Tata Motors launched its SUV the Hexa in Nepal, nearly 10 months after the model was launched in India. The Hexa, the lifestyle SUV has been priced at NPR 77.95 lakh (Rs 48.75 lakh) in Nepal.
The Hexa was launched in India starting at Rs 11.99 lakh. The price difference is due to local taxes in Nepal on imported cars. In Nepal, the Hexa will be available only in the range-topping XT 4x4 variant with a manual transmission. Tata has also delivered the first batch of 11 units of the new Hexa to customers in Nepal.
"At Tata Motors we have always been at the fore-front of providing a rich and dynamic product experience to our customers through our product innovations and the new Tata Hexa reinforces this commitment. We understand that our customers in Nepal are aspiring for more stylish, lifestyle oriented products and the Tata Hexa is an important step in catering to these emerging customer needs. We are confident that this complete package will be an instant hit in a highly popular but immensely competitive segment and will surely excite the new-age customers of Nepal," said Tata Motors Managing Director and CEO Guenter Butschek.
