There was a time when monthly car sales of Tata Motors was at about 30,000 units, and it was in the top 3 car brands of the country. But that time was long ago. Tata Motors car sales in India continue to decline in recent months.

After posting their lowest ever monthly sales of less than 7,500 units Aug 2019, sales in Sep 2019 also remain subdued. For Sep 2019, sales of Tata Motors have barely crossed the 8k mark.

Their best selling new cars, Tiago, Nexon, Tigor, Harrier failed to attract buyers, inspite of the launch of exciting discount offers, new PRO package, extended 5 yr warranty options, etc. In Sep 2019, Renault India has beaten Tata Motors in sales for the first time in many years. Below is the detailed car sales report for Sep 2019.
