Bajaj Auto has announced its sales numbers for the month of April 2021. During the said period, the Pune-based manufacturer reported its second-highest export numbers till date. In order to be precise, the company exported 2,21,603 units of two-wheelers last month. In comparison, the export numbers stood at 32,009 units during the same period last year. The massive difference in these numbers can be attributed to the fact that the country was going through a nationwide lockdown last year and hence, the sales of vehicles were badly affected. Speaking of domestic sales, Bajaj Auto sold 1,26,570 units last month compared to null sales during the corresponding period last year with the lockdown in place.
Summing up these figures, the company reported a total of 3,48,173 unit sales in April 2021. With this, the brand emerged as India’s number one motorcycle maker in the month of April 2021, selling the highest number of bikes among all manufacturers including Hero MotoCorp. Speaking on this milestone, Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director, Bajaj Auto said, “We have commenced FY2022 on a very positive note despite the challenging environment. The wide range of motorcycles made by us cover the entire spectrum from entry, middle and up to premium level segments allowing us to engage with a wide spectrum of customers from the mototaxi driver in Africa to the adventure seeker in Europe! This versatility is of enormous value in managing the current volatility as well as uncertainty and to keep the wheels of business moving for all our stakeholders!”
Now, coming to the commercial vehicle sales by the company, Bajaj Auto reported 39,843 unit sales last month and out of this figure, while 7,901 CVs were sold in the domestic market, the remaining 31,942 units accounted for exports.
