Of the one million Tata cars sold in India in the last 15 years, over half a million have been Indicas, over three lakh Sumos, over one lakh Indigo & Indigo Marinas, and over 26,000 Safaris.
Tata Motors is India’s second largest Passenger Vehicle player in the domestic market. Starting with the Tata Sierra and the Tata Estate in 1991, the company launched the Tata Sumo in 1994, the Tata Safari, India’s first thoroughbred sports utility vehicle, and the Tata Indica, India’s first fully indigenous car, in 1998, the Tata Indigo in 2002 and the Tata Indigo Marina in 2004. All the five models currently in the company’s product portfolio have defined new segments on launch, and continue to be in leading positions in their respective segments.
Besides India, Tata Motors has made significant inroads abroad. The company’s Passenger Vehicles are already being marketed in Europe, Africa, and South Asia.
