Mumbai: Automobile giant Tata Motors on Monday celebrated the roll-out of the 300,000th Nexon, India’s first GNCAP 5-star rated car, from its Ranjangaon facility in Pune. Since the 200,000th roll-out in June 2021, Tata Motors has recorded 100,000 units of the Nexon, in less than eight months.
While being recently featured in the top five highest selling cars in India, the Nexon has multiple awards to its credit, making it the highest selling Compact SUV in its segment. Furthermore, Tata Nexon has also assumed the lead in the Electric Vehicle (EV) revolution in India. With 13,500-plus customers, the Nexon EV currently dominates the Indian four-wheeler EV segment with a market share of more than 62 percent (YTD).
Driven and proven over 50 million km, the Nexon EV has saved close to 9,860 tonnes of CO2 emissions, which is equivalent to the planting of 1.47 lakh trees
Commenting on this milestone, Shailesh Chandra, managing director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd said, “It is indeed a moment of pride to witness the roll-out of the 300,000th Tata Nexon – a landmark product in the turnaround of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles. Being an integral part of the New Forever range, brand Nexon has successfully established its popularity in the compact SUV segment since its launch in 2017 and has become a part of many families. Adding to the popularity of the ICE variant, the Nexon EV too has created a niche for itself and has gained immense recognition from its customers.”
Chandra added, “The success of Nexon has been pivotal in proving our leadership in the SUV segment and we have expanded our Nexon portfolio by adding four new variants to the line-up. We are confident that the Nexon will continue to help expand our customer base and bolster the growth of Tata Motors.”
The new Nexon XZ+ (P) / XZA+ (P) variants will be equipped with additional premium features such as Premium Benecke Kaliko Leatherette ventilated front seats, air purifier and auto dimming IRVM. Additionally, the new XZ+ (HS) / XZA+ (HS) variants will sport an air purifier to make the drives healthier for the occupants. These additional features will also be available in their respective #Dark editions.
Since 2017, Tata Motors has constantly modernized the Nexon for safety, design, regulations, emissions, aspirational and segment defining feature additions. This has helped the Nexon to stay contemporary and in line with evolving customer needs.
With the introduction of the recently launched Kaziranga Edition, the Nexon will now be available in 40 variants, offering customers an array of options at different price points to choose from, according to their requirements. The range will include 22 variants in petrol and 18 variants in diesel, with automatic and manual transmission options.
