In January, we began the year with record sales of year-on-year (YoY) growth of 188% and recently closed the first quarter ending March with sale of 276 cars. This is yet another indication of Volvo Cars increasing strength in the Indian auto market as well as the continuing acceptability of our products amongst the patrons. March was a successful month for us, despite a challenging market and circumstances. This is our first dealership in Bangalore.
