Tata Motors has stated that the company has successfully put out 5 lakh units of Tata Nexon SUV. In fact, it took Tata Motors fewer than 6 years to accomplish this milestone.
Looking back, Tata Motors launched the manufacture of the Tata Nexon SUV back in September 2017, and the first 1 lakh unit production milestone was accomplished in 22 months and the 2 lakh unit production milestone was attained in another 23 months.
Following that, demand for the Tata Nexon skyrocketed, and it only took Tata Motors 8 months to reach the 3 lakh unit production milestone, and another 7 months to reach the 4 lakh unit production milestone.
The Tata Nexon, a sub-4m SUV from Tata Motors, is one of the safest SUVs in its class, with a 5-star safety rating for adult occupant protection from Global-NCAP. The Tata Nexon is, in fact, the first Indian SUV to receive a 5-Star safety rating from Global-NCAP.
At the moment, the Tata Nexon SUV is one of the best-selling SUVs in Tata Motors’ lineup, as more people have begun to appreciate the company’s high crash safety standards. The Tata Nexon is powered by two different engines. The 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine generates 118bhp and 170Nm of torque. The 1.5-litre diesel engine, on the other hand, produces 108bhp and 260Nm of torque. A 6-speed manual and a 6-speed AMT gearbox are available.
The Tata Nexon currently costs Rs 7.80 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol variant and Rs 14.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the XZA+ Luxs Red #Dark trim with diesel engine and AMT gearbox.
Tata Nexon is the first Indian SUV to receive a 5-Star safety rating from Global-NCAP, and it has earned a reputation for its tough build quality over the years. Having said that, the latest benchmark demonstrates the model’s popularity in the Indian automobile market.
Future plan of Tata Nexon
The Nexon is currently available in 69 different configurations: 47 petrol, 10 diesel, and 12 electric, with automatic and manual transmission options depending on the powertrain. Furthermore, sources tell us that the Nexon EV will receive some product upgrades in the coming weeks, with a major facelift for the entire lineup in the works. The facelifted Nexon will share many styling cues with the Curvv SUV and will go on sale later this year.
