About TVS Motor Company
TVS is considered to be a well known brand in India in bike category, though it trails significantly behind Honda and Bajaj bikes, which rein the Indian roads. It is third largest in terms of two-wheeler production in India and among the top ten worldwide. The annual turnover of TVSMC is around 1 billion US dollars and that of its parent company TVS Group is in excess of four billion dollars.
TVS entered the Indian market in 1980, with the launch of an extremely popular two wheeler at the time and it was a 50cc moped. It became an instant hit in the Indian market because of its strength to carry two people.
Later on TVS went for a strategic partnership with Suzuki Motor Corporation of Japan, to manufacture the much awaited 100 cc motorcycles. The series was brand named Ind Suzuki; later on it was rechristened as TVS Suzuki Ltd. However, TVS's marriage with Suzuki to produce bikes lasted till 2001 only and then it was renamed TVS Motor Company. TVS expanded globally in the meantime when it started its production in Indonesia.
In a spurt of growth, TVS Motors registered a growth of 5% in sales in the first month of 2012 alone. It sold 13,000 more units in January 2012 as compared to the same month previous year. So, overall there has been a growth of more than 10% in the last few months alone.
Recently, TVS has indicated that it plans to launch eco-friendly vehicles in a bid to reduce carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. The technology is known as TVS automatic transmission and is completely “green” in nature. The entire process would be completed in a few phases.
