Indian vehicle exports in the first quarter of fiscal year 2005 reached 41,085 units, a rise of 34.12 %.

Passenger car exports grew smartly in the first quarter by 32% to 35,933 units but there have been ups and downs, as shipments grew a lacklustre 10% in June compared to 87% in May.

Maruti, whose exports dipped almost 50% since May, largely contributed to the dip, yet on-year the firm notched up growth of 52% and Hyundai 531% because of the Santro Xing.

Hyundai shipped 14.5 % more vehicles in June 2004 compared with May.

The CityRover version of the Indica continues to be a slow seller with Tata’s cumulative passenger car exports standing at just 795 units for the quarter. Last year the figure was 1,166 units for the same period.
