Why This Growth?
Sources say that the sales growth in August for Tata Motors can be attributed to the low base last year, pent-up demand and increased demand for personal vehicles.
Apart from this, the semiconductor shortage continues to impact the auto industry globally, as informed by the automaker in a release.
The supply situation has worsened for Tata Motors due to recent lockdowns in East Asia.
hence Tata Motors is forced to moderate production and offtake volumes in the coming months but, the brand has not revealed the exact number of production cuts.
