Honda City and Amaze continue to drive volumes for HCIL and have posted strong performance in year 2022. We had to realign our targets due to chip shortage which impacted our production throughout the year.

As the overall environment continues to be encouraging and positive, the key to success will also depend on how the disruptions like chip shortage is controlled to minimize business impact.”
