Earlier this week, we had reported that Tata Motors had discontinued a few diesel variants of the Nexon. These included the XE, XMA, XZ, and XZA+ (S) trims.
According to the company, this had fuelled rumours about the Nexon diesel range being discontinued altogether. Therefore, Tata Motors has now issued an official statement to put an end to all speculations.
"Reportage published on some media platforms has led to rumors about Tata Motors discontinuing its Nexon diesel range. Tata Motors clarifies that: The Tata Nexon is among the most popular compact SUVs in India and its diesel variant is very popular with a growing demand and a loyal following. To simplify the choices for its customers, Tata Motors has opted to discontinue select variants and introduced updates in others. The Nexon is now available in 20 variants offering customers an exciting product proposition at different price points and the most choice in the compact SUV segment. The Nexon's range includes 12 variants in petrol and 8 variants in diesel with automatic and manual transmissions options. In keeping with its brand promise of 'New Forever' and with the objective to offer more value to customers, Tata Motors refines and refreshes its portfolio of trims and variants from time to time in line with market feedback."
