Sales of all three wheels were also successful, falling 91% to 1,251 units from 13,728 units in April.
“Most of May was blocked in many states, and thus affected overall sales and production. Many members closed manufacturing plants to divert oxygen from industrial use for medical purposes,” said SIAM CEO Rajesh Menon.
With the introduction of Covid restrictions in several states in the country, enrollment in all categories fell to 5,35,855 units last month, compared to 11,85,374 units in April 2021.
