“Tata Motors PV business growth journey continued and set several new milestones during the quarter despite witnessing a shortfall in production due to the ongoing semi-conductor crisis,” said Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors.

“The overwhelming market response to Tata Punch launched in October 21 is further boosting demand for the company`s `New Forever` range of cars and SUVs,” he added.

Chandra also said that the ever-increasing demand for Nexon EV and Tigor EV as well as progressive revival of the EV fleet segment were instrumental in driving this steep growth.

“Going forward, semiconductor supplies will remain the key source of uncertainty. Additionally, the impact of the new strain of Covid needs to be closely tracked. We will continue to work on business agility plan and take proactive actions to mitigate these risks,” Chandra said.
