The Executive Director of Tata Motors, Girish Wagh stated on Tata Motors share price BSE,

“Tata Motors commercial vehicles domestic sales in Q3FY23 at 91,704 units grew 1.3% over Q3FY22, while being 2% lower than those recorded in Q2FY23. Our continued focus on retail during the quarter resulted in retail sales surpassing wholesale by 13% in December’22, by 6.3% in Q3FY23, and reducing inventory as we transition towards BSVI phase-2 norms.”

He also added,

“The growth in Q3FY23, was led by stronger sales of MHCVs (+35% vs Q3FY22) and a robust recovery in passenger carriers demand (+84% vs Q3FY22). Improving fleet utilisations, pick up in road construction projects and increase in cement consumption catalyzed the demand recovery for MHCVs. CV exports, however, remained subdued due to the prevailing economic situation in most overseas markets.”

It also maintained a close eye on the evolving geopolitical situation, inflation, and interest rate risks on both the supply and demand sides of the equation. Moving forward, the company anticipates good demand for replacements, specifically MHCVs, in Q4 FY23.

The Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd. and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd., Shailesh Chandra mentioned,

“For Tata Motors passenger vehicles, CY22 has been a momentous year as we outpaced industry growth and crossed the distinctive milestone of 5 lakh units comfortably to post wholesale of 526,798 units. Last quarter (Q3FY23) was one of the best quarters for the PV industry with strong retail from new launches, robust festive demand, and adequate supply of vehicles.”

Considering the sales of EVs or Electric Vehicles, he stated that EVs have seen the highest-ever sales at 12,596 units (growth of 116.2%) in Q3FY23. Simultaneously, Tata EV Motors share price has also crossed the cumulative sales milestone of 50,000 units, as the latest stock updates mention. Mr. Chandra then added,

“Tiago.ev received tremendous response, post the bookings opening during the quarter; deliveries to start in Jan’23. Going forward, we expect the growth momentum for EVs to remain strong with their rising popularity and the announcement of progressive policies by several states. Overall, we expect the PV industry to continue witnessing robust demand in the next quarter. We intend to remain vigilant and closely monitor any possible impact on the supply side due to rising COVID cases globally.”
