semi-conductor shortage continuing to play spoil-sport, passenger vehicle
sales, in spite of huge bookings in December, closed in the red. Dealers,
however, saw slight ease in vehicle supply thus giving some hope of improvement,
stated the Federation of Automobile Dealers Association (FADA) while releasing
its monthly sales data.
on the December 2021 performance, FADA President Vinkesh Gulati said, “The
month of December is usually seen as a high sales month where OEMs continue to
offer best discounts to clear the inventory due to change of year. It was,
however, not the case this time around as retail sales continued to disappoint
thus wrapping up an underperforming calendar year.”
mentioned in its earlier press release, FADA again noted that India is once
again under the grip of Covid with Delta/Omicron affecting people at an
ultra-fast pace. This has also ignited the 3rd wave, it said.
state governments have once again announced covid restrictions. Work and
education from home have resumed and will have a negative effect for auto
retail. With the fear of health care expenses rising again, the customers are
shying away from closing their purchase decisions, FADA pointed out.
IIT Kanpur predicting the peak of omicron sometimes in 1stweek of February,
FADA hence remains extremely cautious over the next 2-3 months.
