Tata’s EV has quite a few reasons behind its comparatively higher sales. It should be noted here that the numbers are nowhere impressive but only higher than the competitors.

The reason behind the comparatively higher sales is the accessibility factor of the car. The Tata Nexon EV is manufactured in a plant located in Pune. This makes the car much more accessible than the other two.

The other reason behind the higher number of sales can be said to be the Tata Nexon badge. Nexon has already won the Indian hearts with its cars and the consumers already know what to expect from the car.

Price factor has always been one of the primary factors in the Indian car bazaar. The price of the Tata Nexon is significantly lower than the other two. However, it should be noted that the other two cars are much bigger than Tata Nexon.

Electric vehicles are gradually making their presence felt in the Indian markets. Although, the manufacturers and the experts have been echoing a concern. The infrastructure upgrade, as well as the grants for making electric vehicles, should be looked into.
