Auto companies in India like Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra and Mahindra and others reported zero domestic monthly sales for the first time in history due to the nationwide lockdown imposed in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Apart from Maruti and M&M, other car makers like Hyundai Motors, Toyota India and MG Motors also reported zero domestic car sales for April. Essentially, vehicle manufacturing factories remained closed in April complying with the government's guidelines for the 40-day lockdown. M&M, however, did manage to export 733 units in April. However, most of the car makers believe that restoration will be gradual as the industry is faced with the challenges of low consumer sentiments, disrupted supply chains and missing migrant workers. In fact, in a desperate move, most of the auto companies are actively exploring digital platforms, offering virtual tours of the vehicles and financing options to ensure customers take to online bookings in the post-COVID scenario.
