Dr Anish Shah, Managing Director & CEO, M&M Ltd, said, “Our performance in Q4 and FY22 underscores the resilience of our business model. Despite significant challenges due to various factors like COVID-19, commodity prices, semiconductor shortages and the Ukraine conflict, we have delivered strong results at the consolidated level.”

Jejurikar said, “We recorded our highest revenue for auto and farm segment in FY22. M&M became No 1 in SUV revenue market share in Q4 and H2 FY22, while FES gained 180 basis points market share in FY22.”

Future Plans

During the press conference, Jejurikar confirmed that at present the XUV700 has over 78,000 bookings with a waiting period of 18 to 24 months. With the current capacity, 5,000 units of the flagship products are manufactured monthly.

Going forward, the company aims to invest around INR 11,900 core during the FY23 to FY25 time frame to expand its production capacity for XUV700 as well as others in view of the demand for current products and future products.

Additionally, Dr Shah also confirmed that with the Scorpio N, the company has revised its market predictions, unlike the XUV700. However, he expects some amount of waiting period to still persist with the new SUV.

The company aims to introduce its born electric platform on August 15, 2022 in Oxfordshire, UK. It predicts these products will also see a similar sort of demand that is being witnessed by the current M&M products. Besides, it also plans to launch the electric version of its sub compact SUV, the e-XUV300 in the first quarter of CY23, Jejurikar confirmed.

Furthermore, it also plans to invest INR 3,400 crore to enhance capacity for the farm equipment sector.

Jejurikar said that the core focus for this year would be to focus on the domestic business for the farm equipment sector along with global expansion, as the company settles the financial and profit issues with its global businesses.

The company has also confirmed to be working on e-tractors. However, the demand for such products would be limited, the MD opined, as they lack the backend torque capabilities.
