BENGALURU: Domestic car and SUV sales in India fell 50% in June, an industry body said on Tuesday, as coronavirus-related lockdowns kept consumers from making big purchases, putting more pressure on a sector already reeling from poor demand.

Passenger car sales fell 58% to 55,497 in June from a year ago, while sales of two wheelers - widely seen as an indicator of the health of the rural economy - fell 39%, the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) said.
