Guenter Butschek, CEO of Tata Motors, said this in the earnings report.
“The auto industry faced strong headwinds in FY20 amidst a slowing economy due to multiple factors – liquidity crisis, high fuel prices, changes in axle load norms and BS6 transition, all leading to weak consumer sentiments and subdued demand across segments. Disruption in the supply chain induced by the pandemic and the nationwide lockdown in mid-March 2020 added to the problems.”
Tata Motors doesn’t provide financials for its fiscal Q1 2021 guidance. However, it’s not looking good. The company is expecting further declines during the quarter as it feels the full weight of the coronavirus pandemic.
