New Delhi: Tata crossed the four crore mark for the Nexon exactly five years after the compact SUV was launched in September 2017. To celebrate the occasion, Tata Motors has also launched the XZ+(L) variant at Rs 11.38 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Nexon became India’s best-selling SUV in FY2022 (April 2021–March 2022) and maintains the lead in the April–August 2022 quarter.
The Nexon took 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 in the next eight months. The last 1,00,000 units took just seven months.
The availability of various powertrain options – including an electric car – its status as the first Indian car to score five stars in the Global NCAP crash tests for adult protection, multiple editions with distinctive cosmetic enhancements are some of the reasons behind the Nexon’s popularity in the compact SUV segment.
