Two wheeler sales 2020
Traditionally, festive season sales in the country usually manages to report an uptick in activity, and in 2020, more than ever before this has been a necessity. With sales activity having contracted to 0 for a few weeks starting at March end when complete lockdown was announced, sales in recent weeks has brought upon some cheer.
While this won’t be enough to post recovery, it does help in posting strong Q4 2020 sales to end the year on a positive note. Sales has been fuelled not just by planned purchases but also owing to low base numbers in 2019 when the industry was already in the grip of a slowdown. Add to this deferred purchase decisions owing to lockdown, a multitude of specially curated finance plans to encourage sales, and a renewed discussion around personal mobility, circumstances have aided current purchase decisions.
