Tata Motors has entered the lucrative and India's favorite subcompact SUV segment with the launch of the Nexon. The Nexon has received a tremendous response with waiting period stretching to two months.
To address the increased demand for the Nexon, a report by Moneycontrol states that Tata Motors is gearing up to increase the production of the SUV and decrease the waiting period.
The company has produced nearly 3,000 units of the Nexon on an average in the last two months and will now increase it to 6,000 units per month. The Nexon has become the second best-selling car for Tata Motors after the success of the Tiago hatchback.

Tata Motors launched the Nexon with an intention to grab a significant market share in the compact SUV segment, where Maruti Brezza is the best-selling vehicle. Ford too has launched the facelifted EcoSport with an aim to reclaim its crown as the leader of the segment.
The Nexon is designed with unique styling and follows Tata Motors' new IMPACT design philosophy that is seen in the Tiago, Hexa and the Tigor. The Nexon also boasts of premium interiors and equipment such as the floating touchscreen infotainment system along with Harman music system and several connectivity features.
The Nexon is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. While the petrol engine is a 1.2-litre producing 108.5bhp and 170Nm of torque, the 1.5-litre diesel unit develops 108.5bhp and 260Nm of torque. Both the engines come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The Tata Nexon seems to have captured the imagination of car buyers in India, and the waiting period reflects the same. Now that Tata Motors is planning to increase the production, the waiting period for the Nexon is bound to decrease.
