The Tata Nexon has had quite a successful run in India and is one of those vehicles which have helped Tata Motors better its PV market share selling over 4000 units every month. The company has rolled out 100,000 units of the Nexon from the Ranjangaon plant and the new production milestone has been achieved in less than 22 months. The Tata Nexon was launched in India in September 2017 and the company has introduced several special editions of it since then like the Kraz Edition, Aero Edtion and IPL Edition.
