Among the buzzing stocks, today is Tata Motors.

Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) on January 11 released its 2020 sales figures, which reflected a considerable hit as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic but highlighted signs of recovery as sales in China remained strong.

For the calendar year 2020, retail sales for Jaguar Land Rover were 425,974 (vehicles), down 23.6% from 2019, reflecting the industry impact of COVID-19 particularly in the first half of the year when plants were shut down for more than two months.
