Tata Motors has announced that it has produced over 2 lakh units of Tata Nexon in less than 4 years of the vehicle's launch. The 2,00,000th unit of the highly popular SUV was rolled out from the homegrown company’s Ranjangaon manufacturing facility whilst adhering to safety protocols and hygiene norms. It must be noted here that the rollout of the 2,00,000th Nexon has taken place merely 6 months after the carmaker announced the production of the 1,50,000th vehicle in November 2020. The Nexon is among the top 3 highest selling compact SUVs, in India and the company celebrates a new milestone in the brand’s journey as it grows in its popularity every month. Please find attached and enclosed the press release on this announcement.
The Tata Nexon was introduced in the Indian market in 2017. It didn’t take long for the good-looking car to garner a substantial amount of fame in the industry. One of the main reasons behind its popularity amongst enthusiasts is the fact that it is the first Indian car to earn a 5-star Global NCAP safety rating (2018). Tata Motors knew that it had nailed it with the Nexon as it recorded a sales figure of 1 lakh units in over a year since the launch of the SUV. From there onwards, it was no looking back and by November 2020, over 1.5 lakh units of the Nexon have found homes in various Indian families. The last 50,000 units were rolled out in a matter of just 6 months, in spite of poor market conditions due to the pandemic.
The latest model of the Tata Nexon is available in two engine options. There is a 1.2L 3-cylinder turbo-petrol that produces 120 PS of maximum power at 5500 rpm and 170 Nm of peak torque at 1750-4000 rpm. Tata Motors also provides a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbo-diesel that is capable of delivering 110 PS of maximum power at 4000 rpm and a healthy 260 Nm of peak torque that kicks in at 1500-2750 rpm. As for the transmission, both the engines are available with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed AMT.
There are a plethora of Tata Nexon variants to pick from. The price of the SUV starts at INR 7.19 lakh* for the base XE variant of the petrol model, and it goes all the way up to INR 12.95 lakh* for which you can buy the range-topping XZA+ DT(O) diesel AMT model.
