Toyota Kirloskar Motor said its dispatches to the dealers last month stood at 9,622 units. The maker of Innova Crysta and Fortuner had reported zero sales in April last year owing to the nationwide lockdown announced by the government to check the spread of COVID-19.
"Despite the challenges, we continue to witness good demand owing to personal mobility needs and the same has helped us clock 9,22 units of wholesales in the month of April 2021", TKM Senior Vice President Naveen Soni said in a statement.
The company has been able to partially fulfil pending orders by making use of the pipeline finished goods inventory, so as to ensure minimal discomfort to customers, he added.
However, lockdown in different parts of the country has enhanced the gap between wholesale and retail, Soni noted.
