Auto Expo 2020: Car Companies To Launch 80 New Cars Amidst The Slowdown
But the Indian automobile sector has been dealt the biggest blow by the economic slowdown and it is going through a crisis at present. Latest RBI figures reveal that the pace of loans to buy vehicles has slackened. According to statistics, the growth rate of vehicle loans was 8.8% in December 2018, which reduced to 7.2% in December 2019. According to experts, people’s faith has been shaken in view of the derailed economy and they are refraining from taking loans to buy vehicles. Figures from the Federation of Automobile Dealers’ Association of India also show that vehicle sales dropped in December 2019 as compared to December 2018. In December 2018, 18,80,995 vehicles were sold across the country but this number fell to 16,06,002 vehicles in December 2019. This means that there was a 15% decline in sales, which is the biggest fall in the financial year 2019-20. A fall in the sale of vehicles is also being recorded each month in the country. It is clear that people have turned away from vehicles and auto loans. While efforts are being made to prop up the automobile market through the Auto Expo 2020 during this period of economic recession, the question is when the fear of empty pockets has made inroads into people’s minds, who will risk-taking loans to buy vehicles?
