While Honda models City and Jazz are in demand, M&M looks forward to launch of the U301/TUV300 and S101 sports utility vehicle which are launching ahead of the festive season in India. These upcoming launches, coupled with good monsoon and reduced fuel prices should steer the company towards better sales in the months ahead.
