Tata has announced the roll-out of the 50,000th Nexon at its plant in Ranjangaon. This landmark has been achieved in less than a year since the compact SUV’s launch in September 2017.
The Nexon has been quite a success for the Indian brand, having helped sales figures considerably. Despite many other carmakers posting a decline in sales growth in July 2018, the compact SUV was one of the models that helped Tata post a growth of 14 percent over its sales last year. In May 2018, the Nexon helped Tata to quadruple its UV market share, which increased by 5.62 percent.
Since Tata’s launch of the compact SUV last year, the Nexon saw the introduction of the AMT-equipped model in 2018 – first only in the top-spec XZA+ trim and then later in the lower-spec XMA trim. The brand also upgraded the software on the compact SUV’s infotainment system recently; it now features AppleCarPlay in addition to the previously available Android Auto.
Recently, the Nexon also managed to get a four-star rating in the latest round of the Global NCAP crash tests, making it one of the safer and yet affordable cars in India.
