The Tata Nexon EV continues to expand its presence across India, exhibiting a significant growth across the southern region in India. Since its launch in January 2020, the company has registered a volume growth of over 300% in South India, commanding a market share of 77% YTD (FY21). The car is witnessing maximum acceptability in Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, across 20 cities. This compact electric SUV is being appreciated for its design, accessibility, performance, technology and above all, its lower operating costs. This growth is attributed to increased awareness of EVs, mushrooming charging infrastructure, encouraging government incentives, busting of myths that surround EVs along with the undisputed benefits that the vehicle offers.
