Title SsangYong's June sales fall 10 pct on lower demand
Date 2017-07-03

SEOUL, July 3 (Yonhap) -- SsangYong Motor Co. said Monday its June sales fell 10 percent last month from a year earlier due to slowing demand in emerging markets. 

The South Korean unit of Indian carmaker Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. sold 12,697 vehicles in June, down from 14,167 units a year earlier, the carmaker said in a statement. 

Domestic sales rose 8.1 percent to 10,535 units last month from 9,750 units a year earlier. But exports plunged 51 percent to 2,162 autos from 4,417 during the same period, the statement said. 

In the January-June period, the maker of the Rexton and Tivoli SUVs sold a combined 70,345, down 5.7 percent on-year from 74,577, it said. 

Mahindra & Mahindra owns a 72.85 percent stake in SsangYong Motor. It is one of the flagship affiliates of Mahindra Group, a US$18 billion Indian conglomerate with businesses that range from the country's largest SUV maker to farm equipment and financial services.
