On the sales performance, HCIL President and CEO Yoichiro Ueno said: The company has “conducted a price protection in June to those customers who purchased cars before GST rollout in order to counter the sales challenge during pre-GST period.

It helped us maintain good sales numbers“.

“We foresee that the GST rollout, good monsoon forecast and upcoming festive season will further improve the buyers’ sentiment,” he added.
