Car sales in India rose an annual 20.85 in November, an industry body said on Wednesday, driven largely by an expanding economy and a festive season that peaked in that month.

Firms sold 161,497 cars in the month, data from the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) showed.

Sales of trucks and buses, a key indicator of economic activity, rose 18.3% to 48,314 units in November, SIAM said.
