Tata Motors has been posting good sales volume in the second half of the year and it regularly ended up as the third largest carmaker in the country with appreciable reception for the Nexon, Altroz, Tiago and Harrier. The homegrown manufacturer garnered a total of 23,546 units as against 12,785 units with a huge 84 per cent volume growth.
In early 2020, Tata introduced the facelifted Nexon, Tiago and Tigor alongside the all-new Altroz premium hatchback and the Nexon EV in India. The zero-emission Nexon finished the last calendar year on a high with 2,529 units as it swept 63.2 per cent EV market share ahead of MG ZS EV, Hyundai Kona Electric, Tata Tigor EV and Mahindra eVerito.
The Nexon finished on top of the sales charts in the month of December 2020 as 6,835 units were sold against 4,350 units during the same period in 2019 with 57 per cent YoY growth. The Altroz’s volumes are steadily increasing despite high competition from Maruti Suzuki Baleno and recently launched third generation Hyundai i20.
