Positive market sentiments post the GST regime, government funding in infrastructure development and restrictions on overloading with a higher demand of high tonnage vehicles contributed to the growth story.
In Passenger Vehicles business, new products like Tiago, Tigor and Hexa continue to drive sales momentum. Tata Nexon, the newly launched compact SUV has received overwhelming response from the market and added to the positive excitement.
Mr. Guenter Butschek, MD & CEO Tata Motors, said, “After a challenging first quarter, Tata Motors has demonstrated impressive results with month-on-month growth in sales and market share, enabled by a slew of new product launches and customer centric initiatives. With our turnaround plan in full action, we are seeing encouraging results and we will continue to drive sustainable profitable growth to meet our future aspirations.”
