Tata Nexon EV buyers facing waiting period of up to six months: Report


Tata Nexon EV is one of the most popular electric cars in the country. The popularity has given rise to a long waiting period for buyers in the country. Nexon EV buyers are reportedly dealing with a waiting period of up to six months. Given that EVs lag far behind in terms of overall volumes, this waiting period reflects a paradigm shift in demand.

According to a report by Autocar India, the waiting period for the Nexon EV is up to six months. This high waiting period can also be attributed to general supply issues. The company’s ICE-powered vehicles are also seeing huge demand but short supply. Semiconductor shortage is plaguing the Indian automotive industry.

Tata Nexon EV performance since launch

Recently, Tata Motors announced that they have managed to sell over 13,500 units of the Tata Nexon EV since its launch in 2020.

One is the Nexon EV and the other is the Tigor EV, which costs even less.

Tata Nexon EV Range

It is important to note that the base variants of Nexon EV and ICE-powered Nexon will have wide differences.
