Auto demand grows this festive season: Report

New Delhi, Nov 10 : More people are considering buying personal vehicles in the ongoing festive season, according to a recent survey.

A consumer mobility study by PAYBACK and its digital research partner, Unomer revealed that nearly 30 per cent respondents from south and north India are considering buying a new or a second-hand vehicle this festive season.

Across the regions, western India shows the lowest preference with two-third respondents having no plans to purchase a vehicle this year.

As per the report, a positive bias for purchase is coming primarily from two key factors. The first factor is personal mobility for work or personal use owing to safety or an additional vehicle for a family member and the second is the offers and discounts provided by car makers leading to lower cost of ownership.
