Tata Motors have been posting impressive sales numbers lately and May 2021 was no different as it continued to be the third most sold carmaker in the country behind Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai. Part of Tata’s success has been down to its latest crop of vehicles like Altroz and Safari along with the facelifted Tiago, Tigor and Nexon.

In comparison to the previous month of April 2021 with 25,095 units, the brand registered a Month-on-Month negative growth of 40 per cent.

Tata also increased their market share last month to 14.7 per cent. The Nexon was the highest seller within the brand’s domestic portfolio and it was also among the top ten passenger vehicles sold in May 2021. The compact SUV posted 6,439 units as against 623 units during the same period last year with 933 per cent YoY growth.
