AdvertisementEven though Tata Motors reported a 14-fold widening in its net loss, which rose to ₹4,416 crore in the September quarter, investors took note of the company’s bullish comments on strong consumer demand.
While announcing its earnings, the company said that demand remains strong for Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and India passenger vehicle business while commercial vehicle demand improves gradually.
However, semiconductor issues and commodity inflation continue to impact Tata Motors near term performance. “The performance is expected to improve gradually starting in H2 [second half of FY22] as both the supply chain and the pandemic situation improves,” said Tata Motors.

Moreover, analysts also remained optimistic on the company’s performance as they see volume recovery soon.

Another positive part for the loss maker was its revenue grew 15% year-on-year to ₹61,378 crore in July-September period. Tata Motors’ electric vehicle business posted nearly three-fold growth with highest monthly and quarterly sales of 1,078 units and 2,704 units, respectively.
