Commenting on the performance, Mr Vivek Vikram Singh, MD & Group CEO, said: "The global automotive markets remained challenging as light vehicle sales declined 17% due to the supply side disruptions. Our revenue grew 18% y-o-y in the first quarter, driven by the rapid scale-up of revenue from BEV programs, which are higher by 68% y-o-y, representing 29% of overall revenues. Our EBITDA growth was lower at 3% due to further increase in the material and power costs during last quarter. We are seeing margin pressure beginning to ease off during the current quarter, and we hope this reversal in inflation continues. We have continued to progress on all our key strategic priorities. Q1 FY23 was our second-best quarter ever for business development, led by significant new EV program wins for final drive differential assemblies and traction motors from large OEMs. With six new BEV program wins, our net order book grew 10% to Rs. 20,500 crores, of which EVs now contribute two-thirds."
