Ltd (HCIL) on Tuesday reported a 12.2 per cent increase in domestic sales at 12,804 units in June.

The company had sold 11,407 units in the same month last year, HCIL said in a statement.

Last month, the company sold 283 units of small car Brio, 1,307 units of premium hatchback Jazz, 1,193 units of compact sedan Amaze and 5,187 units of mid-sized sedan City.

The company also sold 4,243 units of its new compact sports utility vehicle (SUV) WR-V. Besides, SUV BR-V saw sales of 567 units. The sales for SUV CR-V stood at 24 units.

In addition, it exported a total of 450 units during the month under review.

On the sales performance, HCIL President and CEO Yoichiro Ueno said: The company has "conducted a price protection in June to those customers who purchased cars before GST rollout in order to counter the sales challenge during pre-GST period. It helped us maintain good sales numbers".

"We foresee that the GST rollout, good monsoon forecast and upcoming festive season will further improve the buyers' sentiment," he added.
