The Zoho CEO took to Twitter admiring the Tata Nexon EV and how it is aptly serving the purpose as far as commutes to nearby cities are concerned.
Zoho CEO, Sridhar Vembu is quite an EV admirer. Last year in December he purchased a new Mahindra Treo Electric and even took to Twitter suggesting to Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra & Mahindra a few improvements in the electric three-wheeler. He has now added a brand-new Tata Nexon EV to his garage and seems pretty much impressed with his new drive. The Zoho CEO again took to Twitter admiring the Tata Nexon EV and how it is aptly serving the purpose as far as commutes to nearby cities are concerned.
I purchased a Tata Nexon EV for driving to nearby cities. It offers a very pleasant driving experience and particularly I like the handling. It is clear why this is the top selling EV in India. I am proud of @TataMotors for delivering this beautifully engineered vehicle. ???? pic.twitter.com/qHJgFl4JkS

“I purchased a Tata Nexon EV for driving to nearby cities. It offers a very pleasant driving experience and particularly I like the handling. It is clear why this is the top selling EV in India. I am proud of Tata Motors for delivering this beautifully engineered vehicle,” Vembu wrote in his tweet.
In the last two years, Tata Motors has sold over 13,500 units of the all-electric subcompact SUV in India. In fact, till April 2021, the company had sold just 4,000 units of the EV and then recorded over two-fold growth in just over nine months, selling additional 9,000 units of the Nexon EV. The Tata Nexon EV has been the best-selling electric car in India so far and accounts for an average of about 1000 units a month. It was the first electric vehicle launched by Tata Motors for private car buyers and was a runaway success. For the longest time, it was the most affordable EV for private car buyers, until recently, when Tata Motors launched the Tigor EV. At present, the Nexon EV is priced in India between ₹ 14.29 lakh and ₹ 16.90 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
