Retail sales of Tata Motors premium arm Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) also saw a dip of 37.6 per cent in the third quarter compared to the previous year, though the production volume increased by 41 per cent sequentially.

The automaker has attributed the loss to ongoing semiconductor shortage as well as the rising price of commodities. “The semiconductor shortage is expected to continue through 2022 but is expected to gradually improve as capacity within the supply base increases," said Tata Motors. The company said the chip crisis is likely to plague the industry this year as well and the situation will improve as the capacity within the supply base increases. Jaguar Land Rover said it is working with first-tier suppliers and chip manufacturers to secure long term supply.
