Tata posted 42,295 units in March 2022, an increase of 43% YoY over 29,655 units in the same period of 2021.

Tata Motors continued to rank third in the overall manufacturer’s sales position in March 2022 as 42,295 units were sold against 29,655 units in the same period of 2021 which increased YoY sales by 43 per cent. The brand endured a YoY volume increase of 6 percent, compared to 39,980 units in the previous month of February 2022.

Domestic makers beat Mahindra, Kia, Toyota, Renault, Honda, Skoda, MG and others, closing in on Hyundai, which was in second place with only 2,305 units. Tata held 13.2 percent market share last month. The automotive industry as a whole has endured almost flat YoY growth compared to March 2021 with a 6 percent MoM growth registered.

The brand has consistently outperformed the industry with good reception for products such as Nexon, Ultroz, Punch and Tiago. The Punch micro SUV debuted in the market last year and is well-received by consumers and is currently one of the top sellers, along with its older brother, the Nexon compact SUV.

In 2021, Tata also launched the updated Tigor EV while the Nexon EV is currently the best-selling passenger car in the country. The long-range version of the electric SUV, with a claimed drive range of more than 400 kilometers and a larger battery back, is expected to go on sale in the coming weeks. The company is also working on a mid-size SUV coupe based on the Nexon.

It will compete with Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, VW Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, MG Astor and Nissan Kicks in its ICE incarnation. However, the electric version of the medium-sized SUV coupe will be launched sometime next year before the petrol and diesel versions debut. Tata is currently building three EV platforms, including a dedicated skateboard.

A few months ago, Tata announced a new subsidiary known as TPEML (Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited) with a huge investment and it will give birth to a total of ten electric vehicles in the next half decade, including the reported Sierra EV.
