Talking about the overall sales numbers for Tata Motors this fiscal and how Covid-19 impacted the business, Srivatsa says that despite Covid-19, the brand has been growing this year compared to last year, which is all thanks to Tata Motors’ new Forever range of vehicles.

So all Tata vehicles underwent BS6 transformation with a significant upgrade in design, style and performance abilities.
