Planning To Own A Tata EV? Get Ready For Higher Waiting Period

Added in: News

Recently, petrol and diesel prices received a slash which brought some relief to the country. However, one cannot deny that EVs are indeed the future and the transition is already underway. Tata Motors is at the top of the game when it comes to EV sales. The Nexon EV is currently the best-selling EV in the market and the recently launched Tigor EV received a good response as well. However, the waiting period for these EVs is set to go up due to the various challenges faced by the industry.

How long will you have to wait?

The waiting period for Nexon EV and Tigor EV has gone up by at least a month. The rise in fuel prices has driven the demand for EVs quite exponentially and the increase in the prices of raw materials doesn’t help the case either. More importantly, the infamous semiconductor chip shortage seems to have impacted the sales of these EVs. Though a month’s waiting period doesn’t seem too bad, one should prepare it to increase if the situation doesn’t get any better.
