"Demand for passenger vehicles continued to stay strong in Q1 FY23 even as the supply side remained moderately impacted due to the lockdown in China.
"Our SUV portfolio contributed 68 per cent of Q1 FY23 sales. Electric vehicle sales attained new heights with quarterly sales of 9,283 in Q1FY23 and highest-ever monthly sales of 3,507 units in June 2022," Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd Managing Director Shailesh Chandra said.

Commercial vehicle (CV) sales in the domestic market stood at 34,409 units last month against 19,594 units in June 2021, a growth of 76 per cent, Tata Motors said.
In the first quarter of FY23, domestic CV sales stood at 95,703 units over 43,400 units in the comparable period last fiscal.
Tata Motors Executive Director Girish Wagh said, "The growth in Q1 has been broad-based across regions and segments".
Increased activity in road construction, mining, and growth in agriculture and e-commerce drove the growth of both medium, heavy, intermediate and light CV segments.
"SCV (small commercial vehicle) demand from last-mile distribution has remained robust backed by continued consumer spending," Wagh added.
