Tata Motors has recorded an increase of more than 20 per cent in its passenger vehicle sales in September. The carmaker sold 25,730 units last month, compared to 21,199 units it sold during the same period last year.

One of the significant aspects in Tata Motors' rise in sales has been the electric vehicle business. Despite all the infrastructure challenges, Tata Motors' EV business has grown almost three-fold within the last 12 months.

Tata Motors said that it sold 1,078 units of electric vehicles last month, up from a mere 308 units of EV sold in September last year. Tata Motors currently offers its popular SUV Nexon and subcompact sedan Tigor in electrified form. The carmaker launched the new generation Tigor EV last month at a starting price of 11.99 lakh, making it the most affordable electric car in India. It also was given a four-star rating as the first Indian electric car to pass the Global NCAP crash tests.
