The company had sold 17,306 vehicles in the corresponding month last year, said in a statement.

Domestic sales rose by 52 per cent to 8,338 units last month as against 5,483 units in the same period a year ago, it added

Exports during the month under review grew by 32.69 per cent to 15,688 units as compared to 11,823 units in February 2016.

Commenting on the sales performance, Executive Director, Marketing, Sales and Service Anurag Mehrotra said the industry is seeing some green shoots, recovering from the impact of demonetisation.
