Tata Motors on Tuesday said the Sanand facility, which has so far rolled out 4.50 lakh units, will achieve 5 lakh production mark in October this year.

Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors said the plant contributes to 60% of the overall PV production.

The automobile company said the facility has reached 100% capacity utilisation to meet the growing demand for both its Tiago and Tigor cars.

Pareek said, "We have been aggressively working towards our core strategy of Turnaround 2.0, which consists of three pillars - sales enhancement, cost reduction and operational efficiency. A lean manufacturing process plays a key role in our growth strategy enabling the Sanand plant to contribute around 60% of the overall PV production."

From producing 400 vehicles a day, by the end of this fiscal year, it aims to touch 500 vehicles a day.

The Sanand plant has also produced the first electric passenger vehicle for commercial use in the form of Tigor EV and it will continue delivering EVs.

The facility has evolved from a single model to a multi-model flexible plant producing 21 variants with 150 vehicle combinations.

Located about 35km from Ahmedabad, the Sanand plant, which was established in 2010, is spread across 1,100 acres with workforce of 4,500 employees.

Four star rating

Pareek also said that Tata Nexon has received a 4 star rating in the latest round of Global NCAP crash tests of Indian made cars.
