Ashok Leyland reports zero sales in April

New Delhi: Commercial vehicle manufacturer Ashok Leyland  has announced that it has recorded zero sales in April 2020, due to the lockdown imposed by the Government of India in a bid to contain the outbreak of the coronavirus.

The bus and truck manufacturer sold a total of 13,626 units in the domestic and export markets in April 2019, claimed the company in a statement.

Not only Ashok Leyland, but all the automakers present in the country have reported zero sales last month as the manufacturing plants and dealerships across India were shut due to the lockdown, since late March.

However, some companies have exported vehicles to overseas markets in April 2020.

Ashok Leyland in the statement also said that it will follow the government directives on COVID-19 pandemic and will start factory activities after getting the due clearances from the relevant authorities. Desk: Asianet Online
