustained economic activities are supporting higher logistics and cargo shipping across the country.
The overall demand for trucks across last-mile, light, medium and heavy-duty segments remains stronger, however, it appears that there is some moderation in the numbers. Yet, truck makers expect demand for trucks to stay elevated as economic activities are looking rather buoyant as all the key economic indicators appear optimistic.
