FADA Released Vehicle Retail Data – January 2023


The vehicle retail data was released by FADA yesterday, February 6, 2023. Speaking with the press, FADA President Manish Raj Singhania said, “While sentiments are improving at a snail’s pace and are better than what they were a year ago, the rural market is yet to fully come to the party as the cost of ownership has shot up significantly while disposable income has not increased in the same ratio.”

The budget session 2023–24 will also boost the automobile sector due to income tax reform. It will primarily increase the entry-level 2-wheeler segment, FADA said.
