Tata Nexon and Punch were the best-selling SUVs in India in FY23-24

If you are someone who actively keeps an eye on the Indian automotive sales figures to see how companies and their models are performing, you have probably observed that the Tata Nexon has been the best-selling SUV in the last couple of years. Tata has now revealed that the Nexon sub-4m SUV was crowned the best-selling SUV for the FY23-24 period, completing its hat-trick. Sweetening the year for Tata’s FY23-24 sales was the fact that the Tata Punch was the second best-selling SUV in the country.

Note: The sales numbers throughout the story for each model include the figures for the Tata Nexon EV and Tata Punch EV as well.

Tata Nexon And Punch: A Quick Recap

Tata Nexon

The Tata Nexon was introduced in the market in 2017 and has been given two midlife refreshes since – one in early 2020 and the other in September 2023. With the latest and most thorough refresh, the sub-4m SUV has got sharper looks along with modern and premium features such as two 10.25-inch displays (one for infotainment and the other for instrumentation), a 9-speaker JBL sound system, a 360-degree camera, and six airbags. It also got two new transmission options with the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol unit: 5-speed MT and 7-speed DCT (dual-clutch automatic transmission).

Similar design and feature updates were applied to the Nexon EV as well which got its first major refresh alongside the facelifted Nexon in 2023. However, it gets the bigger 12.3-inch touchscreen unit from the new Harrier-Safari duo. There was no change for the specifications of the battery pack, but the powertrains have been optimised further and now offers a claimed range of up to 465 km.

Tata registered 1 lakh unit sales of the Nexon in August 2019, while the same feat for the Punch was achieved in August 2022. By December 2023, the Indian marque had shipped 6 lakh units of the Nexon (Nexon EV units included).
