Tata Motors launched its new hatchback Tiago in April bearing Impact design language for the first time. The response for Tiago has been healthy and it continues to post volume sales for the Mumbai-based manufacturer. In the month of October, Tiago posted its best ever monthly sales crossing 6,000 units -- the first for a Tata car in over three years.
Tata Motors sold 6,108 units of Tiago in October, reports Rushlane. The last time a Tata vehicle found more than 6,000 units sale in a month was in January 2013 with Indica and Vista which clocked 7,321 units. Riding on Tiago, Tata Motors reported sales of 16,311 units with 28 percent growth in October, against 12,747 units sold in October 2015. This also helped Tata Motors to improve its position in PV sales to third beating Honda Car India.
Tata Motors sold 4,557 units of Tiago in September. In August, the sales of the hatchback stood at 4,527 units. In April, May, June and July, the corresponding figures were 3,022, 3,287, 4,205 and 5,114 units, respectively. Tiago found 4,205 takers in June making it the first model in Tata's stable to exceed the monthly sales of 4,000 units in the past two years.
The hatchback has received over 50,000 bookings in a short span of time in which around 25,000 units have been delivered. Emerging reports indicate that Tata Motors is planning to ramp up production of Tiago at the Gujarat plant to reduce the waiting period that currently stands up to three to four months.
Priced from Rs 3.20 lakh to Rs 4.88 lakh for petrol variants and from Rs 3.94 lakh to Rs 5.67 lakh for diesel variants, ex-showroom Delhi, Tiago is sold in 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron petrol and 1.05-litre three-cylinder Revotorq diesel.
The petrol mill churns out 83.8bhp of power at 6,000rpm and 114Nm of torque at 3,500rpm, while the diesel engine produces 69bhp of power at 4,000rpm and 140Nm of torque at 1,800-3,000rpm. Both the engines come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
