Tata Motors sales decline

Shares of Tata Motors declined around 5% to Rs 393 on the BSE in Monday's early deals after the automaker reported lower-than-expected wholesale volumes for its Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) business.

The automaker, among the largest in the country, blamed lower-than-expected supply of specialised chips from one supplier for failing to meet its target. However, it said new deals with semiconductor suppliers would lead to improved sales in the second half of the fiscal year.

Tata leads India's electric vehicle (EV) market, helped by government subsidies and high tariffs on imports and the company intends to expand its electric passenger vehicle portfolio from 3 EVs at present to 10 by FY26.
