The company said its exports last month stood at 1,935 units in May as compared with 2,005 units in April.

“We are seeing a strong growth momentum for our entire product portfolio. The Thar is clocking robust bookings, despite extended waiting periods. XUV300 has been a tremendous success and continues to see strong demand,” M&M Chief Executive Officer Automotive Division Veejay Nakra said.

With the cases coming down and gradual opening up of markets, the company foresees a strong demand rebound, he added.

The automaker is working closely with its supplier partners to manage supply chain issues and meet the market demand, Nakra noted.
