The Tata Nexon has turned out to be a brisk seller for the automaker and the subcompact SUV has now achieved a new milestone. Tata Motors rolled out the 50,000th Nexon subcompact SUV from its Ranjangaon facility near Pune.

The automaker rolled out the 10,000th model in November 2017, and the company achieved the 25,000 production milestone in February this year. The 50,000th figure comes six months after. The Nexon averages about 4000 units every month and is currently the second most selling model in Tata's line-up after the Tiago.
The Tata Nexon has been appreciated for its powerful engines and feature rich cabin. The SUV comes with LED daytime running lights, projector lens headlamps, alloy wheels, height adjustable driver's seat and height adjustable seatbelts. The subcompact SUV is equipped with the floating touchscreen infotainment system that supports voice command, reverse camera, Android Auto and now Apple CarPlay as well.

More recently, Tata Motors - President, Mayank Pareek said that the company registered 50-50 sales for both the engine options, showcasing the market's shift towards petrol engines once again. Prices for the Nexon start at ₹ 6.15 lakh, going up to ₹ 10.59 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi) for the range topping diesel trim.
