The company had sold 44,718 units in the same month in 2012, Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) said in a statement.
"We are happy to have grown in some of our major segments during January 2013... The recently announced reduction of 25 bps both in the repo and CRR rates is a positive step and is expected to bring in the much desired momentum in the market," M&M Chief Executive (Automotive Division) Pravin Shah said.
The Industry has already seen reductions in auto loan rates by some banks and it will help improve customer sentiments, he added.
In the domestic market, the company registered a 15.64 per cent rise in sales to 47,841 units during the month compared to 41,369 units in the year-ago period, M&M said.

The company, however, said sales of its three-wheelers declined by 5.14 per cent to 5,811 units during January 2013 from 6,126 units in the same month last year.
