Mahindra & Mahindra saw a 7% fall in its utility vehicle sales this month with 8,929 units this November compared to 9,650 units last year for the same month. Scorpio alone registered a decline of about 3% as it sold 1,980 units in November this year as compared to 2,037 units in November last year.

Meanwhile, motorcycle makers continue to ride a high with market leader Hero Honda selling 2,51,186 units this November compared to 2,35,836 units last year, a growth of 6%.

Hero Honda's cumulative growth for the April to November period stood at nearly 15% 19.56 lakh units.
