Vehicle Registrations in Kerala Down by 47% in July 2020

Listen to what FADA President Ashish Harsharaj Kale said:

The overall vehicle registrations in the country fell by 36% on a year-on-year basis. Commenting on how July 2020 performed, As India continues to open up, the month of July saw better registrations compared to June, though on a year-on-year basis auto sector recovery is yet to be seen anywhere near normal.

“Rural market though continues to show strong growth as monsoon continues its good spell. Tractor, small commercial vehicles, and motorcycle sales positively impacted with the monsoon progress and spread. Banks and NBFCs though flush with high liquidity are still having a cautious approach towards funding auto retail affecting the demand revival especially in segments of commercial vehicles, three-wheelers, and two-wheelers. Vehicle funding percentage has fallen by 10-15% in many segments increasing the initial contribution beyond the reach of many customers, despite having the intent to buy.” Kale said.
