    Tata has surpassed the four lakh production mark for the Nexon exactly five years after the compact SUV’s launch in September 2017. Celebrating the occasion, Tata Motors also launched the XZ+(L) variant at Rs 11.38 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

    The Nexon became India’s bestselling SUV in FY2022 (April 2021-March 2022), and maintains the lead in April-August 2022 quarter too. It took the Nexon one year and 10 months to reach its first production milestone of 1,00,000 units; another year and 11 months later, it reached the 2,00,000 milestone, with the 3,00,000 milestone coming up in the next eight months. The last 1,00,000 units has taken just seven months. 

    The availability of multiple powertrain options – including an EV – its status of being the first Indian car to achieve five stars in Global NCAP crash tests for adult protection, multiple editions with distinct cosmetic add-ons are some of the reasons behind the Nexon’s popularity in the compact SUV segment.

It gets equipment like a wireless charger, an air purifier and ventilated seats and is available with both petrol, diesel engines and manual, AMT gearboxes.

Coming to Tata’s launches this month, the carmaker will introduce the Camo Edition of the Punch on September 22 and will also launch the all-electric Tiago on September 28.
