Tata is one of the leading car manufacturers in India, offering a variety of models, especially SUVs, in the market. The manufacturer is known for its build quality, and several instances in the past have proved the same. Tata Nexon is a popular compact SUV in the market, competing with cars like Mahindra XUV300, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Verna, and Maruti Suzuki Brezza. The SUV is available with petrol, diesel, and electric versions. It was the first car in India to get a 5-star safety rating. Here we have a list of popular Indians who actually own a Tata Nexon.
Ratan Tata is a personality who needs no introduction. He is 85 years old and was the man behind several ventures by Tata. He is the reason why Tata entered the passenger vehicle segment. The former chairman of Tata Sons has several expensive cars in his garage. Among those expensive and exotic cars, he also has a humble Tata Nexon compact SUV. The Nexon garnered a lot of fans after scoring 5-star ratings at the Global NCAP crash test. Ratan Tata owns the pre-facelift model in Blue shade. He is using the 1.5-liter turbo diesel version that generates 108 Bhp and 260 Nm of peak torque.

Tata launched the electric version of Nexon in the market in 2020. When the Nexon EV was launched, the Chairman of Tata Sons & Tata Motors, N Chandrasekaran, got himself a Nexon EV. Last year, Tata Motors hit a milestone as they rolled out the 50,000th unit of EV from the factory. On this occasion, N Chandrasekaran decided to take delivery of his second Nexon EV. This time, he took the Nexon EV Prime, which offers slightly more features like multi-mode regen and cruise control. He is probably the only person in this list to own not one but two Nexon EV SUVs.
Popular TV host and actress Mandira Bedi bought the Tata Nexon EV in 2020. She was one of the first celebrities to buy a Nexon EV. The actress opted for the higher XZ+ variant. This is the regular Nexon EV that has a certified range of 312 km and generates 129 Ps and 245 Nm of torque.
