The Tata Nexon SUV has achieved a major production milestone today. The carmaker has rolled out the 2,00,000th Nexon SUV from its Ranjangaon plant in Pune. It took Tata Motors almost six months to manufacture 50,000 units of the Nexon due to restrictions imposed in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, otherwise the Nexon could have hit this landmark much earlier.
Tata Nexon achieved the milestone of 150,000 units in November last year. It has been one of the best selling cars of Tata Motors over the years. In fact, Nexon broke into the top 10 selling cars in India last month. The sub-compact SUV was sold to 6,439 customers and finished fourth in the list. Earlier in March, the sales of Nexon had set a new record of 8,683 units in a month.
Nexon first launched in 2017
Tata Nexon is one of the first cars in India to achieve 5 star safety rating in crash tests conducted by Global NCAP. Nexon was first launched in 2017. Tata currently offers the Nexon SUV in 20 variants. The range includes 12 variants in petrol and 8 variants in diesel with automatic and manual transmission options.
Tata has recently increased the prices of the Nexon SUV. Going by the previous price hike, the Nexon costs around Rs 10,000 more for the base model. The XE variant, which used to cost ₹ 7.09 lakh (ex-showroom), is now priced at ₹ 7.19 lakh (ex-showroom). On the other hand, the top-spec trim XZA+ (O) Dual Tone variant will cost Rs 12.95 lakh (ex-showroom), as against Rs 12.79 lakh (ex-showroom) before the hike was implemented.
Tata had to issue a media statement on Wednesday, clarifying that the diesel variant will not be discontinued completely. Tata believes that there is still a strong demand for diesel engines in the sub-compact SUV.
