Passenger vehicle sales numbers for the month of July 2020 show that the Indian auto industry seems to have made a strong recovery with the lockdown being lifted in a phased manner. Car sales showed a marked improvement on the previous month and are almost back to the same levels as a year ago.Carmakers in the country registered sales of 1,97,523 units last month, which is just one percent short of July 2019’s numbers and also a substantial 69 percent increase over June 2020’s figures of 1,16,969 units. An increasing need for personal mobility is expected to have been one of the contributing factors for the sharp recovery. While sales last year were already under pressure due to a wider economic downturn, the faster-than-expected return to normal in July 2020 signifies a reduction in the impact of the pandemic on the automotive market in India.
