Tata Motors EV sales exhibit a massive boom in November
Tata Motors posted impressive sales figures in November 2021 across its verticals. Total domestic sales in November stood at 58,073 units, marking a Y-o-Y growth of 21%, from the 47,859 units mark of November 2020.

Tata has just two models in its current EV portfolio- the Nexon EV and Tigor EV. The electric Tigor, a recent launch, has garnered much acceptance in the country. This, along with the manufacturer’s initiative to set up charging stations all over the country, could be held responsible for this growth.

The recently launched Tata Punch micro SUV is in huge demand pan India, and recorded sales of 6,110 units in November. Despite having had an upward revision in its prices (ranging from Rs 1,000-11,000 across variants), Tata Nexon continued to be the best seller for the manufacturer. Other popular nameplates last month were Tiago, Altroz, Safari, and Tigor.
On a month-on-month basis, Tata motors sales exhibited a decline of 12.22%. The October numbers in the PV space were 33,925 units, apparently due to the festive season boom in customer demands. EV sales however have had a slight leap up from the October numbers.
