Festive season sales
As car sales continue to ride the upward train, most manufacturers reported growth in wholesales through August 2022. This isn’t altogether unexpected as the number of footfalls to dealerships reaches new highs during the ongoing festive season.
And to cope with increased customer interest and planned purchases to coincide with the festive season, it’s only fair that dealers are well stocked. Given the long term nature of the festive season, it influences sales through parts of two quarters in the year. And timely deliveries are much sought after.
