Demand for our commercial vehicles continues to be strong and the newly launched Furio range of ICVs augurs well for our M&HCV business. As we move into the festive season, we are confident of seeing a turnaround in the overall buying sentiment, coupled with the just announced Mahindra Marazzo, which is scheduled for launch next month”.
