Siddhartha Lal, Managing Director of Eicher Motors Limited, says the company is working on creating an alternative vendor ecosystem to mitigate the impact of the semiconductor shortage.

Commenting on Eicher Motors' performance, Siddhartha Lal, Managing Director of Eicher Motors Ltd, said, "Continuing global shortage of semiconductor chips and the onset of the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, posed a challenge to the industry at large during the third quarter. We are working towards creating an alternative vendor ecosystem to mitigate the impact of the shortage on the supply front. Our performance continues to remain resilient despite challenges. Our international performance has been strong, and the introduction of the all-new Classic 350 drove significant consumer interest in India and in global markets. This is reflected in our financial performance with sequential growth in EBITDA margin of 1.1% quarter-on-quarter (adjusted for one-off). At VECV, we made good progress across all segments backed by our focused and granular approach. We achieved encouraging growth despite supply chain challenges. Our consistent efforts towards aligning the next stage of our growth with a renewed ESG vision saw Dow Jones position Eicher Motors Limited as one among only ten global automotive companies to feature on its elite list of Dow Jones Sustainability Indices 2021 (DJSI) in the Emerging Markets category."

The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is the brand's highest-selling model for over a decade now.

B. Govindarajan, Executive Director, Royal Enfield said, "Our growth momentum at Royal Enfield continues to remain stable, highlighted by persistent good performance in the international markets. Performance across Europe and Americas has consistently registered growing trends, and we continue to deepen presence and engagement in these markets. During the quarter, we furthered our commitment to the Asia-Pacific region with the commencement of operations at our CKD facility in Thailand. This facility will enable us to efficiently cater to the growing demand in the region, and also become the hub for the rest of Southeast Asia.

"The all-new Classic 350, since its debut in India, has been launched in APAC markets as well as made its debut in Europe at EICMA 2021. We've already manufactured and rolled out more than 1,00,000 units of the new Classic 350. This reiterates consumers' continuing love for the timeless style and design of the Classic. Our thrust on the non-motorcycling business also continues to show strong results, with the division registering a 29% year-on-year growth. We have robust plans for both apparel and accessories business and will continue to enable options for self-expression and personalisation for our consumers. Moving forward, we are optimistic that supply chain constraints will gradually ease out over the next two quarters and production to stabilise over time."
