Added in: Features

For quite sometime now, the retail situation for car manufacturers hasn’t been encouraging enough, as the customers have reduced and people are not able to purchase vehicles due to many other factors like rising fuel prices and expensive repair costs, etc. The 4-wheeler market recently saw a dip of over 44.5% in sales, in June 2019 when compared to June 2018. This drop in sales has affected car manufacturers and is also one of the main causes of the slowdown in the automotive retail sector. Except for Mahindra, all the other companies have registered a steep drop in sales. Let’s have a look at the top-5 companies which have managed to hold on to their positions despite facing losses in June 2019, in India.
