Overcoming the challenges, Tata Motors posted record-breaking monthly sales (June’22) as well as quarterly sales (Q1 FY23).”
Tata Motor’s SUV portfolio contributed 68% of Q1FY23 sales. Chandra added that, “Electric vehicle sales attained new heights with quarterly sales of 9,283 in Q1 FY23 and highest-ever monthly sales of 3,507 units in June 22.”
The Nexon EV Max launched in May has witnessed strong demand. Going forward, Chandra expects, “the supply side, including that of critical electronic components to progressively improve. We will continue to keep a close watch on the evolving demand and supply situation and take appropriate actions.”
