The overall sales figures reduced by over 11,000 units in March when compared to the previous month

Premium hatchbacks: Tata Altroz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20, Toyota Glanza

The coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on car sales in the country. As we all know there have been no shipments since the enforcement of the ongoing countrywide lockdown. Moreover, there was a decline of over 40 per cent in the units shipped given poor market sentiment and some of the cars were yet to be upgraded to meet the now effective BS6 emission norms. Here's the sales report of the premium hatchback segment for the month of March:
