Tata Motors Witnesses Marginal Dip in Passenger Car Sales

The domestic passenger car sales of Tata Motors have seen a fall of two per cent for the month of September 2015. In a similar period last year, the company had sold 11931 units while this year, the sales were limited to 11774 units.

The sales of the company are likely to see a revival with the launch of new products. The GenX Nano as well as the Bolt Hatchback did act as a sales boost for the company and were the reason for the respectable figures from the company. In fact, when it comes to the small car segment, there was an actual jump in sales with number going up from 9766 units in September 2014 to 10226 units in September 2015. However, the sales of the utility vehicles appear to have taken a significant hit of 28 per cent and only 1548 units were sold by the company in the last month.

Tata is pinning its hopes on the Tata Kite and the Hexa MUV to bring about a much needed sales boost for the company. While the former is a hatchback that has been positioned in between the Nano and the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10, the latter is to take on the Renault Lodgy and the Toyota Innova. The Kite is to be launched in January 2016 while the Hexa MUV will be seen first at the 2016 Auto Expo. Tata will be relying on these for their growth in the next year.
