    Tata Motors’ blockbuster compact SUV, the Nexon, has crossed the 5,00,000 unit production milestone. The Nexon has achieved this feat in 67 months.

    The 5,00,000th Nexon rolled out from Tata Motors’ Ranjangaon plant on April 11, 2023, around six years after its launch on September 21, 2017. Given the increasing demand for the Nexon, which is India’s bestselling compact SUV and mass market EV, it is not surprising that the timeline for successive production milestones keep getting shorter.

    4,00,000September 22, 20227 months
    5,00,000April 11th, 20236.5 months

    The last 1,00,000 unit milestone has come up in a scant six-and-a-half months. This is a fortnight less than it took to achieve the 4,00,000 unit record, and 45 days less than the 3,00,000 mark. The 3,00,000th unit of the Nexon was produced on February 28, 2022, eight months after the 2,00,000th unit, which itself was achieved 46 months since the compact SUV's launch.

    Tata Nexon: what’s next?

    The Nexon is currently sold in as many as 69 variants – 47 petrol, 10 diesel and 12 electric, with automatic and manual transmission options, depending on powertrain. Further on, sources tell us that there will be some product upgrades for the Nexon EV in the coming weeks, with a major facelift for the entire line-up in the works. The facelifted Nexon will borrow a lot of styling elements inside out with the Curvv SUV, and will go on sale later this year.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!
