Our homegrown carmaker, Tata Motors who have been successfully setting benchmarks in the passenger vehicle segment with their ultra-safe cars have now set a benchmark in their latest segment i.e. the Electric vehicle segment.
Tata Motors today announced a significant milestone in the electric vehicle (EV) domain by rolling out the 1000th Nexon EV from its manufacturing facility situated in Pune. This landmark has been achieved in just over 6-months after the commercial launch of the vehicle portraying the rapid growth in both interest and demand for EVs. Acknowledged as the most preferred electric car in India, the Tata Nexon EV is the best seller in its segment, helping Tata Motors post a market share of 62% in EVs in Q1FY21.
This is a positive news, as the Nexon EV has managed to reach this milestone despite being sold through a limited number of outlets and the foreseeing pandemic situation. Also, the contributory factor for the success of the Nexon EV is its decent driving range. With the Nexon EV and its 312 km ARAI range, means that you can make a non-stop Mumbai – Pune ride without stopping to charge as India is lagging behind in charging technology, so a longer-range EV means less range anxiety and peace of mind.
Tata Motors has consistently catered to the evolving needs of customers for electric cars with the introduction of best-selling in both the fleet (Tigor EV Electric Sedan, with a range of 140 km & 213 km) and personal segments (Nexon EV Electric SUV, with an anxiety-free range of 312 km on a single charge). Designed to offer thrilling, connected drive experience with zero emissions and at an attractive pricing, the Nexon EV has created a unique benchmark in its category. To popularise the access and use of Nexon EV in India, the company recently launched a novel Electric Vehicle subscription model, ideal for customers preferring ‘usership’ over ownership in the rapidly growing era of shared economy.
Speaking on this occasion Mr. Shailesh Chandra who heads the Passenger Vehicle Business as a President at Tata Motors Ltd. said, “Acceptance of EVs is accelerating fast, and we are seeing growing interest in it from all parts of the country. The rollout of the 1000th Nexon EV in a short time span, despite the challenges of Covid-19, reflects the rising interest of personal segment buyers in EVs. Tata Motors will continue to innovate and develop comprehensive sustainable mobility solutions meeting global standards. EVs are the future and as the industry leader, we are committed to make them desirable and a mainstream choice for the customers.”
