The Tata Nexon EV was launched in India earlier this year. It has been just over 6 months and the demand for the electric car is already on the rise as the company has produced 1,000 units so far.
Tata Motors rolled out the 1,000th unit of the Nexon EV from its manufacturing facility in Pune on Tuesday, 18 August 2020. Acknowledged as the most preferred electric car in India, the Tata Nexon EV is the best seller in its segment and has helped the company post a market share of 62% in EVs in the Q1 of FY21.
Speaking on this momentous occasion, Shailesh Chandra, President – Passenger Vehicle Business, Tata Motors Ltd. said:
Acceptance of electric vehicles is accelerating fast and we are seeing growing interest in it from all parts of the country.
