Commenting on the monthly performance, Pravin Shah, Chief Executive, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “The first month of 2014 did not witness any improvement in the overall industry performance and the situation remains subdued. The recent Repo Rate hike will in coming months escalate the rate of interest on car loans impacting consumer sentiment. We hope the upcoming Auto Expo which will showcase new products and technology, will provide a trigger in giving a much needed boost to the auto industry and overall sentiment.”
