Tiago EV, Nexon EV help Tata Motors clock highest ever EV sales in April
Tata Motors continues to lead the passenger electric four-wheeler segment in India. In April, the carmaker sold 6,516 units of electric cars, which includes the likes of Tiago EV, Nexon EV and Tigor EV. This is the highest ever sales recorded by the carmaker in the EV segment. It has bettered its previous record of 6,506 units clocked in the previous month. Tata Motors currently leads the electric passenger car segment by a huge margin over its rivals like MG Motor, Hyundai Motor and others.
The jump in sales has been a massive 179 per cent compared to April last year thanks to the introduction of the Tiago EV late last year. In April last year, Tata Motors electric vehicles had found 2,333 homes across India. Tata Motors' EV sales contributed to more than 13 per cent of its overall sales in April. This is the highest EV ratio for any carmaker selling electric cars in India.
Tiago EV is the latest addition in Tata Motors' electric car portfolio in India. Introduced last year, the Tiago EV is one of the most affordable electric vehicle in the country with prices starting from ₹8.69 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to ₹11.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The MG Comet EV, which was launched last month at an introductory price of ₹7.98 lakh (ex-showroom) is the only EV that costs less than Tiago EV currently.
