Apologies for the confusion. I should have mentioned that my brother was looking at Tiago XZ diesel. Its between the diesel tiago and swift petrol.
Sorry for going OT, but just wanted to share the details. The Lxi(O) with optional comes with dual airbags, ABS. The onroad price currently is 5,96,000 and there is a consumer offer of 5K. We have been promised for some goodies which I can update once confirmed. Tiago diesel is a fantastic car in its segment no doubts, but when we did a back to back TD of tiago diesel and swift petrol last week (almost a month after booking of tiago) , it sealed the deal.

Default Re: Tata Motors aims for a top 3 spot in PV sales!

Tata might have set a realistic later date for achieving a podium position, but the sudden demonetisation process announced on Nov. 8 has presented a golden opportunity for them to grab the no. 3 spot in PV sales during the calendar year 2016 itself!

There are reports that new passenger vehicle sales are likely to see a drop of upto ~ 30% for a few months. It's no secret that vehicles preferred by buyers making full payments in cash are likely to be hit much harder than those bought by folks using other modes of payment. And it's no secret again that large sections of the black-moneyed horde prefer certain vehicles & certain kinds of vehicles, and that certain manufacturers have a solid buyer base in this group.

If Tata are smart enough to react to short term market trends, they would act fast and ramp up production of existing models (and also quickly introduce new models) that cater to the white-moneyed horde.

The demonetisation process is going to shake up the monthly sales chart beginning with the month of November 2016. There is going to be a lot of up & down movement in the mid field pack.

I, for one, would not be surprised in the least if Tata grab this opportunity with both hands and proudly step on to the podium in the month of November or December (2016) itself!

If they can pull it off, what a fabulous comeback it would be!

They have done it!!!

(And if I may take the liberty to beat my own drum, let me add with a wink - I told you so!)

Tata have managed to achieve a target they set for themselves for the year 2018 during the year 2016 itself!

Tata sold 12,736 units of passenger vehicles during the month of November 2016, while Mahindra sold 12,707 units during the same period, thereby taking over the No. 3 spot from the latter (Note: sold = factory sales, as is the case always).

What a meteoric, phoenix-like (re-)rise to the podium!

While they did get an unexpected shock boost from the demonetisation drive, the challenge for Tata would be to hold on to the hard-earned podium spot by releasing all the new models in their arsenal, one after the other, in order to keep their podium position and pull clear of the challengers.

However, that is for later. Tata can savour the joy of being among the top-three car manufacturers in India at the moment.

Congratulations & well done, Tata!!!

I hope TATA will be able to retain the no 3 spot. Amen

I also feel that this position will get stronger with Hexa launch and other three product of tata in pipeline.

The Tiago has been instrumental in achieving these numbers. Tata Motors sold 6,008 units of Tiago in November, and it figures in the top ten selling cars in this month.

Yes, while the Zest & Bolt managed to halt Tata's slide, it's the Tiago that's doing duty as their sales booster!

The Tiago (6008 units) is faring quite well against its primary direct rival, the Celerio (9543 units). With Hyundai ending the old i10's production run, Tata can look to increase the sales of Tiago further in the coming months.

The Zest, Bolt & Tiago have shown the way forward for Tata. The Hexa, Kite 5 & Nexon should help them retain their No. 3 slot against competitors (such as Mahindra, Honda & Renault) who are also eyeing that position.

A lot of Bolts are seen running on yellow plates and recently I'm noticing a few Zests following the same route in the last 3-4 months. The sales numbers for both of these competent products must rise steadily now. A face lift might help bring in some private buyers as well.

The Tiago breaking into top 10 selling cars is a great news and it has got potential to achieve 10k sales figure and I hope it does so in the coming months.

The future seems very bright for Tata Motors at least from product perspective and the love for this brand would only rise given they continue churning out such products backed up by excellent service.
