May 2020 Sales Release
New Delhi, 1st June 2020: Amidst lockdown 4.0 and operational restrictions, Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) dispatched 375 units in domestic market in May 2020.
Speaking on the market situation in May 2020, Mr Rajesh Goel, Sr. Vice President and Director, Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd said, "COVID-19 pandemic has been an unprecedented situation where HCIL and our dealer network has been responding in the best possible manner. During May, after roll out of several relaxations from central & state government, we focused on re-opening of our network while ensuring strict adherence to the sanitization, safety & distancing guidelines for COVID-19 prevention. Against all odds, our dealers have now been able to operationalise almost 280 facilities pan India. As a result, we were able to deliver more than 1,900 units to our customers. The domestic wholesale last month was of course quite limited due to the negligible inventory available at our factory before the lockdown."
"In order to make car-buying process more convenient for customers, HCIL recently introduced ‘Honda from Home’ online Sales platform. This facility would surely complement dealership sales and reduce the physical contact of the customer with the dealership," he added.
