According to the press statement, these products are designed and engineered to cater to the evolving needs of cargo and people’s transport across segments and applications. These state-of-the-art vehicles further enhance Tata Motors’ established ‘Power of 6’ benefit proposition to address specific usage and applications while delivering higher productivity and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

Major headwinds for Tata Motors in the commercial vehicles space continue to be the chip shortage, which according to Wagh is likely to continue for a few more quarters. “We have not been spared by the chip shortage. We are trying to reduce the use of semiconductors wherever possible, going for alternative sourcing, going for variants requiring lesser amounts of semiconductors. We are keeping a watch on the entire segment and working on the mitigation strategy” said Wagh.
