Toyota Kirloskar Motor Sells 9,622 Units In Domestic Market In April 2021

Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) reported a total sale of 9,622 units in April this year. The company also announced the scheduled annual maintenance programme at its Bidadi plant.

TKM believes its key responsibility at this time is to secure the health of employees, their families and other stakeholders in view of the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Various safety protocols including disinfecting the workplace and common areas on a daily basis, limiting number of employees and social distancing at the plant are ensured. The manufacturer has also started vaccination of its employees and successfully vaccinated those above the age of 45. There’s a helpline set up for covid resources for infected employees and their families. The manufacturer is also prepared to divert oxygen supplies to the Karnataka health department, if required.

Expressing his views, Naveen Soni, Sr. Vice President, TKM said, “At the outset we express our solidarity and continued support for the community at this hour of peril. Given the current situation and considering all those who have been impacted by the second wave of the pandemic, what is most important to TKM is the wellbeing and safety of our employees, dealer & supplier staff and the community at large. Despite the challenges, we continue to witness good demand owing to personal mobility needs and the same has helped us clock 9622 units of wholesales in the month of April 2021. We have been able to partially fulfill pending orders by making use of the pipeline finished goods inventory, so as to ensure minimal discomfort to our customers. However, partial lockdown in different parts of the country has enhanced the gap between wholesale and retail. Also, sporadic lockdowns impacting different states & cities for varying durations has increased logistical challenges to supply the right vehicle to the right dealership and at the right time. We are trying our best to work around such logistical challenges so as to be able to meet customer requirements at the earliest.” (MT)
