Toyota Kirloskar Motor sold a total of 12,017 units in the domestic market. The company exported 1064 units of the Etios series this month thus clocking a total of 13,081 units. TKM had sold 12,801 units in the domestic market and exported 1244 units of the Etios series in August 2016.
TKM has witnessed 40-50% jump in customer orders this month post the announcement on potential cess hike. Enquiries continue to be significantly high, however, due to production constraints the company has not been able to cater to the enhanced demand.
Commenting on the monthly sales, N. Raja, Director & Sr. Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said, “Our sales numbers this month are not truly reflective of the existing customer orders. Post the announcement on potential cess hike, there was a considerable rise in customer enquiries and orders. Yet we had production limitations which held us back from catching up with the high demand. Due to holidays in August, we further had the constraint of lesser number of production days."
