Tata Motors has hit a new milestone, the home-grown carmaker recently announced that the brand’s most popular model, the Tata Nexon compact SUV, has gone to become the first Indian car to get published on the IDIS (International Dismantling Information System) in End-of-Life Vehicles (ELV) segment.
What is IDIS?
- IDIS is a central repository of ‘Manufacturer Compiled Information’. Over 25 global car manufacturers from over 40 countries across Asia and Europe use this platform.
- The Tata Nexon has become the first Indian car to join this elite group.
How will this benefit us?
- Tata Motors has agreed on providing all relevant information for responsible vehicle handling, starting with information about draining automotive fluids, the neutralization of airbags and seat belt tensioners and all the way up to the dismantling of components containing particularly hazardous substances.
- These recommendations will benefit the Indian AVSF (Authorised Vehicle Scrapping Facilities) to undertake more environmental friendly dismantling practices.
- This will also help us take another step forward towards a cleaner and greener environment.
- It also complements the government’s initiative towards Vehicle Scrappage Policy.
Speaking on this achievement, President and CTO, Tata Motors, Rajendra Petkar added a few points.
- Tata Motors has always been committed to following sustainable practices.
- All Tata products have high levels of recyclability potential to minimise material waste.
- Tata has restricted itself from using hazardous substances to a bare minimum.
- The brand is laying down the path for responsible dismantling and recycling at the vehicle’s end of life stage.
What Powers the Tata Nexon?
- Under its hood, India’s most affordable SUV makes use of a 1.2-L turbocharged Revotron petrol engine churning 120 PS with 170 Nm of peak torque.
- We also get to see a 1.5-L turbocharged Revotorq diesel engine which makes 110 PS with 260 Nm of peak torque.
- Both the engine hold an ARAI approved mileage of 17.4 kmpl and 22.4 kmpl. respectively.
