The company sold 45,495 units of hatchbacks -- Santro, Getz Prime, i10 and i20, 3,979 units of Accent and Verna and 47 units of Sonata Transform during August.

"Over the last two months, we have registered steady growth figures and in August the domestic sales have been strong. We are now entering the festival season phase and strong sales would help the Indian automotive industry to return to healthy growth," HMIL Senior Vice-President (Marketing and Sales) Arvind Saxena said.

He said the company has big expectations from the coming festival season and hopes to do better its last year's performance.
