The stock price has spurted up today that the CV and UtilityVehicle (UV) maker for the month of March reported a steady 4% (YoY) sales volume growth.
It sold a total of 4,518 vehicles in March’18, led mainly by growth in UV, SUV and tractors segment which showed a good 27% growth. The CV segment in fact reported a 10% decline.
The company ended FY18 with a 6% fall in total volumes, with CVs recording a 9% drop and UVs, SUV and tractors volume going down 1%.
