Tata Motors' Tiago, the latest hatchback launched in April, has been doing healthy sales with monthly unit averaging over 3,000 units. Now the first hatchback bearing Impact design language of the company has reportedly crossed bookings of 23,000.
According to a report in ET Auto, in its third month, the Tiago outsells every other model from the Tata stable. International Business Times, India also got the confirmed news that the waiting period for the Tiago currently stands up to three months.
Out of total bookings, about 80 percent are for the petrol variants of the Tiago. The petrol variants are priced in the range of Rs. 3.2 lakh to Rs. 4.75 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. At that price point, the Tiago makes a compelling case and the increased bookings underline it.
