Toyota Kirloskar Motor on Wednesday said its wholesales increased 32 per cent year on year to 20,494 units in April.

The automaker had dispatched 15,510 units to its dealers in April 2023.

The growth momentum was sustained despite a week-long maintenance shutdown from April 6 for the upkeep of machinery and equipment to sustain operational efficiencies, productivity and safety, the company said in a statement.

Last month, the company said its domestic sales accounted for 18,700 units while exports totalled to 1,794 units.

"Our product strategy resonates the strong connect with the market thanks to the diversified portfolio," Toyota Kirloskar Motor Vice President, Sales-Service-Used Car Business, Sabari Manohar said.
