By Amit Panday New Delhi: Commercial vehicle sales , the barometer of economic activities, are expected to recover this fiscal with a year-on-year growth of around 30-50% after witnessing steep decline for two years in a row, Nitin Seth, chief operating officer, Ashok Leyland Ltd said at the ET Auto panel discussion – ‘Recap FY21 and Mission FY22 ’ – on Wednesday. While commercial vehicle (CV) sales, which saw a peak of over one million units in FY2019, had fallen 29% in FY2020 on account of new regulatory norms and the economic slowdown, the pandemic-induced crisis in the following year resulted in volumes crashing yet again by 21% YoY to almost half a million units. “I am of the view that commercial vehicles will see a growth in the region of 30%-50% this fiscal.

But we believe that the LCVs would fare best (among all CV categories) this year,” Seth said. … [Read more...] about CV down to half of the peak volume in FY21; How industry experts see the sector reviving in FY22?
