Press Release:
Unlike other months, we can’t represent a YoY comparison since India was under complete lockdown in April 2020 and not a single vehicles could be sold. Hence, all comparisons for this month has been done on MoM basis.

Commenting on how April’21 performed, FADA President, Mr. Vinkesh Gulati said, “India is currently facing one of its toughest times with 2nd wave of covid creating a havoc in everyone’s life. This time, the spread is not only limited to urban markets but has also taken rural India in its grasp.

Auto Registrations for the month of April witnessed double digit fall to the tune of -28% MoM, as most of the Indian states started going under lockdown (partial as well as full) beginning April 5th onwards. The spread started with Maharashtra followed by Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Rajasthan and other Indian States following the suit. Not surprisingly, all categories hence closed the month in red with 2W down by -28%, 3W by -43%, PV by -25%, Tractors by -45% and CV by -24% respectively on a MoM basis.

Unlike last year, the lockdown this time around has been imposed by State Governments and not the Central. Due to this, there has been no relief announcements which has come out till now either by the Center or RBI and Auto OEMs. FADA humbly requests Auto OEMs (our Principals) to handhold their dealers the way they did last year during the 1st phase of pandemic as situation is very grim in most of the states and Dealer Principals as well as their teams are fighting for their survival from Covid. FADA also requests OEMs to not burden dealers with high billings all the states where lockdown has been announced.

FADA also requests the Government to come out with financial package, the way they did last year. We also request RBI to come out with guidelines/notifications for relaxation of loan re-payment equivalent to the tune of number of days of lockdown each state has announced.”

Near Term Outlook

The 1st 9 days of May has seen extremely lean sales due to lockdown announced by majority of states. Lockdown also means dealership outlets to remain closed thus meaning zero sales. Considering the rising number of cases, one can expect the peak in terms of infections for India on a whole could be at least a fortnight away. Even where, Dealerships are open, the walk-ins have dropped to 30% and customers are delaying their purchase decision.

The just-concluded elections in states like West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Assam, movement of migrant workers back to states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar can keep the curve rising. Overall, FADA hence maintains absolute sluggishness for the month of May as most of the states have announced extension of lockdown till the end of the month.

Long Term Outlook

The 2nd wave of covid has not only unsettled urban but also the rural markets this time around. Recovery hence looks to take a longer time when compared to recovery which came after 1st wave.

The only ray of hope lies on Monsoon’s on time arrival which is likely to enter India through the southern coast around June 1. The country’s weather office has also said that India is expected to get average monsoon rains this year, thus raising expectations of higher farm output, which is central to the country's economy. This will also lead to rural markets recovering faster than urban. Also categories like Tractors and 2-Wheelers will have a rub off effect in terms of recovery.

FADA see’s overall recovery from the lows of FY21 and to reach the highs of FY19 only by FY23.

Inventory at the end of April’21
  • Average inventory for Passenger Vehicles ranges from 15 – 17 days
  • Average inventory for Two-Wheeler ranges from 30 – 35 days

Press Release:
Production: The total production of Passenger Vehicles*, Three Wheelers, Two Wheelers and Quadricycle in the month of April 2021 was 1,875,698 units.

Domestic Sales:
• Passenger Vehicle* sales was 261,633 units in April 2021.
• Three-wheeler sales was 13,728 units in April 2021.
• Two-wheeler sales was 995,097 units in April 2021.

Commenting on the April 2021 data, Mr Rajesh Menon, Director General, SIAM said “As our country battles with the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic, the Indian Automobile Industry has been standing shoulder to shoulder with the Government and local authorities to provide all essential medical and non-medical support to the society, in this difficult time.

Vehicle manufacturing has been restricted and OEMs have come forward for augmenting Oxygen supply for medical use. Industry is putting all efforts to increase the availability of oxygen by providing oxygen generating plants, concentrators, cylinders, mobile oxygen vans, setting-up vehicle tracking system in oxygen carrying vehicles to reduce their turn-around-time, etc. In fact, some members have also tied up with PSA plant manufacturers to de-bottleneck their operations and scale up production of oxygen plants. Other efforts include augmenting medical care facilities and infrastructure.

As expected, the COVID wave has impacted the sales of vehicles in the month of April 2021. Sales of Passenger vehicles fell by about (-) 10.07 %, compared to March 2021, due to various restrictions in States which have been experiencing surge in COVID-19 cases. Sales of Two-Wheelers have also plummeted by (-) 33.52 %, while Three-Wheelers witnessed a de-growth of (-) 57.01 %, from March 2021 to April 2021.

Supply Chain related production challenges continue with the lockdown restrictions in many parts of the country. The demand has been clearly impacted by second wave of COVID-19, both in terms of low consumer sentiments and closure of dealerships due to lockdown restrictions”.
