Eicher Motors Q4 results | Consolidated net profit up 34% QoQ at Rs 610 crore; revenue grows to Rs 3,193 crore

The growth is led by YoY increase in average selling prices (ASPs) due to a richer model mix and price hikes taken over the past few quarters. This was however partly offset by YoY decline in volumes for Royal Enfield. Royal Enfield volumes during the quarter were down 10.4 percent on year, while the full year volumes declined 2.3 percent.

“Our new truck plant at Bhopal became fully operational that puts us in a good situation as far as capacity is concerned and we are well placed to take advantage of the expected growth in the industry, supported by our award winning range of products”, Aggarwal added.
