Each month we bring you the Winners & Losers comparison, where winners are those which saw an improvement in sales over the previous month and losers being those which witness a decline in sales. There were zero sales in April 2020 and lockdowns were lifted only towards the end of May due to which sales were obviously low. Therefore most of the cars saw an obvious increase in sales in June over May 2020; however there were some which still suffered from a decline.
|Model||May 2020||June 2020||Difference|
|Honda Civic & City||263||1839||599%|
|Suzuki Wagon R||386||476||23%|
