Looks like Tata Motors is deploying the same aggressive approach it has in the domestic market to its export operations. The company has, along with its distributor, Tata Africa Holdings (Tanzania) Ltd (TAHTL) commercially launched the Nexon compact SUV and the Hexa crossover in Tanzania.
Launched at an introductory price of TZS 45 million (XMA variant) for the Nexon and TZS 81 million and TZS 89 million for the Hexa XT 4x4 and XTA Automatic version respectively, both SUVs will be available across the company’s authorised dealerships, starting today, under attractive finance options.
