Arvind Saxena, Director - Marketing and Sales, HMIL said, “The domestic market continues to show a steady growth but the exports have slowed down especially in the EU countries in the absence of any fresh incentives from the respective governments there. Our new products have also helped us grow the market here and the recent launch of the Verna Transform should help us to improve our figures in the mid segment further in the coming months. We expect the domestic market to continue to grow in double digits in the second half of this year as well.”
The segment-wise cumulative sales for the month of June, 2010 are as follows: A2 segment (Santro, i10, Getz & i20) 42,099 units; A3 Segment (Accent & Verna) 4,137 units; and A5 segment (Sonata Transform) 18 units.
