A close look at the numbers shows that the Pune-based company moved a total of 43,08,433 units in FY22. These numbers are 8 per cent higher than the results of FY21. Two-wheeler domestic sales were down by 30 per cent in Q4 and 9 per cent in FY22. The CV segment has been faring much better and there has been an increase in domestic sales in the last quarter and the entire year as well. The international business saw a net growth of 22 per cent in the two-wheeler department and 21 per cent in the commercial vehicle segment. The company managed to sell more than 2.5 million vehicles this year, compared to around 2 million in the last financial year.

The company said that it was still struggling with supply chain challenges and this was the reason behind the lower numbers in Q4. In the domestic commercial vehicle category, the company saw a growth of 47 per cent against an industry growth of 21 per cent. This has resulted in Bajaj owning a 62 per cent market share, an improvement of 10.9 per cent when compared to FY21.
