Honda Motorcycles and TVS Motor did not sell a single bike in April

Honda has ceased operations at all its four production plants from March 22 as per the lockdown guidelines issued by the government. Not only Honda, this is the condition of all the major auto manufacturers in the country. In April 2020 all manufacturing plants and dealerships have been closed due to a nationwide lockdown.

TVS Motor Company also said in a statement that with effect from March 23, 2020, the company’s plants have been closed in compliance with Government of India guidelines. During the month of April 2020, TVS Motor Company has had zero sales in the domestic market. After resuming operations at Chennai Port, 8,134 units of two-wheelers and 1,506 three-wheelers have been exported from the March 2020 stock, adhering to extreme safety.

TVS Motor Company is getting ready to resume operations as per the state guidelines and is taking stringent steps to protect the health of the employees. The company said that they hope that once the situation becomes normal, people will buy vehicles for personal use, which will increase the demand for vehicles.
The same situation happened to Maruti Suzuki, the country’s largest carmaker. For the first time in the history of the Indian automobile industry, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI), Maruti Suzuki India and MG Motor did not sell a single car in April last month. According to government guidelines issued for the shutdown, production at the company’s plants is closed. However, after the ports opened, Maruti Suzuki exported 632 cars from Mundra port. All safety guidelines were followed for export.

At the same time, the automobile industry organization Federation of Automotive Dealers Association (FADA) said in April on zero sales that we will forget and work towards starting the business again. Fada said this is the first time in automobile history that sales have fallen to zero. This is a difficult time for the entire automobile community.

FADA President Ashish Harshraj Kale said that we will move towards restarting the business as soon as possible after the lockdown opens. He again said that April 2020 will be a month that the entire automobile industry wants to forget and say that such a time will never come in future.

The entire automobile sector has been affected due to the applicable lockdown across the country. He said that the entire automobile sector would have to come back into business together. In such a situation, if any one is left out, it will have a significant impact on it because the whole system is dependent on each other. Now also it has to be seen how the demand has an impact. However it is expected to be significantly lower. He also said that the auto industry would need help from the government soon after the lockdown, so that the demand could be brought back on track.
