Soaring demand for the Nexon led Tata to the last 50,000 units of the compact SUV in less than six months!
Tata Motors has achieved yet another significant milestone. This time, the Indian brand proudly celebrates the 200,000th production milestone of its bestseller, the Nexon. As seen in the image, the 200,000th Nexon rolled off the production line at Ranjangaon recently. What makes this achievement even more noteworthy is the fact that the SUV reached the 150,000th production mark in November 2020 – Tata claims the last 50,000 units of the Nexon have been produced in less than six months of the previous milestone. It’s a testimony to the Nexon's ever-growing month-on-month popularity.
Speaking of month-on-month, a quick look at the Indian car sales figures for May 2021 reveals that the Nexon, overall, was the 4th-highest selling model in the country, clocking 6,439 units (dealer dispatch figure). This also makes it the best-selling Tata model in the previous month as well as the only Tata model to be in the top five.
Ever since its launch in September 2017, the Nexon has had quite a few firsts attached to its name. In December 2018, it became the first Indian-made car to achieve a five-star Global NCAP safety rating. In September 2020, it also became the first Indian passenger car to be listed on the globally-renowned International Dismantling Information System (IDIS) platform for End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs).
And it's not just the standard Nexon that's been doing well for Tata. In fact, its electric counterpart is also one of the highest-selling passenger EVs on the Indian market.
