Increasing demands for cars due to fear of corona virus.
The automobile sector suffered an approximate decline of 18 % in consumers after the corona broke out in March 2020 all over the countries like the US, China and India itself, but a recent survey gives a glimmer of hope to the companies.
A survey conducted by used car market leader Mahindra First Choice Wheels, nearly 75% of the respondents said they were willing to buy a car in the wake of the lockdown. The preference is also for smaller and more affordable vehicles. According to the survey, demand for the Rs 3-5 lakh range is up from 14% to 16%.
Social distancing will be a major factor in the shift towards private vehicles in the post-COVID-19 world. In public transport systems across India, it doesn’t provide any guarantee for social distancing. Moreover, trains and buses are always overcrowded during peak hours for social distancing to be even possible.
