The auto major is concerned over falling sales volumes for commercial vehicles. In the month of June, the commercial vehicles sales declined 4.63% YoY.

However, the management expects July sales volumes to be better on a month on month basis. The company plans to sell 1.07 lakh lakh units by FY-12 wherein domestic sales would stand at 95,000 units. It is in the process of launching commercial vehicles in new export markets to counter the shrinking margins in inflation-ridden domestic landscape. The management is optimistic about maintaining its FY12 margin guidance of 10-11% on expectations of increase in market share. The stock was trading in the green.
