    Tata Nexon reaches 2 lakh-unit production milestone

    Tata Motors has rolled out the 200,000th Nexon compact SUV from its Ranjangaon plant in Pune, Maharashtra. Launched on September 21, 2017, at Rs 5.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Nexon has taken a little less than four years, or 46 months to be precise, to cross the production milestone.

    The Nexon raced past the 50,000-unit production milestone in September 2018, and zipped past the 1,00,000-units mark on August 31, 2019. The 1,50,000th Nexon was rolled out in 39 months, on November 5, 2020. Since then, the last 50,000 units have been recorded in less than seven months, with demand outpacing supply and production limited due to the pandemic.

    The Nexon is among the top three, highest selling compact SUVs in India. In March 2021, Nexon sales hit a monthly high of 8,683 units. As per our sister publication Autocar Professional’s statistics till end-March 2021, the Tata Nexon has sold a total of 1,93,376 units, comprising 1,89,285 petrol and diesel variants as well as 4,091 Nexon EVs.

Since the compact SUV’s launch in 2017, Tata Motors has constantly upgraded the Nexon for safety, GNCAP certification, design, regulations, emissions and segment-defining feature additions. It is now available in 20 variants, including 12 in petrol and 8 in diesel, with automatic and manual transmission options. Tata recently discontinued a few diesel variants from the Nexon’s line-up. The carmaker will also introduce a new Dark Edition of the Nexon EV soon.
