Tata Motors passenger car segment achieves a new record milestone today
To date, Tata Motors has produced 4 million passenger vehicles in India. And in taking a cue from Avengers Endgame’s ‘I love you 3,000’, are now running the ‘We Love You 4 Million’ campaign. The messaging is for the manufacturers customer base.
Since this journey began many a moon ago, the brand acknowledges the role played by Indica, Sierra, Sumo, Safari and Nano in the shaping post economic liberalisation era business. Tata says ‘these iconic vehicles’ broke barriers across categories in the Indian automobile sector.
Tata Safari launch pioneered the idea of ‘lifestyle SUV’ in the Indian auto industry, and was an four-wheeler for customers. In honouring Sumant Moolgaonkar’s legacy, Tata Sumo MPV was introduced. Indica shaped how a passenger vehicle is received.
Tata Cars Today
In recent years, the manufacturer’s new age vehicles comprise Tiago and Nexon, both of which have been high volume cars for Tata Motors. Currently its product portfolio comprises of Tiago, Tigor, Nexon, Harrier and Altroz. Next on, the 7-seat Harrier variant is expected for launch as well as a mini crossover called HBX.
Tata Motors has also the small volume EV segment and enjoys 67 percent market share. The 4 million production units journey saw the company reach its 1 million production mark for passenger vehicles in 2005-06. The 3 million mark was reached in 2015, and 4 million production milestone, this month.
3 decades of business mean there’s been multi category development over time. This includes product development, and also modern day manufacturing protocols and technology adaption in all aspects of business. Tata Motors says it’s the first homegrown auto manufacturer to have developed indigenous capabilities from design, development, validation and manufacturing stages, along with streamlined sales and service operations.
