While the new milestone is certainly encouraging, we must tell you that these are wholesale numbers for the Creta, and not retail. The Federation Of Automobile Dealers Association's (FADA) says that dealerships have been running at a low inventory level as transit came to a halt during the lockdown period and haven't picked up the pace yet, post the lockdown. July is also the month when the lockdown was eased off generously in a bid to facilitate sales. In those regards, Hyundai India despatched 41,300 units in July while dealers retailed 29,413 units, a difference of 40.41 per cent. This gap will also reflect in the Creta's retail numbers.
