Highlights

  • Hero MotoCorp reported positive growth after months of declining sales
  • Domestic sales grew by 8.5% year-on-year, while exports dropped by 18.6%
  • Motorcycles continue to be the growth driver for Hero MotoCorp

Hero MotoCorp reported positive growth in monthly and year-on-year sales in August 2020, as the industry recovers from the Coronavirus pandemic. The world's largest two-wheeler maker reported a total sale (domestic + exports) of 584,456 units last month, witnessing a growth of 7.55 per cent over August 2019. The company's month-on-month sales also increased by 13 per cent over July 2020, when the company sold 514,509 units. It needs to be noted that Hero MotoCorp and by extension the two-wheeler sector was going through a lull period last year and sales in August 2019 were already down by 20.6 per cent. However, it is heartening it to see the manufacturer reporting sales growth once again as the two-wheeler sales head towards course correction.
