Tata Motors growth momentum continues in August 2018 with 27% increase in its domestic sales performance

Key Highlights: (CV: 26%, PV: 28%, SCV/pickups: 37%, ILCV: 36%, MHCV: 16%)

Mumbai, September 1, 2018:

Tata Motors sales in the domestic market in August 2018, grew by 27%, at 58,262 units compared to 45,906 units over previous year. On a cumulative basis (April-August 2018), Tata Motors registered a strong growth of 45% at 274,666 units compared to 188,822 units against the same period last year due to the continued robust month-on-month sales performance of its Commercial and Passenger Vehicles Businesses in the domestic market. As part of Turnaround 2.0 in FY19, Tata Motors continues to focus on 3 clear objectives - 'Win Decisively in CV', 'Win sustainably in PV' and embed the turnaround culture within the organization while maintaining cautious optimism in the market.

Domestic - Commercial Vehicles

Tata Motors' Commercial Vehicles (CV) domestic sales in August 2018 were 39,859 units as against 31,566 units in Aug 2017, a growth of 26% led by the continued acceptance of the superior performance of our BS4 products. Cumulative sales for the fiscal (April-Aug 18) is at 186,318 units compared to 124,691 units, growth of 49% over same period last year. The CV industry continues to grow on the back of strong economic activity, in the backdrop of strong GDP growth of 8.2 per cent in the April-June 2018 quarter, and growth in manufacturing, agriculture, construction and private final consumption expenditure (PFCE).

The M&HCV truck segment with sales of 12,715 units continued to witness a growth of 16% over last year. This growth was on the back of road construction, affordable housing, irrigation projects and the government spending on infrastructure projects. The M&HCV segment has started to gain back its momentum in the market after the clarity on the increased axle load norms. In addition, Tata Motors BS4 range of Signa and Prima trucks and tippers have been well established for their superior performance and continue to gain acceptance amongst the customers.

The I&LCV truck segment reported a strong performance with 5,260 units, a growth of 36% over last year. This growth was strengthened by the new Tata Ultra range of trucks, in addition to e-commerce sector and increased rural consumption.

The SCV Cargo and Pickup segment reported a robust growth with 17,426 units, up by 37%, over last year. The volumes for this segment were aided by high private consumption-led growth and the continuously evolving hub and spoke model - all leading to the small vehicle demand for the last mile connectivity. The newly launched Tata Ace Gold has also been gaining significant acceptance and contributing to the volume growth.

The commercial passenger carrier segment recorded a steady growth with 4,458 units, 9% increase over last year. This was led by the demand for school buses and vans supported by the demand for Ambulances, in addition to the uptick in the STU buying.

Domestic - Passenger Vehicles

Tata Motors' Passenger Vehicles (PV) domestic sales in August 2018 continued its growth trend at 18,420 units compared to 14,340 units, higher by 28% over last year despite a challenging month for the industry impacted on the account of heavy monsoon. The continuous strong demand for our new generation vehicles has led to consistent month on month growth. The newly launched Nexon AMT has received an overwhelming response and is witnessing good traction in the market. The Passenger Car segment CINL28920MH1945PLC004520 registered a growth of 9%, while the UV segment grew by 93% clearly stating the preferences of today's customers. Cumulative sales of PV in the domestic market for the fiscal (April-August 2018) grew by 38%, at 88,436 units compared to 64,131 units for the same period, last fiscal.


The company's sales from exports (from CV and PV) in August 2018 was at an impressive 5,478 units compared to 3,082 units last year, a growth of 78%.
