Tata Motors Registers Total Sales Of 2,51,822 Units In Q4 FY23, Up 3% Over Q4 FY22
Tata Motors scaled a new sales peak by posting its highest-ever annual domestic sales of 5,38,640 units, achieving a robust 46 per cent sales growth over FY22 and registering its third successive year of industry-beating growth
Tata Motors sales in the domestic & international market for Q4 2023 stood at 2,51,822 vehicles, compared to 2,43,459 units during Q4 2022.
Domestic sales of MH&ICV in Q4 2023, including trucks and buses, stood at 54,435 units, compared to 40,391 units in Q4 2022. Total sales for MH&ICV Domestic & International Business in Q4 2023, including trucks and buses, stood at 56,059 units compared to 52,976 units in Q4 2022.
Tata Motors commercial vehicle domestic sales in Q4 FY23 at 1,12,145 units was 22 per cent higher than the previous quarter (Q3 FY23) and 2 per cent higher than the same quarter, last year (Q4 FY22). This growth was driven by the robust demand for heavy trucks required to service the strong infrastructure push by the Government plus increased activity in e-commerce, construction, and mining. Higher replacement demand, advance buying in anticipation of price hikes, and year-end buying to claim depreciation benefits, further buoyed the demand towards the end of the quarter. As a result, M&HCVs grew by over 33 per cent vs Q3 FY23, while being 18 per cent ahead of Q4 FY22. However, the demand for small and light commercial vehicles continued to be impacted due to high-interest rates and high base effects. Overall, Tata Motors CV domestic business grew 22 per cent in FY23 vs FY22.
Girish Wagh, Executive Director, Tata Motors said, “With the new BSVI phase II starting from April 2023, we have used the opportunity to significantly enhance key attributes of our entire portfolio while complying with the emission norms. Our commercial vehicles will now deliver even better performance enabled by smarter technologies and enhanced features. With the government’s continuing thrust on infrastructure development, we remain optimistic about the overall CV demand in FY24 while maintaining a close watch on geopolitical developments, interest rates, fuel prices and inflation.”
Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility said, “FY23 has set a new record for passenger vehicle sales in India. The steep growth witnessed by the industry was driven by post-COVID pent-up demand in the early part of the year, the launch of several new vehicles and the easing of the semiconductor shortage. While SUVs and EVs led this growth, customers’ rising preference for safe vehicles and smart technology features was equally pronounced. Looking ahead, we expect the demand for personal vehicles to remain robust with the trend of electrification further strengthening as more options are made available to customers plus support from a rapidly growing and improving ecosystem. However, the growth rate of the passenger vehicle industry may moderate due to a strong base effect as well as macro factors including hardening interest rates, rising inflation, and the cost impact from progressive regulatory norms. We continue to stay agile, carefully monitoring the supply situation, particularly semiconductors and any potential waves of Covid.”
Tata Motors scaled a new sales peak by posting its highest-ever annual domestic sales of 5,38,640 units, achieving a robust 46 per cent sales growth over FY22 and registering its third successive year of industry-beating growth. All four SUVs – Nexon, Punch, Harrier and Safari, recorded their highest-ever annual sales, contributing a substantial 66 per cent of the total volume. Being the leader in fast-growing EV segment, we continued to accelerate both its adoption as well as the development of its enabling ecosystem. Tata Motors crossed the significant landmark of 50,000 EV sales in FY23, its highest ever, to post a significant growth of 154 per cent over FY22. In addition, we also recorded the highest-ever quarterly and monthly EV sales of 15,960 (Q4FY23) and 6,509 (Mar’23) respectively. EV penetration in our portfolio continued to increase from 7 per cent (Q1FY23) to 12 per cent (Q4FY23) of our total sales.
