May 2021 may not have been the best month for any carmaker in India in comparison to MoM sales, however looking back at the same kind of situation in May 2020, the majority of the automobile companies did finish on a positive note, with the only exception of Toyota, which was undergoing maintenance phase at that time. Not only the sales but the export was also highly affected by the lockdown situation as most of the production was either halted for most of the time or was to follow the strict covid rules. The export in May 2021 stood at 31,777 units, which was more than twice the same period last year where the sales stood at 14,965 units. Comparing each model export, here is the list of Top 10 cars exported in May 2021.
