Commenting on this occasion, Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Limited & Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited said, “Witnessing the first car roll out of the new TPEM facility in Sanand is a proud moment for us. We have successfully retooled the factory in the shortest span of 12 months, taking it to new level to accommodate a wide range of existing products and future new models to come. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the Government of Gujarat for its wholesome support and our employees without whom this accomplishment would not have been possible. I am confident that this facility will play a pivotal role in steering Tata Motors, especially TPEM, towards achieving newer feats.”

New Sanand facility was acquired from from Ford India early last year.


The new facility is Tata’s second in Gujarat as well as the Sanand region and will produce both internal combustion and all-electric vehicles from the carmaker’s line-up. The new plant adds a further 3 lakh unit per annum production capacity to Tata’s overall passenger vehicle production capacity which should go a big way in helping to reduce waiting periods as well as making room for its upcoming models. Production at the plant can also be scaled up to 4.20 lakh units.
